Twitter: Courtney Love apologizes to Frances Bean Cobain
All’s fair in Love and Twitter? Frances Bean Cobain didn’t think so when her mother Courtney Love sent out a Twitter screed that accused Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, 43, of trying to seduce 19-year-old Frances Bean. Suffice it to say, the history between Grohl and his former Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain’s family is complicated, and Love has become fairly infamous for her sprawling, trouble-making Internet rants. Regardless, Love’s grunge-heiress daughter was quick to dismiss the tweets and suggested Twitter ban Love.
This weekend, Love tried to make amends with a short-and-sweet tweet: “Bean, sorry I believed the gossip.. Mommy loves you.”
At press time, Frances Bean had not made any follow-up remarks, and Grohl, who has two daughters with his wife of nine years, has wisely stayed completely out of the fracas.
What do you think, PopWatchers? Was Love’s apology tweet sufficient? Can it make up for the wrath she unleashed (most hilariously, upon a German student who just happens to have the Twitter handle @DaveGrohl)? Is Bean right: At least two lawsuits and a death threat later, should Twitter unfollow Love once and for all?
