Frances Bean Cobain: Twitter should ban my mom

Frances Bean Cobain is not pleased with her mother Courtney Love's reported recent tweets, and she's even asked Twitter to ban her from the social networking site.

Frances, 19, made the suggestion after Love touched off a firestorm via Twitter this week by suggesting that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl had made sexual advances toward her daughter, as Gawker reports.

Grohl is a former drummer for Nirvana, the legendary grunge band that Love's late husband - and Frances' father - Kurt Cobain fronted.

Through her locked personal account, Love reportedly claimed in a series of tweets that Grohl had seduced the 19-year-old, something he has denied.

“Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant," he said to CNN in a statement. "These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”

Frances, too, blew her mother’s allegations off, concluding in a statement to CNN, "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.”

    This is old. Who here is in their mid 30s like I am, was a Nirvana fan, and KNEW any kids coming out of these grunge bands would be messed up today or have moms or dads still on heroin? It isn't a surprise people. And we don't want to hear Kurt's voice from Puddle of Mudd. Grunge is dead. Layne died too. Let's move on.

    New Nirvana. They can do it again, this time with Wesley Scantlin who is the lead singer with Puddle of Mudd. Wesley has the same harmonics, pitch and enunciation as Kurt Cobain. There is nobody more similar in sound and style than that of Scantlin. Nirvana can keep all things the same......stay original in depth.....bring in Scantlin and continue on with Nirvana to the top of seattle sound. Nirvana doesnt have to help those with suicidal thoughts think that if they carry through with it (suicide) that their actions will end a good thing they were once a part of. Screw that. Nirvana had real talent that went further than Cobain. It was the enigma of the band and the spirit within. Cobain was awesome and the front-man, but he was a coward none-the-less. Suicide is cowardly. And nothing should end because of it. "You dont wanna be here, fine, we will continue without you." Listen to the song Blurry by Puddle of Mudd. Listen to his voice. He can project the same sound from the back of the throat, back of the nose, as Cobain did. New Nirvana come back. Be Nirvana.

    Who cares whats going on or who said what. What matters, are the things that I can control: my job, my family and friends, and my talents. Everything else is something beyond me. We all can possibly live 80 years. Why waste it on someone elses account.

    Is there any reason why the Marquee Blog can't post updated photos of Francis? Clearly she doesn't look like that photo anymore and you're confusing some of the people posting.

      If you were around indeed,you took the easy way out left your little girl to an addicted mom and your sick friends.You guys kill me ,does anyone of you have any idea what it's like to have you husband take his own life?If Courtney wasn't strong she could have done the same thing that coward did.I hope her daughter's okay and if Dave Grohl did do what he's been accused of sooner or later he'll get what's coming to him.

    You people are disgusting. Guess all have forgotten he was a heroin user plus anything else he could get his hands on long before she was brought into th addictive picture. If frances chooses to diss her mother that's fine at least her mother didn't take the cowards way out by killing herself like kurt did. she definately has psych issues and always will. Frances is a beautiful girl who does not look like her father. He was seedy and gross just like courtney

      He did heroin because he had a stomach illness that the doctors could not figure out, he was in pain all the time and they wouldn't give him morphine daily so he did heroin. Courtney got the heroin for him. She also tried to have him killed. She prolly stole all of his left over tapes and writings for her Hole lol and who kills themself with a shotgun ? Lol Think about it. Not sayin I'm right or your wrong cus who cares lol but this is what I've heard. Take care 🙂

    I too grew up with a mentally ill, alcoholic mother. I'm now 50 and she is 72. We do not speak and it's because she wants it that way. I've accepted it and have moved on. Frances seems to have grown up to be a decent person. This could have gone wrong in so many ways. Cudos to Frances! Why in the world would her mother make those accustions. David Grohl should file a defimation suit against that doped up has been tramp!!!

    It's one thing to rant and rave but when Courtney threatened Dave Grohl with violence is when she crossed the line. Her twitter accounts should be banned for inciting violence against another person.

      Why do you think he committed suicide? He had that harping in his ear constantly. I'm sure she toyed with his mind and emotions. He checked out and she got all his money. Truly sad even though I wasn't a fan of his music.
