LATEST: Courtney Love has denied new reports she is dating British comedian Steve Coogan, insisting "he's not my boyfriend".
The pair were first romantically linked last year (05), when Love was quoted as saying she was pregnant by the AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS star, but both parties later dismissed the story.
And the former Hole frontwoman insists she was misquoted again this weekend (11-12MAR06), when she admitted the pair are "still really close".
She says, "We're friends and he's funny as f**k and very cool. But he's not my boyfriend and if he was I sure as hell would never talk about it.
"My private life is my private life. I'll say one thing. I'm f**king sick of f**king tabloids, I don't talk to them and I don't like them."
