From Rolling Stone:
Courtney Love has accused Dave Grohl of attempting to seduce her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Gawker reports. The Hole singer made the accusations on her private Twitter account last night, claiming that her estranged daughter’s roommate informed her that the Foo Fighters frontman “hit on Frances.” Grohl is, of course, the former bandmate of Frances’ father, Kurt Cobain, and has known her since she was an infant.
In a series of subsequent tweets, Love threatened Grohl and speculated on his “pathology,” noting that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins resembles Cobain and is in the “submissive drummer position” in the band, and that he named his daughter Violet, which happens to be the name of one of Love’s biggest hits. She later declared that Grohl is “sexually obsessed” with Kurt, relaying information from a driver who claimed that Grohl had “his hands all over” Frances in his car.
This lady really is off her nut, huh? I mean, Dave Grohl is probably, like, the nicest band person in Hollywood. He’s been married nine years, he’s got kids of his own, he’s always doing humanitarian work under the radar, and to really put the thing to rest, I’m sure there’s positively no way that he’d want to tie himself further to Courtney Love than he already is, beyond the fact that he happened to be good friends with her husband, who’s been dead for, oh I don’t know, almost twenty years.
Courtney’s got a protected Twitter account, but Gawker got a screenshot of the f-ckery, and this is much what it looked like:
And here’s the rest:
Of course, Grohl and his camp denied it, making an official statement (not on Twitter) that alluded to Courtney’s craziness:
“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
I feel bad that Dave had to go as far as publicly denying this, because no one should be giving Courtney an ounce of credibility (it’s only going to encourage this kind of BS, seriously), and as for Frances Bean? God. Poor girl. She just doesn’t stand a chance as long as this lady is living.
