Courtney Love Accuses “Creep” Trent Reznor of “Systemic Abuse” of “Girls as Young as 12”
Courtney Love has once again slammed Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), leveling particularly damning allegations of abuse against the latter musician.
In a June 13 Instagram post, Love slams Grohl and Krist Novoselic — former Nirvana bandmates of her late husband, Kurt Cobain — implying that they took advantage of her grief over Cobain’s suicide in order to get her to sign away her rights to future Nirvana earnings. She says she will now seek to undo that arrangement.
Speaking about Reznor, Love goes on to claim that “I’ve never seen so much systemic abuse of kids, girls as young as 12, by him and his crew, we all (the members of Hole) witnessed it.”
You can read Love’s entire statement below. Neither Reznor nor Grohl have responded as of press time.
Meanwhile, Love has remained mum on the avalanche of allegations made against Reznor’s former protégé, Marilyn Manson. She cameoed in Manson’s video for “Tattooed in Reverse” in 2018.
Earlier this year, Love said he gave up her once-promising career in acting as the result of “a bunch of #metoos.”
“Here’s a few receipts from some mega aggressions I’ve had to deal with, make myself small for, stop righteous lawsuits over, (‘we are not doormats’ my sponsor always quotes to me) due to male privilege in all its vile toxicity. When @sharonstone was asked if she had any #metoo’s, she just laughed. 🙋🏽♀️. We only get 1 right?
“I’ve had enough of this 💩from these clowns leaning into my being scapegoated for breathing, for my husband’s death, for my ‘overt’ sexuality, because I’m an addict, etc, and a WOMAN, for over 27 years.
“3 months before I left LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave [Grohl] (and Krist [Novoselic]) my descendants money in perpetuity. I was so broken. So scarred, so exhausted by him, I just fucking signed it. But it’s a lie. So I’m unsigning it.
“Because it’s nonsense. The chaos and fury over Kurt’s death being directed at me, deflected by Dave, while he enriched and continues to enrich himself, gorging on Kurt’s fortune and Kurt’s goodwill. 27! Years!!! I’ve had enough.
“I’m over being made small. And being ‘forced’ to ‘just drop it’ when it affects every generation of my descendants. Nicest guy in Rock ? No.
“As for Reznor, At least? HE’S talented but still a creep. I’ve never seen so much systemic abuse of kids, girls as young as 12, by him and his crew, we all (the members of Hole) witnessed it. So while these two jack asses are not my #metoo’s because I’m saving my 1 up (because we only get 1) they’re darn close.
“#fuckoff @treznor @nineinchnails @foofighters I really hope my example of standing up to them, putting a stop to them, will prevent any other women (or men) from this soul shattering level of personal and cultural abuse in future . Sexually, spiritually, financially.. #metoo #me3 #me88 etc etc ad nauseam. 💩💩💩🙏#blessed? Yeah to be breathing long enough to tell the tale. I’m cramming as much into every song as I can. ☸️🍄🩰 Nam myoho renge kyo. ‘We are not doormats’”
