Frances Bean Cobain Wants Twitter To Ban Courtney Love

After her mother publicly accused Dave Grohl of "macking on Kurt Cobain’s only child.”

A few days ago, Courtney Love accused 43-year-old Dave Grohl of trying to sleep with her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Oh god, mum, could you be any more embarrassing? Courtney, as she is oft known to do, went on a 140-character-or-less rampage with all the typing finess of a teenager drunk on sherry, via her private Twitter account @cbabymichelle, which has 795 followers.

Her first Tweet explained that she had heard from Frances’ friend that Dave had tried to hit on her and that “I’m not mad at her, him I am about to shoot, dead.” Among other things, she claimed that “Dave tried to fuck me a lot and I always thought he had that romney (?) rape thing about him” and that he is a “gross old man macking on Kurt Cobain’s only child.” Dave’s publicist responded saying “unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”

Now Frances has stepped in herself and issued a statement, scolding her mother. “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.”

She also says “Twitter should ban my mother" (who, coincidentally, is looking more and more like an elf dressed as Joan Rivers dressed as a Real Doll each day — see below).

Is Frances Bean Cobain engaged?
