Courtney Love has slammed Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl saying that Kurt Cobain loathed him.

Cobain's ex-wife Love has been locked in a feud with Grohl since the release of Nirvana's box set 'With The Lights Out,' amid legal conflict in 2004.

Writing on her Myspace blog, Love said: As for that drummer, well he's hit on me so many times. He's just a very very conflicted guy about me, which is why he continually writes songs about me to hear he 'hates' me more than 'anyone else.'

It's been widely rumored that the song, 'Let It Die,' from Foo Fighters new album, 'Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace,' is about the fragility of Love and Cobain's relationship.

"Kurt loathed HIM more than anyone else (except a journalist). In his will he made a codicil that Grohl was no longer a member of Nirvana. I just ignored the guy and will continue to."

She continued: "Dave knows this, and he takes it out on me! Hey, it wasn't MY band and it wasn't MY idea! It's funny he 'hates' me since I don't think about him.

"He's just sub-mediocre kind of [guy] who does this 'nice guy' nonsense. There isn't a word he could he say that would ruffle my feathers, honestly. Anyway what a fun, fabulous, special evening!"

    i'm getting fed up of all the courtney love news. her band sucks, and i really wish she would stop shooting her mouth off. does it really matter if cobain didn't like grohl? no.

    Hey, it wasn't MY band...
    That's right, it wasnt your band Love. Thats why you dont deserve a penny or should have no opinion in anything Nirvana.

    I don't like Courteny spouting off like this either, but I don't see it has anything to do with what happened to Kurt. He killed himself, he was depressed, simple as.

    y is she saying something about Dave?? i was watching the 7 ages of Rock and Dave said that if he could change one thing in his life, he would wish Kurt was still alive. he goes out sayin somethin like that, and this is wat she says? i bet Dave would change somethin else 2, he'd wish Kurt and Courtney never met

    "In his will he made a codicil that Grohl was no longer a member of Nirvana." 1) Kurt did not have a will, Courtney and Frances Bean were the sole benificiaries of his estate. 2) In seperate interviews (Rolling Stone) both Kurt and Dave confirmed thier close friendship. 3) Dave has writen several songs that seem to be or are about Kurt being his "hero". 4) Dave was a member of nirvana even after Kurt was killed. Dave and Chris played one show together after Kurts death. 5) Courtney is crazy. 6) Courtney is crazy. 7) Courtney is crazy.

    +1million to the bixter. All too true. I think people saying Nirvana are over-rated are missing the picture. Sure Kurt couldn't shred and what not, but his lyrics, Chris's bass lines, and Dave's great understanding of the drums changed almost an entire generation. If that's not worthy of praise, I don't know what is. BTW, when i say changed an entire generation, I mean for the better, with stuff called music. Sorry, majority of the new music today that is shit, you just plain suck and people are idiots to buy your "music" (basically aimed at the emo crowd, rap, and stuff that doesn't deserve the label "music")

    She's said the he loathed Dave before...and she's saying it again now. Why is she repeating herself on a subject she claims to not think about??? Why is she the only one speaking about about Dave Grohl? I don't know all the songs that are about her or not (I'm pretty sure "I'll Stick Around" and "Stacked Actors" are about her), but I guess she should make a song about him, as opposed to shooting off her opinion (which nobody seems to take in a serious context at all anymore). I guess you would need to be able to make good music for a song like that...Kurt's gone..where's Billy Corgan's phone number again???
    gottaloveDG
    oh for god's sake can somebody please shut her up? i mean i actually started to think SHE was the reason Kurt was depressed and commited suicide. i was ignoring her bullshit at the begining because she lost her husband but that's enough BITCH! just accept the fact that Dave is a great man in every way and move on. if you can't, just kill yourself so the world won't hear your ****in shits.

    NO ITS NOT. Its actually about how people throw their lives away, and people being sorry for them. Dave actually says that it wasnt about kurt and courtney in this clip.
    watch from 30 to 40 You guys have really gotta start getting the facts straight :/

    The media loves Courtney, cuz she's interesting, has shit-just-got-real honesty, doesn't-gives-****-what-you-think-attitude, if the media doesn't want to hear what she's yapping about, they wound publish squat.

