(UPDATE) New York Times writer Frank Bruni finds Courtney Love’s phone in a cab
New York can be very small, as New York Times op-ed columnist Frank Bruni discovered. Bruni found a cellphone in a cab, only to find that it belonged to none other than rocker Courtney Love. He took to Twitter to ask how he could get it back to her.
Love answered within minutes:
When asked how he knew it was really Love’s phone, Bruni gave his assistant credit.
Bruni’s assistant, Isabella Moschen, told NYMag that even though Love’s phone was locked, she could still see incoming texts. “First I saw that Stella Schnabel had just texted her,” said Moschen. “And then I noticed this name, Lo’renzo Hill-White, and I Googled him and he’s a celebrity stylist. Then there was Peri Lyons, the name sounded familiar to me, and I realized my uncle used to date her! She’s a psychic to the stars. I said to Frank, ‘It’s gotta be Courtney Love.’”
We hope Bruni pens a tell-all column, though he already told NYMag he probably won’t. Editor John Cook of Gawker made an offer for the iPhone.
Gawker would have been a better fit.
