Frances Bean Cobain Reaches Out to Robin Williams’ Daughter
Sadly, Kurt Cobain‘s daughter Frances Bean now has even more in common with Robin Williams’ 25-year-old daughter, Zelda. The pair are apparently friends, and now they share the horror of their respective fathers taking their own lives.
In the wake of the suicide of the legendary comedian, Cobain, 21, took to Twitter to offer her support to Williams’ daughter. NME reports Cobain tweeted, “You have such an incredibly beautiful soul. I love you but you already knew that. Whenever wherever u need me, I’ll be there.”
The tweet has since been removed, but hopefully Cobain has other ways to reach her: US Weekly notes that Williams said she would be deleting her Twitter account and abandoning her Instagram due to Internet trolls posting hurtful messages and photos as she mourns.
I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.

Williams posted a more detailed message on Instagram:
I will be leaving this account for a bit while I heal and decide if I’ll be deleting it or not,” she wrote. “In this difficult time, please try to be respectful of the accounts of myself, my family and my friends. Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary. There are a couple throughout, but the real private moments I shared with him were precious, quiet, and believe it or not, not full of photos or ‘selfies’. I shared him with a world where everyone was taking their photo with him, but I was lucky enough to spend time with him without cameras too. That was more than enough, and I’m grateful for what little time I had. My favorite photos of family are framed in my house, not posted on social media, and they ‘ll remain there. They would’ve wound up on the news or blogs then, and they certainly would now. That’s not what I want for our memories together. Thank you for your respect and understanding in this difficult time. Goodbye. Xo
