Courtney Love Apologizes For Slamming Dave Grohl In Her Recent IG Post
Hole lead vocalist and late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, shared a post on her official Instagram stories in order to apologize for her deleted post in which she made quite a few controversial claims about Foo Fighters’ frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as well as Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor.
For those of you who might not remember, after the disbandment of Nirvana due to the loss of lead singer Kurt Cobain at the age of 27, on April 8, 1994, the ongoing dispute between his wife Courtney Love and remaining members of the band, drummer Dave Grohl, and bassist Krist Novoselic began since both sides started turning their back to each other and made it to the court oftentimes over the band’s name and fortune.
For years, their feud didn’t stop and both remaining members of Nirvana and Kurt Cobain’s wife sued each other for decades in addition to making bold accusations about each other most of which turned out to be rumors. However, both sides, especially Dave Grohl and Courtney Love were known to be on good terms after the band’s Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony on April 11, 2014.
According to Courtney Love who opened up about the current status between him and former Nirvana drummer during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live around the same time and stated that after two decades of suing each other, the two buried the hatchet and became two friends who text each other and talk about their old memories.
This was almost seven years ago and since then, both Grohl and Love seemed to get along as neither of them made an accusation about each other let alone suing one another once again. It’s recently proved to be otherwise by Love herself as she shared a post on her official Instagram page and got everything off of her chest and let it all out about Grohl when it comes to a royalties agreement related to Nirvana. In addition to lashing out Foo Fighters frontman, Love also accused Nine Inch Nails’ frontman Trent Reznor of abusing young girls.
Hee is what Courtney Love said:
“3 months before I left LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave (and Krist) my descendant’s 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 jackasses are not my #metoo’s because I’m saving my 1 up (because we only get 1) they’re darn close.
Fuck off Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails, Foo Fighters. 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 the future. Sexually, spiritually, financially. Blessed? Yeah to be breathing long enough to tell the tale. I’m cramming as much into every song as I can. ‘We are not doormats.'”
Immediately after sharing the post, Courtney Love decided to delete it, and instead, she shared a statement on her official Instagram stories and apologized for the deleted post which was a mistake to share in the first place, according to her. Furthermore, Hole frontwomen stated that she needed to be more responsible when it comes to her words all of which were quite bold and offensive.
Here is what Love said:
“I need to apologize for my recent post. It was insensitive and it was wrong. No matter how I feel, there are real people behind my words and I need to learn to be more responsible with my words. I am truly sorry for those I’ve hurt. I will do better.”
