Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, is denying her mother's Twitter rant that claims Dave Grohl hit on her and is calling for the site to ban the Hole singer.

On Tuesday, Love tweeted from her private account: "I hear from frannies roomate that @DaveGrohl hit on frances and that she was curious, I'm not mad at her, him I am about to shoot dead." (Gawker posted a screenshot here.)

Cobain, 19, denied that she was hit on by her dad's former bandmate, with whom Love has been feuding since Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994.

"While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn," Cobain said in a statement obtained by Rolling Stone.  "I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother."

Grohl also chimed in with a statement, saying, "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."

This isn't the first time Love has made controversial remarks on Twitter. Last year, in what was considered the first Twitter lawsuit, she paid $400,000 in a defamation settlement for derogatory comments she tweeted about fashion designer Dawn Simonrangkir.
