Far be it for Beware of the Blog to become the source for seedy Hollywood gossip, but the Guardian's confirmation of the coupling of Steve Coogan (star of Factory label honcho Tony Wilson's fantasy/biopic 24 Hour Party People, and the extreme genius Alan Partridge BBC series) with the former Mrs. Cobain is enough to turn our heads today. Courtney reports that a baby is on the way, as of posting, Coogan's management denies all. The couple are rumored to have had an affair for two weeks in July after meeting in a Hollywood hotel, and according to the article Love (who just re-entered rehab this week) alledgedly told friends "What does it make me look like that I have slept with Alan Partridge? Given the grade A stars I've dated it's embarrassing. I mean...Alan Partridge?" One can only guess that the wooing of the Widow Cobain included taking personal, large dinner plates to all-you-can-eat buffets, and a bedroom display of air bass guitar mime to Level 42 songs.
