As the ongoing saga of Seattle’s Most Famous Band continues: You’ll recall that last week Courtney Love made accusations via Twitter that her husband’s former drummer, Dave Grohl, had hit on, and possibly had sex with, Kurt and Courtney’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Courtney retracted those accusations, again via Twitter, over the weekend:
“Bean, sorry I believed the gossip…Mommy loves you”.
Courtney has been feuding publicly with Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, mostly over money, on and off since Kurt’s suicide in 1994. 19-Year-old Frances (named for 1930’s Hollywood actress Frances Farmer, “The Bad Girl of West Seattle High” and the subject of several films and movies) has had a court-order preventing contact from Courtney since 2009, and issued a public 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.”
