Courtney Love turned down Russell Brand because he’s stinky

The ever-candid Courtney Love says she rejected Russell Brand’s come-ons for a very a specific reason.

Russell Brand may consider himself a regular Casanova, but he isn’t going to be having a shag with Courtney Love anytime soon. At least that’s what she says, according to Us Weekly.

In a recent guest appearance on the Alan Carr: Chatty Man show, the unpredictable rocker claimed that Brand made a pass at her, but she turned the comedian down cold because his odor was a bit too manly for her taste. The allegations are shocking, considering Brand’s ex-wife, Katy Perry, was so distraught after their break-up that the only thing that could comfort the pop star was Cheetos and booze.

“My favorite Russell Brand line was when we first were friends and he tried to hit on me but nothing ever happened,” said Love. “He goes, ‘I’ve had a lot of grand conversations, darling, but none of them have ever ended in orgasm. Can we go in your room?'”

Love said that after being propositioned by Brand, she said, “You’re too musky for me, man.” Ouch. She also admitted that the alleged offensive odor she experienced was during exercise, which doesn’t seem totally fair. “He’s a little musky. We did yoga together, and the musk was there,” Love said on the British talk show.

You can say a lot of things about Love, but the woman doesn’t beat around the bush. She’s also bold in her statements, which most of the time veer toward the outlandish. Love has drawn conclusions on famous unsolved mysteries such as the whereabouts of Malayasian Airlines flight 370.

Still, the allegation of Brand’s stench doesn’t bode well for the Get Him to the Greek actor, who previously told Jay Leno he is training to be a world-class Don Juan. “Mostly I’ve been devoting myself to single life so I can finally win that shagging Olympic medal,” he said. “I’m putting in the training.”

We’re willing to bet that Love didn’t smell like flowers during her Hole days, either. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, Courtney!
