UPDATE: Dave Grohl has responded to Love’s accusations in a statement: “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
Courtney Love has accused Dave Grohl of attempting to seduce her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Gawker reports. The Hole singer made the accusations on her private Twitter account last night, claiming that her estranged daughter’s roommate informed her that the Foo Fighters frontman “hit on Frances.” Grohl is, of course, the former bandmate of Frances’ father, Kurt Cobain, and has known her since she was an infant.
In a series of subsequent tweets, Love threatened Grohl and speculated on his “pathology,” noting that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins resembles Cobain and is in the “submissive drummer position” in the band, and that he named his daughter Violet, which happens to be the name of one of Love’s biggest hits. She later declared that Grohl is “sexually obsessed” with Kurt, relaying information from a driver who claimed that Grohl had “his hands all over” Frances in his car.
This is hardly the first time Love has attacked Grohl in public. Back in November, the singer launched into a tirade against him at a festival in Brazil prompted by her outrage at a fan carrying a poster of Cobain in the audience.
