Neither British songstress Lily Allen nor American rocker Courtney Love are strangers to conflict, so when the two finally met, there were bound to be sparks of tension. Last week at the NME Shockwaves Awards, Love confronted Allen backstage over some of Allen’s recent Twitter postings about Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter that Love had with late husband Kurt Cobain.
The conversation reportedly became “really nasty, really aggressive and bitchy” according to backstage crew members, before the two were physically separated by their handlers. Allen reportedly left the scene with boyfriend Sam Cooper, to the shouts of Love calling her “little girl” and shouting “Welcome to the music industry.”
There was also a dispute over some Chanel dresses at the Brit Awards in London, prompting Allen to Tweet that “as a rule I don’t pick on crazy old ladies.” She did admit to telling Love to “shut up and stop spreading stupid rumors about me.”
A follower asked Allen if she really put her foot down over the Chanel dresses, a fashion label Allen endorses. Allen answered that she did no such thing and referred to Love as a “paranoid drug-addled lunatic” for thinking so.
