The 42-year-old reality star is in a wheelchair after breaking both feet while on holiday in Turkey – and denies rumours she is concealing surgery.
Now Dave Grohl has cemented his ‘nicest guy in rock’ reputation by sticking up for a bunch of teens in a David v Goliath battle with a countryside council. Officials in Cornwall Council banned young heavy metallers Black Leaves of Envy from playing in the garage of Andrew Plenty, dad to two of them. Plenty wrote to their hero Grohl, above, for help – and he responded with a lengthy open letter to the council on the Foo Fighters website.
He is known as the nicest man in rock - and now Dave Grohl has proved that once more by stepping in to support a teenage heavy metal band from Cornwall who were banned from playing due to noise complaints.
Foo Fighters have hit back at the split rumours that have been doing the rounds this week, sharing a brilliant video after claims that Dave Grohl could go solo.
Fresh off the back of Dave Grohl’s moving performance at Sunday night’s Oscars it has been reported that the rocker is set to go solo after a falling out with his bandmate. The 47-year-old is frontman of The Foo Fighters and although the band have insisted that they are on a hiatus an insider has revealed that Dave has his heart set on going solo, which has left drummer Taylor Hawkins unimpressed.

Titled ‘Saint Cecilia’, the group shared a heartfelt letter on their official website in which frontman Dave Grohl explains: “Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album.
While we’ve never PERSONALLY broken our leg (touch wood, rub a rabbit’s foot and all that), judging from our mum’s experience, we’re pretty sure many people wouldn’t exactly describe it as ‘beautiful’ or a ‘blessing’.
It was sadly confirmed last night that The Foo Fighters would no longer be headlining Glastonbury next weekend following frontman Dave Grohl’s rather unfortunate onstage mishap that saw the rocker badly break his leg. OUCH. Since this was announced, the Internet has been going into overdrive trying to guess who could possibly be replacing the iconic band at such short notice, and professional troll, but also rather nifty singer, James Blunt was on hand to cause an actual meltdown. Taking to his Twitter account, the 41 year old quipped: “Amazed and thrilled to get the call from @GlastoFest to headline in place of @foofighters.
