Love continues her attack on Steve Coogan

As Owen Wilson’s recovery from his tragic suicide attempt earlier this week continues in a Beverly Hills hospital, the story moves to Courtney Love’s house.

The vocal rocker spoke to cameras outside her home, continuing to put blame on British actor/comedian Steve Coogan, a man she had a fling with in 2006.

“Hopefully, the guy leaves us alone in this town and goes back to Brighton (England) or wherever the hell he’s from and just maybe stays there,” she said.

Love alleged that Coogan was a negative influence over Owen Wilson.

“I tried to warn different friends of Owen,” she said.

“He has been spending time with Owen Wilson?” a reporter asked about Coogan.

“From what I understand, yeah,” Love replied, “and it makes me really sad.”

When asked about the allegations by Love, while in Hawaii, Coogan, had little to say.

“Where are you from?” Coogan asked the reporter.

“I’m from Maui, Hawaii,” the reporter replied.

“Hey, listen, have a good day. I’m with my family,” Coogan said, refusing to respond to Love’s statements as he headed back to L.A. after wrapping up his role in Ben Stiller’s “Tropic Thunder,” a film Wilson had to drop out of.

Coogan did however open up to “Access Hollywood” on Wednesday.

“My thoughts are with my friend Owen at this difficult time, but I do want to set the record straight and say that the allegations ... are completely and utterly false,” he said.

Meanwhile, as previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the city of Santa Monica has refused all media requests for a copy of the 911 call regarding Owen Wilson citing the actor’s privacy rights. They stated: “No person should have to worry about whether placing a call for Emergency Assistance will automatically make his or her medical request open to public review.”

In related news, a source close to Wilson revealed to “Access” that Wilson did not overdose as other outlets have reported. While Owen did slit his wrists, his stomach was never pumped at the hospital. There were no drugs in his system, the source claims, other than the antidepressants he was taking at the time.
