The visual artist, who is the only child of the late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love, was also spotted hanging out with friends a few days later.

Frances kept it casual in a crop top and a pair of black sweatpants during her time behind the wheel.

The entertainer opted for a sleeveless green top and skintight black pants which contrasted with white heels as she enjoyed the company of her friends.

She was also seen in a mint green top with black pants and white boots while meeting with friends.

It comes after she shocked fans by saying she didn’t think she would live long.

The star began her Instagram post weeks ago by expressing that she didn’t expect to turn 30 years ago.

She wrote: ’30!!! I did it! Honestly, Frances, 20, wasn’t sure this would happen.

The artist went on to write that she has since moved past the doubt she felt during her early years.

“At the time, an intrinsic sense of deep self-loathing driven by insecurity, destructive coping mechanisms, and more trauma than my body or brain knew how to handle, informed how I viewed myself. -self and the world; through a lens of resentment for being brought into a life that apparently attracted so much chaos and the kind of grief-related pain that seemed inescapable,’ she expressed.

Frances then recalled a specific instance where she had a near death experience.

“Then an event on a plane that brought me closer to death is ironically the event that catapulted me to run to this lived experience with radical gratitude. I’m glad I proved myself wrong and found ways to turn pain into knowledge,” she said.

She also shared a quote from author Jaiya John that she “holds tightly,” writing, “The sweeter she got with herself, the sweeter she got with the world.”

“It’s a feeling that I try to remember on a daily basis,” she explained. “As we enter this new decade, I hope to stay gentle no matter how hard the world can get at times, bask in the present moment with reverence, cover the people I’m blessed to love with more appreciation that words could never do justice and hold the space to keep learning, so the growth never stops. I’m glad to be here and I’m glad you’re here too.

Frances’ father, Kurt, struggled with drug addiction and mental health issues throughout his life. He committed suicide at his home in Seattle at the age of 27 in April 1994. Frances was just two years old at the time.

His mother, Courtney, was married to Kurt from 1992 until her death. Frances inherited 37% of her late father’s estate in December 2009.

In 2019, she revealed she felt ‘guilty’ for inheriting the money, which is believed to be more than $95,000 a month, because she ‘didn’t earn it’. People reported.

“It’s almost like this big giant loan that I’m never going to get rid of,” she explained during an episode of the RuPaul: What’s the t-shirt? podcast.

Frances has shared less than a handful of Instagram posts in the past year after taking a year-long hiatus from the platform in 2021.

In June, she revealed on Instagram Stories how she is spending Father’s Day after losing her father as a toddler, detailing how she channels her emotions into a creative project.

“Today it can be complicated for many people,” she wrote. “So I just thought I’d share my annual tradition for this day.”

She continued, “I try to use the energy I feel (sometimes sad, sometimes deeply hurt or lost, but in recent years, curious and compassionate) to bring something to the world that wasn’t there before, to through a kind of creative outlet.’

Frances then said, “I like to believe that if something beautiful can co-exist with something sad or complicated, it allows those emotions to flow with intention and meaning.”

“Sending whatever needs to be sent to you today,” she concluded the message, including three heart and blue butterfly emojis.
