Love-Cobain-Grohl: The Family that Tweets Together...
Keeping up with the public saga of Courtney, Frances Bean, and Dave

So, in case you were wondering, the chronology of the latest public flare up between Courtney Love, her daughter Frances Bean Cobain, and Dave Grohl, former drummer of Nirvana (led by Courtney's deceased husband/Frances's deceased father Kurt Cobain, who died 18 years ago last week, by the way...) goes like this:
Last Tuesday, Courtney went on her "private" Twitter feed, @cbabymichelle and wrote that she'd heard from her daughter's roommate (as well as other "reliable sources," including Frances's driver) that Grohl, 4x, was either hitting on Frances, or had slept with her, or, presumably, both. She went on to accuse of Grohl of being "sexually obsessed" with Kurt Cobain and of trying to have sex with Courtney "a lot" in the past. She also threatened to shoot and kill Grohl.
Then, on Wednesday, Grohl's spokesman denied her accusations thus:
"Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."
Come Thursday, Courtney refuted Grohl's refutation, and again accused him of "raping" Cobain's memory by hitting on his "only daughter" (and for having allowed the use of the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to appear in the recent film The Muppets).
Later that day, things got interesting when Frances Bean Cobain issued the following statement:
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.
Whereupon, on Saturday, Love tweeted this, on her public Twitter feed, @courtney:
"Bean, sorry I believed the gossip.. Mommy loves you"
And that was that. Nice to see Twitter keeping families together in the bright glare of the spotlight.
We hope you had a nice weekend.
