Update: Courtney Love has apologized to her daughter Frances Bean Cobain, Tweeting “Bean, sorry I believed the gossip. Mommy loves you.”
Frances Bean Cobain has had a conflicted relationship with her mother Courtney Love practically since the day she was born. And that’s no surprise: we’ve all known for awhile that Love is more than a little off her rocker. But Mom dialed the crazy up a notch last week in a bizarre Twitter tirade in which she accused the Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl of hitting on, and possibly even having sex with, her daughter.
The suggestion is too rife with “creepy uncle” implications to ignore: Grohl was, of course, the drummer in Nirvana, the band fronted by Frances’ late father Kurt Cobain, and has known her since forever. So for Love to say things like “he had his hands all over her” and “if frances did sleep with [Grohl]… it’s dave I’m going to kill” just makes the skin craw… more than just a little.
Frances evidently agrees. She released the following statement on Friday via Grohl’s publicist:
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.
Frances is the only child from the marriage of Love and Cobain. She was raised largely by her paternal grandmother and aunt, Wendy O’Connor and Kimberly Cobain. She is engaged to Isaiah Silva, frontman of the rock band the The Rambles.
