Scandal wasn't far behind. Before she was born, a Vanity Fair article by Lynn Hirschberg titled "Strange Love" alleged that Courtney admitted to using heroin during her pregnancy, even when she knew that she was pregnant. However, Kurt and Courtney said her words were taken out of context. So it wasn't a surprise that once Frances was born, Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services began investigating Kurt and Courtney's parenting abilities. Frances was even removed from her parents' custody when she was just two weeks old. However, the case was eventually dropped.
