Courtney Love 'should be banned from Twitter' — Frances Bean Cobain
Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain is speaking out against her mother’s latest Twitter comments, saying, “Twitter should ban my mother.” This follows Love’s recent posts on her personal Twitter account alleging that former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl had a physical relationship with Frances Bean.
“While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn,” Frances Bean Cobain said in a statement issued Thursday. “I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I’m in a monogamous relationship and very happy.”
Grohl, through his spokesman, said, “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accustions are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
Love has a history of posting provocative statements over the Internet and via Twitter but has laid relatively low since paying out more than $400,000 last year in what was considered the first Twitter defamation settlement for derogatory things she wrote about fashion designer Dawn Simonrangkir.
