When Dave Grohl Was Accused By Courtney Love Of Having Sex With Kurt Cobain’s Daughter Frances Bean
There’s no doubt that the infamous feud between the late Nirvana frontman’s wife Courtney Love and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl had its controversial moments including countless lawsuits that were mainly about the fortune of the band. However, Grohl managed to stay silent on his social media accounts as long as Love didn’t come for the former members of Nirvana throughout the whole dispute until Hole frontwomen made an unexpected claim about his then 19-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
As many of you know, after the passing of Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain at the age of 27, on April 8, 1994, an endless dispute started between Courtney Love and Cobain’s former bandmates. The feud initially started when Love sued Grohl and Novoselic in 2001 to dissolve a limited liability company that had been previously established to control the band’s finances. As a result, both former members including Dave Grohl counter-sued Courtney Love in order to remove her from the limited liability company which heated things up even further.
Despite the lawsuit was later settled, the arguments never came to an end considering the unreleased material of the Nirvana that caused quite the trouble for the case. While the feud was already very controversial both for the fans and the media, Courtney accused Grohl of seducing her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, in the middle of all of these. Let’s break down the story of how Dave Grohl reacted to the accusations made by his late bandmate’s widow.
Dave Grohl Was Accused Of Having Sex With The Daughter Of Kurt Cobain By Courtney Love
Back in 2012, Courtney Love shared a post on her official Twitter page, later deleted, accusing Dave Grohl of having sex with her then 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. According to Love, her daughter’s roommate told her that Grohl tried to seduce her and the two ended up having sex. While telling the story, Kurt’s widow stressed the fact that she is only mad at Grohl, not her daughter.
In the deleted post, Love shared:
“I hear from Frannie’s roommate that Dave Grohl hit on Frances and that she was curious, I’m not mad at her, him I am about to shoot dead.”
In addition to this, Courtney claimed that Dave tried to have sex with her as well, however, his real obsession was towards his bandmate Kurt Cobain rather than her. While the accusations are mindblowing, especially coming from Love herself via social media posts, she later deleted every tweet despite stating that the claims come from reliable sources such as a driver who saw Dave and Frances together in the back seat.
Dave Grohl, on the other hand, only shared a subtle statement revealing that Courtney is once again trying to start a feud filled with hate via social media platforms, however, her accusations are far from the truth as well as being offensive. Since Love later deleted all of her posts, many fans believed she shared the tweets despite not knowing if they were true or not, therefore, it was Grohl who was right according to many fans.
Dave Grohl’s statement follows:
“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive, and absolutely untrue.”
While Courtney Love’s action took the feud into a totally different dimension since she involved her teenage daughter in the argument, both Dave Grohl and Love managed to put their vendetta aside during Nirvana induction ceremony to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 11, 2014, and the band’s fans saw the two hugging each other and putting their feud in the past.
