Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean has reached out to Robin Williams' grieving daughter Zelda during her time of need.

Cobain took his own life in 1994 when Frances was just two years old, and she was raised by mum Courtney Love, from whom she is now estranged.

But Frances is offering her moral support to Zelda Williams, who lost her father to suicide on Monday night.

"@zeldawilliams You have such an incredibly beautiful soul. I love you but you already knew that. Wherever, whenever u need me I'll be there," she wrote on Twitter last night.

It comes just before Zelda and her siblings Cody (21) and Zachary (19) released their only statement on their father's death last night.

“Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a little grayer. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought,” Zachary wrote.

Zelda Rae’s tribute also called attention to how her father’s death impacts all members of society.

She believes his joy can never truly be replaced.

“While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions,” she shared.

“Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colourful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.”

Robin’s youngest son Cody feels his presence, despite the fact his father is no longer with is in the flesh.

“I will miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him again,” he said.
