Rumor Control: Late Night Love
One day after her bizarre appearance on "The Late Show" and her arrest for allegedly throwing a mic stand at a fan, the media began following Courtney Loveís every move. And Love didnít disappoint.

Now, "Extra" sets the record straight on Loveís latest wild adventure. Fact or fiction -- the rebel rocker on drugs? Her behavior certainly has been bizarre. Even on Thursday, Love appeared a little frazzled getting into her limo.
