[UPDATED with Frances Bean's Statement] Courtney Love Hates Dave Grohl...Or Does She?

UPDATE, April 12, 2012, 5:51 p.m.:
Frances Bean Cobain has also released a statement:
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. 

UPDATE, April 11, 2012, 12:34 p.m: Dave Grohl just released a statement, and it's as sane and lucid as Courtney Love's twitter rants are not. Here goes:
"Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."

I hoped he'd take the low road--the twitter rants are obviously untrue. Love's beef with Grohl has been going on for 17 years, and we're surprised he hasn't flipped out yet. He should have said "I'm sick of her shit and her strange obsession with me and my family."


Original post, 11:34 a.m., April 11, 2012:
Just when you thought things couldn't get weirder in the life and times of Courtney Love, they certainly did. Last night on her private Twitter account, the ex-wife of Kurt Cobain accused his former bandmates and her longtime adversary, Dave Grohl, of hitting on her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean. Normally, this news would have been pounced on by the paparazzi, but considering the source, it's difficult to imagine that this is true.


Though it sounds alarming, I can't believe that anything she says is true, even with her own daughter. Here's the long and short of the situation. The former Mrs. Cobain's accusations claimed that her estranged daughter's roommate informed her that the Foo Fighters singer hit on Frances. This naturally led to an extensive thread threatening Grohl and speculated on his "pathology," noting that Foo's drummer Taylor Hawkins looks like Cobain and is in the "submissive drummer position" in the band (ironic since Grohl was Nirvana's drummer), and that he named his daughter Violet, (the name of one of Love's biggest hits), which in her eyes, further demonstrates his obsession with all things Cobain. (Peep her rant here)

Holy shit, I think of all the things that Love has done (remember in November when she went off on him when she saw a fan in Brazil carrying a Cobain banner?), this may take the cake.

Antics and past aside, does she really think that Grohl, who's married and lives in the Valley with his family, and is a fixture on the sushi circuit out there, would possibly be willing to risk pretty much everything he has and his sterling reputation as one of rock's good guys to sleep with his former bandmates's kid? Really? Does that make ANY sense to any logical person?


Maybe, just maybe I have a conclusion: is Courtney Love in love with Dave Grohl? Why else would this one-sided feud be going on for nearly two decades? Perhaps Love thinks so highly of the guy that she has suppressed feelings towards her ex's bandmate and this is her way of acting out. When you hate a person so much, is it true that you love them, or are you just so unaware and so batshit crazy that you really hate them? In the case of Courtney Love, who the hell knows what she's really thinking.

Just to offer one correction to this article, Courtney Love is Kurt Cobain's widow, not his ex-wife. She's never remarried, so technically, she's still his wife.

So let me get this straight. Courtney has millions of dollars and the best thing she has to do with her time is post fake comments supporting herself and bashing her kid on blog articles? I'm just glad Frances was able to get away from her without being killed too.

I've often thought the same thing myself that she is in love with him and he will not give it to her.

"Come as you are, As you were, as I want you to beAs a friend As a friend As I have no memoryAnd I swear that I don't have a gun No I don't have a gun"===============

But that wasn't true because he committed suicide.

"Would 'possibly' be willing to risk pretty much everything he has and his sterling reputation as one of rock's good guys to sleep with his former bandmates's kid? Really? Does that make ANY sense to any logical person?" = NOPE! NO! NADA! ZILCH!

Would blow anyone away 'if' it became true. And that's a big IF.

I hate Dave too! After seeing him rock back in November....I hate him even more! He shreds on the guitar & drums, has a killer voice and writes music that makes me cry!

Yeah, I hate him!! and Taylor too...

As much I love Courtney but she should apologize to Dave! Dave will never do that to Frances. Either she's regretting or continue this beef, I understand she upset but apologize and let it go. Dave is not a pervert! Courtney should know that,whoever told that rumor to her need to be lock up. This is damaging to all of them

I am very dissapointed in your article talking negatively about Courtney Love. This isnt professional journalism, more like National Enquirer type style. Daniel, wow i am amazed by your ability to put Dave Grohl in a saintly spotlight, im assuming your a Foo fighter fan? Well i am a big Courtney Love fan, and Courtney is a great woman and shes my favorite singer (ive talked to her on twitter and saw Hole in Hollywood in 2010). I will defend Miss Love as you continue to spread your hate

Marc i agree with you Dave is stupid Foo Fighters suck! I dont know why people listen to stupid foo fighters. Dave can't sing worth beans. Kurt was always the talented one

Hey Butterballs, Courtney used to do drugs. Get over it. Shes clean and sober now (watch Behind the Music courtney love on youtube). People always gotta say something about Courtney especially the haters. I think Frances misses Kurt, and when Kurt committed suicide he was so lost in the depression he didnt think about courtney or Frances. I am a true Courtney fan and will always defend her. She has a great fanbase and we support her 100% Team Courtney!

 Actually Dave Grohl has millions of fans because he is an extremely talented musician on many levels, drums he is amazing, guitar he is great, he's got a damn good voice and can pull shapes with it. You're trying to compare apples and oranges, really. Also, you have to consider time. Grunge was a popular thing in the early to mid 90s, being a large part of nirvana's success. Foo Fighters is a completely different animal, and much more musical. Your comments smellslikeyoudon'tknowwhatthefuckyou'retalkingabout.

Both are great bands in their own planes of existence, and both are (well, one still is, obviously) talented musicians. For kurt, one might just say teenage angst has paid off well. Bet you won't even understand that reference.

Too bad you can't write. I've been a Foo Fighters fan since I was a kid, and I didn't even know that Fooey's singer was the drummer from Nirvana. So no, not every fan of Foo Fighters is a fan just because Dave was in Nirvana. I love both Nirvava and Foo Fighters, you can't really compare them. They're basically two different genres of music;

Nirvana: GrungeFoo Fighters: Post Punk/Rock

But they're both equally good!

still foo fighters suck bottom line Nirvana was much better band, Dave was jealous of kurt. people only like foo fighters because dave was the drummer in nirvana, too bad the drummber cant sing haha

She was probably buying whatever Frances' room mate was dealing. But I'm glad Frances hasn't followed in her mother's footsteps.
