Courtney Love Apologizes to Daughter Frances Bean — on Twitter
We bet Courtney Love is fun at parties.
In the last month alone, she’s said the Muppets “raped” the memory of her late husband Kurt Cobain, then she called out ‘The Muppets’ co-writer and star Jason Segel on her Twitter feed, and finally she used the same medium to publicly accuse Cobain’s former Nirvana bandmate Dave Grohl of hitting on her 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean.
Love doesn’t apologize for much, but now she’s at least backtracking on those last comments.
After Love lit into Grohl, her words made the normally publicity-shy Frances speak out, saying in a statement on Thursday:
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.
Grohl also had a say: “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.”
In case Frances referring to Courtney as her “biological mother” (ouch) didn’t make it perfectly clear already, the two have had a rather rocky relationship for years. Love lost custody of her daughter at least once before she was 18 because of Courtney’s mental instability issues (or drugs, or both — take your pick).
But sometimes a mother’s love peeks through the crazy, because Love did issue an apology to Frances. Of course it’s a bit odd that she used Twitter to do it, but since that’s where she made the initial accusations, maybe it makes sense in a twisted sort of way.
On Saturday, Love tweeted:
Bean, sorry I believed the gossip.. Mommy loves you

Seems to us the one she really owed an apology to was Grohl for essentially accusing him of being a lech and a pervert, but hey, when it comes to Courtney Love, sometimes you just take any mea culpa you can get.
