Yup, it's all Alan Partridges' fault. At least according to Courtney Love (who could doubt her?), who, if you remember, was going around saying she was pregnant with Steve Coogans' baby a couple years back.
According to the New York Post: "Wilson was hooked on heroin and cocaine, struggling with depression and hanging out with the wrong crowd in the months before his attempted suicide, according to a bombshell new report."
"Wilson's drug use was so frequent, it was even the cause of his Memorial Day breakup with Kate Hudson."
"And his friends are placing the blame squarely on Wilson's newfound best buddy, British actor Steve Coogan, with whom he starred in several films, according to exclusive interviews in US Weekly magazine."
"I went through it with Steve," Coogan's former girlfriend, rocker Courtney Love, told US."
"I was just out of rehab, and he was right there with the drugs. I tried to warn Owen. I tried to warn his friends. I hope from the bottom of my heart that Owen stays the hell away from that guy."
For his part, a spokeswoman for Coogan said: “These accusations are unfounded, unhelpful and hurtful to all concerned.”
She added: “We are taking legal advice.”

"The Persuaders! is a 1971 crime series, produced by ITC for initial broadcast on ITV and ABC. It has been called "the last major entry in the cycle of adventure series that had begun eleven years earlier with Danger Man in 1960", as well as "the most ambitious and most expensive of Sir Lew Grade's international action adventure series".
It starred Tony Curtis, as Danny Wilde, and Roger Moore, as Lord Brett Sinclair,
two international playboys. Much of the humor of the show derived from
playful observations about the differences between American and British
customs. The show ended after one season because it failed on US

Link. "Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) was arrested in June at a Minnesota airport by a plainclothes police officer investigating lewd conduct complaints in a men’s public restroom, according to an arrest report obtained by Roll Call Monday afternoon."
"Craig’s arrest occurred just after noon on June 11 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. On Aug. 8, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in the Hennepin County District Court. He paid more than $500 in fines and fees, and a 10-day jail sentence was stayed. He also was given one year of probation with the court that began on Aug. 8."
"A spokesman for Craig described the incident as a “he said/he said misunderstanding,” and said the office would release a fuller statement later Monday afternoon."
"After he was arrested, Craig, who is married, was taken to the Airport Police Operations Center to be interviewed about the lewd conduct incident, according to the police report. At one point during the interview, Craig handed the plainclothes sergeant who arrested him a business card that identified him as a U.S. Senator and said, “What do you think about that?” the report states."
"Craig was detained for approximately 45 minutes, interviewed, photographed, fingerprinted and released, and police prepared a formal complaint for interference with privacy and disorderly conduct." via Roll Call
