Courtney Love has apologised to her teenage daughter, Frances Bean, for claiming Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl tried to seduce the 19-year-old.

Love made the accusations last week on Twitter, saying that her daughter's roommate had told her that Grohl had "hit on Frances". But, last night (April 14), Love took to her Twitter account to say sorry to her daughter, following her most recent outburst.

She wrote:



Earlier this week, Frances Bean called on Twitter to ban her mother from using the social networking site. Frances stated that nothing untoward happened with the Foo Fighters' frontman, insisting she has "never been approached" by Grohl.

Her full statement, via Rolling Stone, reads: "While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother."

Grohl, who played in Nirvana with Frances' father Kurt Cobain, has also denied the accusations, saying in his own statement: "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."

Meanwhile, Courtney Love reunited with the mid-'90s line-up of Hole for the first time in 15 years in New York last Friday (April 13) - scroll down and click below to watch fan footage of their two-song performance.

The singer was beckoned onstage by bassist Melissa Auf der Maur at an after-party for Hit So Hard, a new documentary about drummer Patty Schemel, at the city's Public Assembly venue. Love sang on Hole's 1994 single 'Miss World', before returning for an encore cover of legendary punk group the Wipers' 'Over The Edge'.
