Courtney Love Issues Apology for Blasting Dave Grohl and Accusing Trent Reznor of "Systemic Abuse"
Published Jun 15, 2021This weekend, Courtney Love came out with quite the damning claims against Dave Grohl while also accusing Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor. Not only did she blast Grohl over some supposed Nirvana royalties dispute, but she accused Reznor of "systemic abuse" against "girls as young as 12." Now Love has apologized.
Love made the pretty extreme allegations in an Instagram post on Sunday (June 14), and she eventually deleted the post. Now the Hole singer has once again taken to her Insta and posted an apology in her Stories.
"I need to apologize for my recent post. It was insensitive and it was wrong," Love wrote. "No matter how I feel, there are real people behind my words and I need to learn to be more responsible with my words. I am truly sorry for those I've hurt and I will do better."
You can see a screengrab of the post below.
As previously reported, Love wrote of Reznor: "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 for Grohl, she tore apart the perception that he's the "nicest guy in rock," and seemed to dig up some ill feelings about the way Nirvana ended.
"Three months before I left L.A., 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," she wrote.
"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."
Overall, Love said the post came as she tried to express her experiences during the #MeToo movement.
"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?" Love wrote in the original post.
"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."
