Frances Bean Cobain has released a post on Instagram detailing her problems with addiction and celebrating two years of sobriety.
The daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love has kept her additions secret up until this post where she detailed why she chose to keep her personal struggles secret.
The post begins: “I thought I would start this post by using a pure moment in Oahu amongst nature, with my love”. She continues: “This moment is a representation of who I am on February 13th, 2018. It feels significant here, now because it’s my 2nd sober birthday.”
Throughout the extensive post she revealed why she is posting about her sobriety now: “I think it’s more important to put aside my fear about being judged or misunderstood or typecast as one specific thing”.
She also notes what her responsibilities can be as a public figure: “I want to have the capacity to recognize & observe that my journey might be informative, even helpful to other people who are going through something similar or different. It is an everyday battle to be in attendance for all the painful, bazaar, uncomfortable, tragic, f—- up things that have ever happened or will ever happen”.

Recently, Cobain shared a cover of the Leonard Cohen classic ‘Hallelujah’ over Instagram.
Along with her latest run through of the 1984 classic (later given a legendary cover by Jeff Buckley among many others), 2016 saw Frances Bean cover Jimmy Eat World’s pop punk anthem ‘The Middle‘ while dressed as Fred Flinstone.
Last year to mark what would have been Kurt Cobain’s 50th birthday, Frances Bean shared an emotional text message from her grandmother.
