In a series of private tweets on Tuesday, Courtney Love reportedly accused Dave Grohl, 43, of trying to seduce her 19-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Today, Frances is clearing up the rumors.
In a statement, Frances writes, "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 relationship and very happy ... Twitter should ban my mother."
Likewise, Dave, a former bandmate of Frances' late father Kurt Cobain, released a statement to Rolling Stone yesterday, saying, "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant ... These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."
Courtney has had a contentious relationship with the Foo Fighters lead vocalist for quite some time. During a concert in November, the Hole singer lead the crowd in a chant of "the Foo Fighters are gay." She went on to say "I don't care what you listen to at home, but if a guy takes money off my kid's table, f**k him."
