Courtney Love’s daughter wants Twitter to ban mom’s crazy rants


Kurt Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, has led an erratic life since the rocker’s death. Her estranged daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, isn’t happy with mom’s bizarro rants on Twitter. Love has both a public account (@courtney) and a private, locked account (@cbabymichelle). On the latter account, she alleged this week that her daughter had been the subject of sexual advances from former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.


“While I’m generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn,” Cobain said in a statement. “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.”

Love made the allegations on her private Twitter account, claiming that she’d been told the Foo Fighters frontman had “hit on Frances,” and called Grohl “sexually obsessed” with Kurt Cobain — her late husband and Grohl’s late Nirvana bandmate.

Grohl denied the accusations in a statement of his own.

“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue,” he said.

Here are embedded tweets from one of the followers of Love’s protected account who tweeted with her about her allegations at the time she published the tweets earlier this week:

Screencaps of Love’s unlovely diatribe against her daughter and Grohl are here.

Much of the Twitter reaction, mercifully,  is on poor Frances Bean’s side:

No matter how embarrassing you might find your mother at times, consider how easy you've got it compared to poor Frances Bean Cobain …
