We kept you up to date about Courtney Love‘s latest Twitter rant, which went down last week. The tirade was due to the fact that she believed that Dave Grohl was trying to get it on with her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. The magnitude of ick here is unbelievable. We all know Grohl was in Nirvana with Love’s late husband, Kurt Cobain. So he’s been around Frances since she was a tyke. But Ms. Courtney never is one for reason and she isn’t one for tact, so one of her many tweets went something like, “Well if bean did have sex with @davegrohl which I’ve now heard reliable sources and a driver 3rd time, its fine on her part, he’s insane.”
Grohl and Frances both denied her allegations, with Grohl saying, “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.” Frances gave a longer, very strongly worded statement, that ended with, “Twitter should ban my mother.” That doesn’t seem to be happening, but what is unfolding, is Love’s typical Twitter shame-attack which always seems to happen to her a couple of days after she launches into a diatribe. This time her apology comes in the form of a tweet (what else) which reads, “Bean, sorry I believed the gossip. Mommy loves you” which made us want to grab Courtney and shake her by the shoulders. Next time, cut out the baby talk, Courtney. Actually, while we’re wishing for things, how about this — Courtney, stop picking the gossip and talk to your daughter.

We guess you couldn’t pass a law against just Courtney Love using Twitter … could you? Only her? We know legislature aimed at one specific unstable individual probably wouldn’t fly with the Supreme Court, but we don’t know how else you can stop Love from making some pretty repulsive accusations via social media. For example, her Twitter rant early this week accusing Dave Grohl of trying to sleep with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain. “Well if bean did have sex with @davegrohl which I’ve now heard reliable sources and a driver 3rd time, its fine on her part, he’s insane,” Love claimed in part. Reliable sources and a driver 3rd time, you say? Looks like Courtney might have a quite a case of her own! What it’s a case of, exactly, we’re not completely sure.
“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue,” Grohl replied through his rep yesterday with an almost audible sigh. Today Frances herself denied the icky accusations, telling Us Weekly, “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 [with the Rambles’ Isaiah Silva], and very happy.” Said Bean, “Twitter should ban my mother.” Unfortunately for you, Frances, if they didn’t ban her after her first three or four…hundred Twitter defamation lawsuits, we highly doubt they are going to start now.

Just reading about the battles between Courtney Love and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain really tires us out. They’re so explosive! We’re going to hear a lot more from them after they read about this story put together by The Fix. Maer Roshan first interviewed Courtney back in 2010 and has kept in touch with her ever since. That interview was published last May, and now it’s being transformed into an e-book called Courtney Comes Clean that reveals a whole lot of other information about the troubled sometimes-singer. This includes some truly shocking details from Frances’ sealed deposition against her mother from 2009, and more drug-related confessions from Courtney. Read more…
We can’t help but be glad any time Frances Bean is in the news for any reason other than a Courtney Love lawsuit; the girl has grown up to be a pretty fabulous young lady despite everything (i.e. Courtney Love). This time we’re giving ourselves license to squee, as InTouch reports that the daughter of Ms. Love and the late great Kurt Cobain is allegedly engaged to The Rambles’ Isaiah Silva.
“Yes, sheâ€™s engaged and they moved in together in a big house near Runyon Canyon,â€ their source claims. If we needed further proof (and hey, it doesn’t hurt) apparently the couple of over a year updated their Facebook statuses to “engaged,” with Bean adding, â€œGetting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world.â€ Another source confirmed the happy news to People, though the pair have since changed their statuses back. Let’s hope Frances and her man are actually in it to win it; girl deserves all the happiness she can cram in before Courtney Love’s tell-all comes out and blows up her spot.
Today in news we don’t quite believe-slash-attribute to the ravings of a mad woman, Courtney Love is claiming her daughter Frances Bean Cobain was offered the role of Bella Swan in Twilight, and that she was also offered the title role in Alice In Wonderland. Those are some amazing job offers for a girl who has never acted a day in her life.
Love told You Magazine “Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn’t want to be famous. She was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for Alice in Wonderland. But she wants to go to college – she’s very good at graphic novels… Frances will be fine.” Well, we know Frances has a knack for drawing and in fact, it might fit in well with Tim Burton’s aesthetic, but that has nothing to do with her acting in two huge films. It’s great that Courtney’s offhanded remarks make it seem likeÃ‚Â Kristen Stewart was just sloppy seconds.Ã‚Â Love must have a grudge against Robsten because this isn’t the first time she’s insulted them – remember her beef with Robert Pattinson, when she said that he would be a “stupid” choice to play Kurt Cobain? One thing seems pretty clear after all this – she’s Team Jacob.
Given her musical genes, you’d expect Frances Bean Cobain to perhaps follow in her parents’ footsteps and join a band. Franny B. has decided to channel her genetic angst into another outlet though as a visual artist. The seventeen year old is currently part of a exhibit at the Los Angeles La Luz de Jesus gallery, and the show is pleasantly called “Scumf*ck”.
Painting under the pseudonym “Fiddle Tim”, Cobain’s artwork is, well, scary. At least, it’s scary in the way that old Nine Inch Nails videos are scary, in a kind of phony-gothic way that makes us wonder what happened to people when they were kids to make them so dark. In Cobain’s case, Courtney Love is what happened to her, so she gets a pass. For a look at all of Cobain’s art, check out the gallery and let us know what you think.

