Courtney Love has issued an apology after calling out FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl and NINE INCH NAILS singer Trent Reznor. In an Instagram post, Love slammed her late husband’s Kurt Cobain‘s NIRVANA bandmate Dave Grohl and alleged she planned to dispute a rights arrangement with the surviving members of the band. She also took an aim at Reznor as well, calling him a “creep” and alleging she saw “systemic abuse of kids, girls as young as 12, by him and his crew.”
Now, via Instagram stories, Love apologized, writing: “I need to apologize for my recent post. It was insensitive and it was wrong. 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. I will do better.”
Her previous 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 Sharon Stone was asked if she had any #metoo’s, she just laughed. We only get 1 right? I’ve had enough of this [poop 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.
“Three months before I left LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave [Grohl] (and Krist [Novoselic]) my descendants money in perpetuity,” she continued. “I was so broken. So scarred, so exhausted by him, I just f*cking 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 [Trent] 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 as—es are not my #metoo’s because I’m saving my 1 up (because we only get 1) they’re darn close.
“#f*ckoff Trent Reznor, NINE INCH NAILS, FOO FIGHTERS, 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’”
