Oh dear, Courtney Love in embarrassing mum alert phase two! Not content with previously taking to Twitter to accuse her daughter Frances Bean of having sex with her dad Kurt Cobain's former Nirvana
band-mate Dave Grohl, the no-holds-barred mom has now tweeted that she is sorry
for 'believing the gossip'.
Originally, Courtney took to the social networking site and claimed that 19-year-old Frances had been seduced by the Foo Fighters' Grohl, something both he and Frances strenuously denied. Courtney wrote: "I hear from Frannies roommate that @davegrohl hit on Frances, and that she was curious, I'm not mad at her, him I am about to shoot dead."
Frances was SO outraged by the tweet she called for Twitter to BAN her motormouth mommy, releasing a statement saying:
"While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. 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 - who is 24 years older than Frances - released his own statement saying the claims were 'absolutely untrue', tweeting: "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."
Courtney and Frances' mother-daughter relationship has always been tempestuous - Frances' gran and aunt were made her temporary co-guardians in 2009, and a judge reportedly placed a temporary restraining order on Courtney, banning her from having any direct or indirect contact with Frances.
Obviously regretting her original online outburst, Courtney posted another message apologising to her daughter, and telling her she loves her, writing:
"Bean, sorry I believed the gossip. Mommy loves you."
Have your parents ever embarrassed you to this scale? (Unlikely!)
Madge certainly looks good for 52 but daughter Lourdes recently questioned her need to flaunt her figure. Madonna's revealing outfit and red carpet bottom baring at the recent Vanity Fair Oscars party left Lola red-faced and she was heard pleading: "Mum, do you have to?", and saying, "But you tell me to behave like a grown-up."</p>
- Courtney Love
When Frances Bean Cobain opted to live with her grandmother, she probably thought her red-faced days were behind her. But Courtney caused more embarrassment by lashing out at her daughter via Facebook, calling her "deceptive and deluded" and saying: "Any kid of mine who pulls this s**t has lost her position". No wonder grandma's house was more appealing.</p>
- David Hasselhoff
As a one-time America's Got Talent judge, The Hoff delighted viewers with his crazy antics. But his drinking habit was not so amusing for daughter. Eventually young Taylor filmed her father lying shirtless and drunk on the floor of a hotel room, trying (and failing) to eat a cheeseburger. Hasselhoff still occasionally makes 'booze binge' headlines.</p>
- Katie Price
Katie Price regularly puts her children in the spotlight, using both Junior and Princess Tiaamii to model her range of equestrian gear, and posting a picture of her daughter wearing false eyelashes on Twitter. Add to that the revealing outfits, boozy nights out and public spats with Peter Andre and it's easy to see why she's been voted the nation's most embarrassing parent in a TV poll.</p>
- Michael Lohan
As if Lindsay Lohan didn't have enough on her plate, dad Michael insisted on speaking publicly about her troubles. After storming home with cops in tow claiming Li-Lo was "not in the right frame of mind" to look after 16-year-old sister Ali, he went on to release private, taped phone conversations with Lindsay to the media. He's lucky she has since forgiven him.</p>
- Pamela Anderson
Stripping down to a tiny bikini on Ellen, Pamela Anderson revealed how she warned her two boys about the infamous Tommy Lee sex tape, saying: "I just said, 'Look, Mommy and Daddy were massively in love, we videotaped everything… and you're probably going to hear about something at school." We can almost hear their groans from here.</p>
- Richard and Judy
Where do we start with these two? Last year, the much-loved TV presenters topped a poll of the most embarrassing parents. Why? Well, Mr Madeley's shop-lifting past and Judy's bra-exposing wardrobe malfunction at a 2001 awards ceremony might explain it… and then there was Richard's notoriously cringe-worthy Ali G impression. Need we say more?</p>
- Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne
Kelly and Jack Osbourne boast not one but two embarrassing parents. In her autobiography, Kelly describes how Ozzy once dressed as a werewolf and locked her pals in a shed. But the embarrassment doesn't end there because when Sharon recently called Susan Boyle "a hairy a**ehole", Kelly was forced to try and defend her loud-mouthed mum on Twitter.</p>
- Charlie Sheen
Following months of booze and drugs binges Charlie Sheen sobered up only to move two women into his home and give a series of bizarre TV interviews. On his philosophy of fatherhood, he said: "Lead by example and teach your kids right and wrong. If my right and wrong is a little bit different than anybody else, then my kids will be different too."</p>
