FRANCES BEAN COBAIN SENDS WARM REGARDS TO COURTNEY LOVE, SAYS SHE DIDN’T HOOK UP WITH DAVE GROHL
Earlier this week, Courtney Love took to Twitter (That’s where she’s a viking!) and claimed that Dave Grohl hit on, and very likely slept with, Frances Bean Cobain, her daughter with the late Kurt Cobain (duh). And even though I don’t think anyone believed Courtney’s story for a second, Frances Bean has now released a statement denying it:
“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 [with musician Isaiah Silva] and very happy.
“Twitter should ban my mother.”
“My biological mother”… ouch.
Lucky for us, though, Courtney is standing by her story, thus providing us with several column inches’ worth of more entertainment.
She completely fails to prove her story in a new interview with The New York Daily News, offering such irrelevant allegation as “[Grohl] used to consistently hit on me back in the day,” “slept with three of my bass players” from Hole, and dishonored Kurt Cobain’s memory by allowing last year’s The Muppets movie to use “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on the soundtrack: “Dave knows Kurt wouldn’t have wanted to be a Muppet,” Love says, thus proving that she either didn’t see the movie (there is no Muppet Cobain character) or otherwise believes that everyone who sings any Nirvana song automatically channels Cobain’s ghost. Actually, it might be the latter: “It’s natural [Frances Bean would] be curious to find out why I don’t like [Grohl], and why her father doesn’t,” Love added, speaking as though Kurt were still alive while further not-at-all proving her point.
So while I feel Frances Bean’s pain, I really hope that Twitter doesn’t ban her mother. Because it feels good to laugh sometimes.
In conclusion, here’s a photo of some guy pushing Courtney down the street in a shopping cart:
