Courtney Love Accuses Trent Reznor of "Systemic Abuse" of "Girls as Young as 12 "
She's also blasted Dave Grohl over an apparent Nirvana royalties dispute in a now-deleted Instagram post
Published Jun 14, 2021Courtney Love has come forward with some incredibly explosive claims, pointing to a Nirvana royalties dispute with Dave Grohl while also accusing Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor of "systemic abuse" against "girls as young as 12."
Love made the allegations in an Instagram post last night (June 13), though she soon deleted the post. However, it was online long enough for many followers to capture multiple screengrabs, which are now spreading across the internet.
With Love opening up about her experiences during the #MeToo movement, she came forward with especially damning claims against Reznor, accusing the NIN leader of abuse against young girls.
Of Reznor, Love wrote, "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."
As Love explained, her post came in efforts to address the following: "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?"
She continued: "I've had enough of this [Poo emoji] 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."
Turning her frustrations squarely on Grohl, Love wrote:
Three 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.
She went on to write that "I'm over being made small" while Grohl has been falsely labelled the "nicest guy in rock."
UPDATE (6/15, 1 p.m. ET): Love has now issued an apology for her post. You can read it in full here.
As of press time, neither Grohl nor Reznor has replied to Love post, which you can see for yourself below.
