Courtney Love has branded her 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain "deceptive".

The singer posted an angry tirade on her Facebook page after losing custody of the teenager to late husband Kurt Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor and sister Kimberly Dawn Cobain.

She wrote: "I hate to sound cold but any kid of mine who pulls this s**t has lost her position ... she was deceptive, she lied and she's lying to herself."

She also hinted that she would withhold Frances' money from her as a result of her actions.

She added: "Frances is clearly deluded that can buy her grandmother a small house in LA (sic). I'd love to see how that works. She thinks she has all this money. The point is I have all the money she has."

However, Courtney did add a positive note to her posting, admitting she doesn't believe Frances made the decisions herself.

She wrote: "Don't worry, Frances is a wonderful kid, she's got bad people around her and wants it both ways.

"You could've asked for emancipation... you realise this will put you in juvenile family circus three times in your little life? I love you and always will unconditionally."

Currently it is not known why Courtney has lost custody, although lawyers have said that it is not because she has had a drug relapse.

A lawyer for Wendy O'Connor and Kimberly Dawn Cobain, Kurt's sister and mother, would only say the change was a "private family matter."

Courtney, 45, previously lost custody of Frances to Wendy in 2003 after she took an overdose and was subsequently arrested on drug related charges. She won back custody of Frances in 2005 after a lengthy court battle.

A court hearing over the matter is scheduled to take place in February.
