It pains me to report on it when Courtney Love does crazy stuff, so I’ll try to make this concise. The 47-year-old queen of grunge caused a bit of a stir on the Internet (and most likely among her legal team) late last night when she posted a long and confusing rant accusing Dave Grohl of hitting on, putting his hands all over, and sleeping with her 19-year-old daughter Frances Bean (pictured above in the arms of RuPaul) as well as being “sexually obsessed” with Kurt Cobain. She also said he tried to sleep with her, Courtney Love, “a lot” back in the day, and had that “Romney rape thing” about him. She made some threats against Grohl throughout like “him I am about to shoot” and “it’s Dave that I’m going to kill,” which is maybe not the best thing to say when your tweets have already landed you in legal trouble multiple times.
First, let’s give credit where credit is due. While it makes little literal sense, “Romney rape thing” is an amazing turn of phrase and I know exactly what she means by it. But that doesn’t make it okay to be flinging accusations around without any proof. Grohl responded through his publicist that “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.” Considering the huge hate-on Courtney has carried for Dave Grohl for years now, as well as the fact that Frances is engaged to a hottie her own age, I’m inclined to believe him.
