The thing is they are just your friend. You get to go home at the end of the day or after the movie, and can check caller i.d. before picking up the phone. Unfortunately Frances Bean Cobain doesn't have that luxury when dealing with her mom. Now, I'm sure she loves her mom, but actually I have always wondered whether The Bean isn't in fact the mom in this relationship. How many times do you think The Bean has been embarrassed by her mother?
The latest incident occurred this past week in the Virgin Airlines First Class lounge at LAX. Courtney decided she needed to have a cigarette. Just had to have one despite the fact it is against the law to law light up in the airport. Instead of just popping in some Nicotine gum, Courtney decided to go ahead and break the law. Virgin was not pleased and kicked her ass out of the airport and told her she could fly the next day.
I'm maybe thinking there is more to this than just a cigarette, but the cigarette is the official reason. The Bean is 15 and probably told her mom to not smoke and that everything would be ok. Courtney probably told her that she was big star and nothing would happen to her. Unfortunately Courtney isn't a star anymore, just living off her dead husband's money and going through it at an alarming rate.
So, we can all imagine the resigned look on The Bean's face when Virgin kicked them out. The inevitable yelling and cursing from her mom. The indignation that Courtney could do anything wrong, and then the limo ride back home.
For her part, Courtney had this to say to the press. "I had a fag in the first class lounge, like two hits, and they wouldn’t let me on the plane with my daughter. They made some big thing like I’m a f**king terrorist or something. It was embarrassing.”
I'm sure it was embarrassing. Not only because you are not British yet use British slang, and also because you probably didn't even consider who was more embarrassed than you. Your daughter. Way to set another great example, and to make sure your daughter burns through her father's money in therapy.
