Frances Bean Cobain offers support to Robin Williams’ daughter

After the tragic suicide of beloved actor and comedian Robin Williams, many mourned his loss on social media, but some have publicly offered support to the Williams family. Frances Bean Cobain—the daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who took his own life in 1994—offered her support to Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda (her friend) on Twitter

“You have such an incredibly beautiful soul,” Cobain said. “I love you, but you already knew that. Wherever, whenever you need me, I'll be there.”

Cobain was responding to a quote Williams had posted from Antoine De-Saint-Exupery that reads: “You—you alone will have the stars as no one else has them… In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the starts were laughing, when you look at the sky at night… You—only you—will have stars that can laugh."
