Courtney Love has retracted and apologized for her recent comments made about Dave Grohl and Trent Reznor.
In a statement shared via her Instagram stories and screenshot by Loudwire, Love wrote, “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.”
As previously reported, Love shared via Instagram a number of accusations against Grohl, Reznor and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. The post was deleted but not before being captured by ThePRP.
In the post, Love accuses both Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails of disparaging her in the past. She also said of Grohl and Reznor, “These two jacka–es are not my #metoo’s… [but] they’re darn close.”
Love would also detailed, “3 months before I left LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave (and Krist) my descendant’s money in perpetuity. I was so broken. So scarred, so exhausted by him, I just f—ing 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.”
Love would then write 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.”
She concluded, “#f—off @treznor @nineinchnails @foofighters 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.'”
