Courtney Love killed family pets, daughter claims.

New York, Feb 3 ( ANI ): Courtney Love is described as an unstable maternal figure, in newly released deposition papers that were filed by her daughter in 2009 seeking a restraining order against the troubled rocker.

Frances Bean Cobain, now 19, says Love's wreckless behaviour even caused the death of the family dog and cat.

According to the court papers, the cat died after getting entangled in the 47-year-old musician's messy piles of "Etsy fabrics, boxes of paperwork, trash and other possessions", while the dog swallowed several of her stash of prescription pills.

In order to ensure that no other pets would fall victim to Love's pill-popping habits, Cobain included her dog, Uncle Fester, on the restraining order, which was granted.

Among those, Love was ordered to avoid contact with Cobain, Uncle Fester, Cobains' grandmother and her aunt.

In the papers, originally obtained by The Fix, Cobain also laments Love's worrying drug use.

"She has taken drugs for as long as I can remember," the New York Daily News quoted Cobain as saying.

"She basically exists now on ... Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats ... She often falls asleep in her bed while she is smoking, and I am constantly worried that she will start a fire which she has done at least three times that will threaten our lives," she said.

Cobain initially filed the restraining order against her mother in the L.A. Superior Court in December 2009 following a physical fight between the two.

At the time, Cobain spoke out about another bizarre incident that occurred several years before. Cobain claimed Love dragged her to the home of Love's former boyfriend, James Barber.

"She took me in a taxi to his house in the middle of the night, and from outside the house, in her bare feet, she screamed at him, threw rocks at the house, and threatened to burn his house down.

"His children were inside the house, but that did not stop my mother," Cobain said.

Mother and daughter have had a rocky relationship since the restraining order was granted. But Cobain is trying to move on with her life. She became engaged to The Ramgles singer Isaiah Silva in October and they are looking forward to their upcoming nuptials. ( ANI )