    It's a pointless argument. Dave Grohl is one hell of a songwriter/musician. Who would have thought back in '91 that weird drummer had all that talent waiting to come out? Anyways, the one good record Courtney came out with Kurt co-wrote most of the material on it. After we was gone so was her career. And her meaning in life. She WAS Kurt Cobains wife. Now she's nothing more than a drugged up widow.

    Has she finally and completely lost her mind? On the other hand, did she ever really have one to begin with... Just plain stupid.

    say, I think Courtney Love should get the Lamest Bitch of the Year award this year. And erm next year. And so forth and so on.

    Shes only saying this because theres no one to prove her wrong. Sure, she sounds just plain stupid, but we don't know if its true or not. How does she know that he didn't hate her?

    All i can say is "Media Whore". All Courtney Love (ironic name...) seems to do is to slate as many people as she can, and spout as much crap about Kurt Cobain as physically possible. So because she dislikes Dave Grohl, shes trying to delude everyone into thinking that her dead husband hated him as well? Although, obviously secretly, seeing as nobody heard about this "minor" detail until 2008. Well, thanks for the 14 year gap Courtney. Shes trying to use the fact people take Cobain's words (allegedelly) for gold, to turn her own petty fights into things people give a **** about. All I can say is, Dave Grohl isn't called the Nicest Man In Rock for nothing. He actually cares, and he's got a lot of resepect. I think ranting about something thats impossible to prove turns a lot of people against you...hence, why people really don't give a shit about Courtney and appreciate Dave for the man he is: Respectable and talented.

    If Kurt loathed Grohl like *IT* says then why was he at their wedding when they got married hmmmmm???
    lespauldillon
    she reminds me of rosie o' donnal er however you spell it. she just runs her mouth about shit and just wants the attention. i honestly dont think kurt would loathe someone in his own band, sure everybody fights in bands, but that doesnt make any sense that he would hate dave. and in the time magazine based book they wrote about kurt, it said somewhere in there that his bandmates were the closest people he had, his best friends. so.. kudos to courtney, shes just ****in faggoty dude.

    Courtney, you're so full of it. Dave never hit on you. Krist and Dave just plain don't like you.Never did, never will. They loved Kurt. Get help, move on, get over it.
    giginthesky
    She should just leave Dave Grohl alone. Dude is minding his own, making music, having fun and is obviously on with his life, and HIS band is good, so she should just shut the f**K up and "Let it die".

    It makes perfect sense that they got married then, right?
    RockDragon
    So Kurt hated Dave. Couldn't have anything to do with the fact that Dave actually had any talent could it? Anyways as has been said, Courtney has no place to comment on stuff like this. It would be like if Maureen Plant came out and said that Bonham hated Robert Plant lol.

    "It's funny he 'hates' me since I don't think about him." Then why do you mention him in EVERY interview you do, and he doesn't talk about you?
    LittleJeanie
    Wow, it is so awful and hurtful to read all of these hateful comments. I feel that if any of you loved and understood Kurt Cobain you would realise that trashing the mother of his child, the woman that he loved and chose to marry, would hurt Kurt so much. Kurt loved Courtney for all the reasons you all seem to hate her. he loved her loud mouthed, hysterical, in your face, funny, wild self. She was his choice.He loved her with all her faults, unconditionally, and she loved him unconditionally. I loved Kurt and Courtney and I still do, for their charm, brilliance and the fact that they both are and were just themselves, never cencored. Rest In Peace dear friend, love, Jeanie

    Courtney is still that sad little girl who wasn't accepted by the cool kids at school, so she dyed her hair blue, bought a pack of cigarettes and started hating anyone w/ friends or a life. Her disdain for Dave comes from the fact that he's the complete opposite...nice guy, funny, adored by millions. She's a joke.
    nds711d
    Dave and Krist should get all the money for that. not some drugged up ***** who killed the band's leader. i think we should unite in an Anti Courtney Love Group. whos with me?!

    Anyone else think Ms. Love is a tad hypocritical?

    hmmm, drug addled, washed-up widow, or clean, generally known as a nice guy, still has a band ex-drummer? I know who I'd take more seriously...
