To be honest, I was going to lay off of Courtney Love when news first surfaced last week that the ex-Hole singer would be headed back to rehab for a long-term drug treatment program at a chemical dependency center. I mean, is that even news anymore? It’s sort of like hearing that the Gallagher brothers are fighting or that the price of gas is going up. Everyone’s sick of hearing about it, and I, for one, am sick of writing about it. I feel bad for the lady, but I mean, if she can’t get her shit together for the sake of her twelve-year-old child who was destined to have some serious behavioral issues from the get go, then F her, right?
But… over the weekend, news surfaced in the UK tabloid News Of The World that Love is pregnant with actor Steve Coogan’s child. Love reportedly told the tabloid, “Yes, I am pregnant with Steve’s baby,” but refused further comment.
Love and Coogan, who both have a documented history of drug abuse, apparently met while staying at the same LA hotel and had a two-week drug and sex-a-thon. If this story turns out to be true and Love then went on to walk around doing drugs with a baby in her womb, then it doesn’t matter how “serious, sincere or tenacious” she seems to be about kicking the habit, as her lawyer told the press. A slap on the wrist isn’t going to cut it this time. Bad press is better than no press at all? Not this time, Courtney.
