Last night on her private Twitter account @cbabymichelle, Courtney Love accused 43-year-old Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of putting the moves on 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain, whom she claims went home with Grohl. "He had that romney rape thing about him," she mysteriously concludes about the "gross old man macking on Kurt Cobain's only child."
Update: Dave Grohl responds through his publicist: "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."
Update: Dave Grohl's publicist objects to the above update: "Hopefully people read that far down... thanks i guess?" To see how Steve wishes I wrote this post, please scroll to the bottom of the post.
Courtney has a longstanding beef with Grohl, whom she accuses of wasting Nirvana's money and riding Kurt Cobain's coattails. He also knew Frances when she was a baby. (Above: Nirvana, RuPaul, Love, and Bean at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards.) Courtney aired the story to @cbabymichelle's 795 followers last night, interspersed with rage tweets about Frances' boyfriend and rambling tweets about Buddhism. For the sake of clarity, we have arranged just the Grohl/Bean tweets into chronological order.

Update: Here is the update Dave Grohl publicist Steve Martin would like:
Well, what I want and what I think are realistic options are very different things.
What I want would be to have the headline changed to, say, "Crazy Woman Says Insane Shit No One In Their Right Mind Would Believe," and I would want to lose that photo too.
but back here in the real world, all i can say is Rolling Stone, for example, gave us the first sentence and a sub-head:
Courtney Love Accuses Dave Grohl of Hitting on Frances Bean Cobain
'These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue,' says Grohl
UPDATE: Dave Grohl has responded to Love's accusations in a statement: "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."
I don't know, "Crazy Woman Courtney Love" is kind of redundant.