Miley Cyrus is an enigma to us at this point. She (and her deep, dark soul) are just so dissatisfied with pop culture, including country music and Twilight, and now she doesn’t even like poor, defenseless little Justin Bieber. Miley told MTV News that even though she and Bieber tend to appeal to the same crowd, she’s not really into him. Sayeth Miley “Bieber fever … I’m not necessarily a fan. I don’t listen to that kind of music.” It’s funny because, um, she makes that kind of music. So what is she into? Oddly enough, the same thing we were into at 17 – Nirvana. “I like Kurt Cobain,” she explained. “[He] is like my dream boyfriend.” Sorry, Liam Hemsworth, you don’t smell nearly enough like teen spirit for this grunge chick.
Couple things: a) We wonder if Courtney Love has anything to say about this (of course if she does Tweet about it, Miley will surely be too busy playing sports outside to notice) and b) Why doesn’t Miley try to befriend Frances Bean Cobain? They’re the same age and they both have famous musicians for parents. And who knows, maybe Frances’ dream guy is Billy Ray Cyrus. [Photos: Getty Images]
Courtney Love may be legally restricted from talking to daughter Frances Bean Cobain, but she can still talk about her. Love blamed the split—and the following restraining order—on an October fight, though she says Frances was the abusive one. “Frances came out of my room. She was hysterical,” Love told the New York Daily News. “First she was crying at my legs, saying, ‘Why was I born?’ Then she bites and scratches and pulls on my hair. She punched me…I grabbed her with both arms. That left a bruise and she took a picture of her bruise.” Wherever did Frances learn such deviousness?
Thankfully, Love says ex-boyfriend Edward Norton is serving as a mediator between the two, despite all those tweets where she accused the star of costing her six figures in shady money deals. “I feel very bad,” she confessed, now saying he actually tripled her money (math is hard, yo!). “I have the greatest respect for Edward. He could be the President of the United States. I could be his drug czar – ha, ha.” Ha. If this wasn’t enough drama for you, Love also says Frances’ lawyer may have been driven by Brit-daddy Jamie Spears to attack the Hole singer after she said one of Spears’ relatives claimed he sexually abused her (Love is pals with former Brit manager Sam Lufti, no stranger to restraining orders). If you’re a celebrity who hasn’t had a regrettable encounter with Courtney Love yet, you’re just not trying.

With only seven months to go until Frances Bean Cobain‘s 18th birthday, the matter of her custody will soon be moot. But from the way Courtney Love is tweeting, a legal battle between her and current guardians grandmother Wendy O’Connor and aunt Kim Cobain could continue well after the candles are blown out. “This s–t with the Bean needs to be exposed for what it is right f–king NOW enough,” she shared with her followers (typos hers). “They squeesed my bank accounts so that they were frozen because they know im going to sue the holy s–t out of them and now are…crocodiling my kid whose better than this seriously she was raised too well to be bought.” Was she, now?
Despite her obvious disappointment—and oh yeah, that restraining order—Love still has plenty of affection for “the Bean.” “im severely lonely without my best friend and no am not on drugs BTW.” All the more reason to give us that album and tour you’ve been promising for over three years, Courtney! Sounds like you’ve got plenty to sing about.
Looks like Courtney Love‘s lawyer spoke too soon when he said her losing custody of Frances Bean Cobain was “simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother at this time.” According to TMZ, the 17-year-old daughter of Love and late rocker Kurt Cobain has filed a restraining order against her mom, with a hearing set for January to potentially make it permanent.
For now, Love isn’t allowed to have “direct or indirect” contact with her kid—but do poorly spelled Facebook wall posts count? “i very uch miss my daughter being a private person, and i very much miss my daighter,” wrote Love after the news broke (typos hers). “i know she knows how miserable i am im despairing and so sad, so so sad, but i just want to help her be happy, thats it, get her house and get her school and thats all ive ever wanted.”
