On Sunday June 13, Courtney Love posted and then deleted an Instagram post in which she lashed out at Dave Grohl over an apparent Nirvana-related royalty deal, poking fun at the former Nirvana drummer and current head of orchestra of the Foo Fighters and his familiar label as “the nicest guy in rock.”
In the same post, Love, the widow of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, also accused Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails of abuse.
ThePRP captured screenshots of Love’s post before it was deleted. The Hole singer’s cope began by suggesting that Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails had disparaged her likeness in music videos before. It included an image from “Starf — ers, Inc.” by NIN. video.
Love’s post included hashtags for #MeToo, the social movement against sexual abuse and sexual harassment where people post allegations of sex crimes. Referring to Grohl and Reznor, she said: “These two jack — es are not my #metoo because I am saving my 1… [but] they’re pretty damn close. “
She also stated that she “had had” enough of the “chaos and fury over Kurt’s death directed at me, hijacked by Dave, as he got richer and keeps getting richer, gorging himself on me. Kurt’s fortune and Kurt’s goodwill “.
Referring to a document she signed after she said “actually gives Dave [Grohl]”and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana” my descendants’ money in perpetuity, “Love said she would reconsider the deal.
Calling Reznor a “creep” elsewhere in the missive, she alleged that she and members of Hole witnessed the NIN figurehead’s “systemic abuse of children, girls as young as 12, by him. and his team “in the past.
Earlier this year, Love claimed she quit acting “after a bunch of #metoos.” Last month, she heavily slammed Hulu’s upcoming Pam & Tommy series in defense of her friend Pamela Anderson.
Read Sunday’s full Love post:
Here are some receipts from some of the mega assaults that I had to face, to make myself small, to stop the fair lawsuits (‘we are not doormats’, my sponsor always quotes me) because of the male privilege in all its vile toxicity. When we asked @sharonstone if she had any #metoo, she just laughed. We only have one, don’t we?
i have had enough of this [Pile of Poo emoji] of those clowns hunched over my scapegoat for my breathing, for my husband’s death, for my “open” sexuality, because I’m a drug addict, etc., and a WOMAN, for over 27 years.
3 months before leaving LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave [Grohl] (and Krist [Novoselic]) my descendants of money in perpetuity. I was so broken. So marked, so exhausted by him, I just got to sign him. But this is a lie. So I unsubscribe him.
Because it’s nonsense. The chaos and fury of Kurt’s death being directed at me, distracted by Dave, as he got richer and continues to get richer, gorging on Kurt’s fortune and Kurt’s goodwill. 27! Years !!! I had enough.
I’m done being little. And being “forced” to “drop everything” when it affects every generation of my descendants. The coolest 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 children, girls as young as 12, by him and his team, we’ve all witnessed it (the Hole members). So while these two jack a – es aren’t my #metoo because I’m saving my 1 (because we’re only getting 1), they’re pretty darn close.
#f — off @treznor @nineinchnails @foofighters I really hope my example of standing up to them, stopping them, will prevent any other woman (or man) from this upsetting level of personal and cultural abuse in the future . Sexually, spiritually, financially .. #metoo # me3 # me88 etc. etc. ad nauseam. #blessed? Yeah to breathe long enough to tell the story. I cram as much as possible into each song. Nam myoho renge kyo. “We are not doormats. “
