Courtney Love 'dating younger man'
Courtney Love is rumoured to be romancing a writer-and-director who is 15 years her junior.
The 51-year-old rocker is apparently in a realtionship with Nicholas Jarecki, 36, who is best known for his work on the 2012 Richard Gere movie Arbitrage.
"Courtney and Nick were introduced through mutual friends three months ago and immediately hit it off," an insider told New York Post. "They have been dating."
According to another source, both Courtney and Nicholas use the dating app Raya. It's become known as the app single celebrities use to meet people, with various reports of A-listers having accounts.
The new couple are apparently already going to events together, and they were seen at a party laid on by Adam Sandler's production company Happy Madison in California earlier this month (Dec15). A number of big names were in attendance, including Demi Moore, Slash, Marilyn Manson, Miles Teller and Taylor Lautner.
"She was introducing him to everyone," a guest explained.
Courtney even took to the stage at the event, performing a rendition of Hole's song Violet alongside Adam. It was all caught on camera by Nicholas, who then posted the footage on his Instagram account alongside the caption: "these guys are amazing!"
“Nick’s really into her," the New York Post's source explained. "He thinks she is fun and unique. The age difference isn’t an issue at all.”
Courtney was married to Nirvana start Kurt Cobain until his death in 1994, and although she's had relationships since then none have stuck. Earlier this year (15) she admitted part of the reason for that was because what she had with Kurt was so special; something she spent a great deal of time thinking about when Montage of Heck, a movie about his life, was released.
"It f**ked me up," she told V magazine. "I remembered the sexual relationship, which, as you know, is the core of any good marriage. It almost rendered other intimacies meaningless.
“I remembered how much I love him, and it made me really think about a few other people I don’t want to name, but a few other people I’ve been in love with. And should I have married them? The answer is actually no. Nobody else was as funny. Nobody was as compatible and got my jokes.
"(The film) made me really evaluate what, at the age of 50, I want out of a relationship. He’s a hard act to follow. I love him and I always will.”
