Courtney Love turned down Russell Brand

May 9 2014, 3:22am CDT | by

Courtney Love turned down a night with Russell Brand.

The 49-year-old rocker - who was famously married to late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain until his death in 1994 - has claimed she spurned the comedian's advances because of his "musky" stench.

Appearing on British talk show 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', which airs tonight (05.09.14), she recalled: "When we were friends, he tried to hit on me. He goes, 'I have had a lot of grand conversations, darling, but none of them have ended in an orgasm. Can we go in a room?'

"I said to him, 'Russell, you are too musky for me, man.' He is a little musky. We did yoga together and the musk was there."

While Courtney refused to be a notch on Russell's list of sexual conquests, the pair remain friendly and she even thinks of him as a British "national treasure".

The star added: "I do think he is a national treasure. God, I wish I was as good as him. He flirts with men openly too."

While the Hole singer wasn't won over by Russell, she has previously fallen for the charms of another British comedian, 'Alan Partridge' creator Steve Coogan, admitting she was smitten with him because of his portrayal of Factory Records boss Tony Wilson in 2002 movie '24 Hour Party People'.

Speaking some time after their fling, she has previously said: "All it was, was a couple of sh**s at the Sunset Marquis [hotel in Los Angeles,] and I did not know he was Alan Partridge.

"I thought he was Tony Wilson in '24 Hour Party People' - somebody I'd always had a daddy thing for. I had never seen 'Alan Partridge'. But I was in a band with people who did know about Alan Partridge, so I had to make a record with them constantly saying to me, 'Back of the net!' "

Russell, 39, was wed to 'Roar' hitmaker Katy Perry between 2010 and 2012, and is currently dating Jemima Khan.
