Love and Kurt Cobain maintained that Vanity Fair took her words out of context. Eventually, child welfare services launched an investigation into their parenting abilities. The investigation was ultimately dismissed, but not without a significant amount of legal wrangling and Frances being removed from her parents’ custody for a short time, beginning when she was two weeks old. On April 1, 1994, the artist visited her father at the Exodus Recovery Center, a rehab center in Marina del Rey, California, where they played together.
