Courtney Love's pricey Bean birthday

- 4 September 2008
Courtney Love spent £150,000 on her daughter's birthday party.
The Hole singer - who is the widow of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - spared no expense in ushering Frances Bean into adulthood at her 'RIP childhood' themed 16th birthday.
The event - held at Los Angeles' House of Blues restaurant - saw Frances sporting a dress previously worn by her father Cobain at a performance at Reading Festival.
Courtney arrived in a dress worn by actress Angelica Huston in creepy comedy movie 'The Addams Family'.
Courtney - who once dated 'Tropic Thunder star Steve Coogan - recently revealed she called on TV hypnotist and weight loss guru Paul McKenna to help shed the pounds.
She said: "I've known Paul for years. I lost weight last year the old-fashioned way by dieting and living off protein shakes. But it was hard to stay disciplined.
"He's brilliant and is totally responsible for me staying so skinny. Whenever I start to feel my resolve weaken, I go to Paul for another hypnosis session."
