One of the reasons why Courtney Love remains fascinating despite not having recorded a worthwhile album since the ’90s is because she totally lacks a filter. Just last month, she accused the Muppets of “raping” the memory of Kurt Cobain, but now she’s trained her sights on her longtime enemy, Dave Grohl. Gawker is reporting that Love accused Grohl of trying to seduce her estranged daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, using the private Twitter handle of @Cbabymichelle. Or, as she puts it, “Nothing cuts through the sh*t like a gross old man macking on kurt cobains only child.”
Dave Grohl quickly issued a statement through his rep to Gawker, telling them that “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
This is not the first time that Love and Grohl have engaged in a war of words. A topless Courtney railed on Grohl while on stage during a concert in Brazil back in November, and publicly wished that he be “assraped” back in 2009 when Nirvana songs were licensed to appear in Guitar Hero. For his part, Grohl penned the Foo Fighters song “Stacked Actors” is a not-so-veiled takedown of Love. Clearly, there’s no lack of bad blood between these two, nor is there any desire whatsoever for the two to make amends. And, truth be told, the gossip in all of us thanks them for it.
