LOS ANGELES (AP) — A court filing shows the only daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love has been placed in a temporary guardianship.

The filing states Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor and his sister Kimberly Dawn Cobain are now caring for the 17-year-old daughter.

The filings do not mention Love or give a reason for the guardianship.

A three-page order issued Friday is all that is publicly available.

Attorney Geraldine Wyle, who is handling the case for the mother and sister, calls it a private family matter and said no other comment would be issued.

An e-mail message to Love's publicist Alan Nierob seeking comment was not immediately returned Monday.

The court order, which is valid until February, grants Cobain's mother and sister no control over a trust established by the Nirvana frontman for his daughter.

The guardianship was first reported by TMZ.com.

    'Ocean's 8' star Anne Hathaway's first commercial can hardly be considered acting. Mainly because, for the first few hours on set, she didn't realize the cameras were rolling.
