The saga of Seattle’s most famous band never seems to end. In supposedly private Twitter messages obtained by Gawker.com and passed on to Rolling Stone magazine, Courtney Love accuses Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of “hitting on” her daughter, 19 year old Frances Bean Cobain.
In one “Tweet” Courtney says “I hear from Frannies roommate that Dave Grohl hit on Frances, and that she was curious, I’m not mad at her, him I am about to shoot, dead”
Frances Bean Cobain has a legal restraining order against Courtney, who is not allowed to contact her, her grandmother or aunt who she lives with, or her dog. Frances says that Courtney killed another dog when it swallowed a “pile of her pills”.
Courtney has been taking public pot-shots at Cobain’s former Nirvana bandmates Grohl and Krist Novoselic for years now, usually over money.
For his part, the Foo Fighters guitarist issued a statement:
“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
These days former Seattle residents Courtney Love and Dave Grohl both live in Los Angeles.
