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.
Weird: the iPhone left in my yellow cab last night clearly belongs to @courtney (Courtney Love). Trying to return. Anyone? Courtney? — Frank Bruni (@FrankBruni) November 21, 2013
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.
