NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 10: Courtney Love speaks onstage at the 29th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on April 10, 2014 in New York City.

Courtney Love and Dave Grohl seemed to have an adversarial relationship for years after Kurt Cobain’s death, although they seemed to mend fences at Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. But apparently, she still has a bone to pick with her late husband’s former bandmates, both Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

On Sunday (June 13) Courtney Love made an Instagram post blasting Grohl, Novolselic and Trent Reznor, and then deleted it, according to ThePRP. ThePRP captured a screenshot of Love’s post before she removed it. She seemed to suggest that both Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails had previously disparaged her. It included a screenshot of NIN’s video for “Starf—ers, Inc.” Many fans have long believed that Foo Fighters songs “I’ll Stick Around” and “Stacked Actors” are about Love.

Love’s post referenced #MeToo, the social movement against sexual abuse and sexual harassment, where people publicize allegations of sex crimes. Referring to Grohl and Reznor, she said, “these two jacka–es are not my #metoo’s… [but] they’re darn close.”

She described a document that she admits that she signed, which she claims “effectively gives Dave (and Krist) my descendants’ money in perpetuity.” Love indicated that she will be reneging on that agreement.

She called Reznor a “creep,” and claimed that she and other members of Hole witnessed his “systemic abuse of kids, girls as young as 12, by him and his crew.” Hole opened for Nine Inch Nails in the mid-’90s, during the peak of NIN’s popularity.

Here’s Love’s full post from Sunday, per ThePRP. We’ve censored the curses:

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?

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.

3 months before I left LA, I signed a document that effectively gives Dave (and Krist) my descendants 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.

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 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 a–es are not my #metoo’s because I’m saving my 1 up (because we only get 1) they’re darn close.

#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.’
