In the past, Courtney Love has claimed that Gavin Rossdale slept with her while he was with Gwen Stefani, and that Dave Grohl banged Frances Bean because he was obsessed with Kurt Cobain. Also, she’s Courtney Love which in hindsight was all the background you needed here. Apologies. Via Starpulse:
The 49-year-old rocker – who was famously married to late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain until his death in 1994 – has claimed she spurned the comedian’s advances because of his “musky” stench.
Appearing on British talk show ‘Alan Carr: Chatty Man’, which airs tonight (05.09.14), she recalled: “When we were friends, he tried to hit on me. He goes, ‘I have had a lot of grand conversations, darling, but none of them have ended in an orgasm. Can we go in a room?’
“I said to him, ‘Russell, you are too musky for me, man.’ He is a little musky. We did yoga together and the musk was there.”
While Courtney refused to be a notch on Russell’s list of sexual conquests, the pair remain friendly and she even thinks of him as a British “national treasure”.
In fairness, Russell Brand is a known sex addict, and Courtney Love strikes me as the type of person who requires a wheelchair from time-to-time, so that side of the puzzle adds up. As for her turning him down, theoretically she is a human woman and therefore can go for years, if not decades, without sexual intercourse which is how we know they evolved from the camel. I’ve done the science.
