Courtney Love accused the Foo Fighters frontman of hitting on the teenager
Dave Grohl has denied accusations levelled at him by Courtney Love, who said that he had tried to seduce her teenage daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
Grohl, who played in Nirvana with Frances’ father Kurt Cobain said in a statement: “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
Love made the accusations last night on Twitter, saying that her daughter’s roommate had told her that Grohl had “hit on Frances” and added that she thought the Foo Fighters frontman was “sexually obsessed” with Kurt, who killed himself 18 years ago.
The posts were made on Love’s private Twitter account, @cbabymichelle, but gossip website Gawker made the posts public on its own site.
According to Gawker, she wrote: “I hear from Frannies roommate that @davegrohl hit on Frances, and that she was curious, I’m not mad at her, him I am about to shoot dead.” She also said that “dave tried to fuck me a lot” but added that he was “sexually obsessed w kurt not me”.
Courtney Love and Dave Grohl have never seen eye to eye, with Love accusing Grohl of wasting Nirvana‘s money. Last month she also accused The Muppets of “raping” the legacy of Kurt. According to TMZ, the Hole singer was outraged that Kermit and co covered the classic Nirvana track ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ in the 2011 flick The Muppets, for which she says they did not seek her permission.
Love, who recently revealed that she had asked U2 singer Bono to provide her with a character reference so she could rent a new house, claims that she owns the rights to Cobain’s music and has the power to approve whether they can be used in commercial projects.
