Courtney Love Points Fingers Regarding Owen Wilson’s Downward Spiral

August 29th, 2007 // 6 Comments


Courtney Love, who dated British comedic actor, Steve Coogan, is blaming her ex-boyfriend for leading Owen Wilson down a path of drugs and self-destruction. She is claiming that Coogan, a close friend of Wilson’s, encouraged Owen’s hard-partying lifestyle, which ultimately led to the actor’s recent attempt to take his own life. The two actors, Wilson and Coogan, were set to lend their comedic talents to Ben Stiller’s upcoming film project, “Tropic Thunder,” but in light of current circumstances, Owen is no longer scheduled to be a part of the film and is instead taking time out for his recovery. This is what Courtney had to say:

“Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t comment but I care too much about Owen.”

“I went through it with Steve,” said Love. “I tried to warn Owen. I tried to warn his friends.”

A rep for Steve Coogan denied Courtney’s accusations, even going so far as to insinuate that legal action may be taken against her for her statements about the situation. If she were smart, she simply would have coded it in a garbled message on her blog, which, it could be argued, doesn’t even make sense anyways.

    I might be inclined to believe Courtney on this one.

    Kurt Ka-BLAM didn’t die, he escaped from Courtney.

    Given the prominence of both drug abuse and suicide in Courtney’s own life, this may have been the ideal time for her to keep her damn mouth shut. Not that there’s ever a good time to hear from her. Stupid skank.

    I hate Courtney Love and despise her more every time she opens her mouth, but agree with her on this. And it’s not that Owen Wilson HAD it all, he still HAS it all. He’s just going to need some help and time to get his life back together. There’s nothing America loves more than a comeback story and Owen Wilson only has sympathy at this point.

    After all the speculation and finger pointing toward her when Kurt Cobain died, you’d think she would understand more than anyone how unfair it is.

    So thats why Owen’s nose looks weird, he’s Kurt after surgery.
