It appears that Courtney Love is on the war path against FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl and NINE INCH NAILS founder Trent Reznor. In a (what appears to be now deleted) post shared on her Instagram yesterday (June 13th), Love included video excerpts which allege that both FOO FIGHTERS and NINE INCH NAILS have both taken thinly veiled shots at her in past music videos.
Courtney also individually attacked the frontmen for both bands, claiming that she intends to attempt to invalidate a previous arrangement the group had in regards to the royalties and profits generated by her late husband, Kurt Cobain, and NIRVANA.
Love has previously engaged in legal battles over NIRVANA band rights with Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic, however appeared to have reconciled with the pair by 2014, having embraced Grohl during NIRVANA’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
She claims that the aforementioned arrangement consisted of a document she signed years ago which saw NIRVANA members Grohl and bassist Novoselic continue to receive money from the band along with her descendants (Love and Cobain‘s daughter Frances Bean Cobain).
As for Reznor, Love made claims that she witnessed the NINE INCH NAILS frontman showing abusive behavior to underage fans in the past.
Her entire post reads as follows:
“Here’s a few receipts from some mega aggressions I’ve had to deal with, make myself small for, stop righteous lawsuits over, (“we are not doormats“ my sponsor always quotes to me) due to male privilege in all its vile toxicity. When @sharonstone was asked if she had any #metoo’s, she just laughed. ????????♀️. We only get 1 right?
I’ve had enough of this ????from these clowns leaning into my being scapegoated for breathing, for my husband’s death, for my “overt“ sexuality, because I’m an addict, etc, and a WOMAN, for over 27 years.
3 months before I left LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave [Grohl] (and Krist [Novoselic]) my descendants money in perpetuity. I was so broken. So scarred, so exhausted by him, I just fucking signed it. But it’s a lie. So I’m unsigning it.
Because it’s nonsense. The chaos and fury over Kurt’s death being directed at me, deflected by Dave, while he enriched and continues to enrich himself, gorging on Kurt’s fortune and Kurt’s goodwill. 27! Years!!! I’ve had enough.
I’m over being made small. And being “forced“ to “just drop it“ when it affects every generation of my descendants. Nicest guy in Rock ? No.
As for Reznor, At least? HE’S talented but still a creep. I’ve never seen so much systemic abuse of kids, girls as young as 12, by him and his crew, we all (the members of Hole) witnessed it. So while these two jack asses are not my #metoo’s because I’m saving my 1 up (because we only get 1) they’re darn close.
#fuckoff @treznor @nineinchnails @foofighters I really hope my example of standing up to them, putting a stop to them, will prevent any other women (or men) from this soul shattering level of personal and cultural abuse in future . Sexually, spiritually, financially.. #metoo #me3 #me88 etc etc ad nauseam. ????????????????#blessed? Yeah to be breathing long enough to tell the tale. I’m cramming as much into every song as I can. ☸️???????? Nam myoho renge kyo. “We are not doormats“
