Courtney Love, who is now 46 and out of excuses to do this kind of thing, carjacked photographer David LaChapelle’s SUV from New York’s SoHo House on Monday night. She sped off to director Brett Ratner’s house, promising to return and collect LaChapelle, but she ended up hanging out at Ratner’s till near dawn while the “fuming” LaChapelle had no idea where his car was.
According to Page Six‘s source, “LaChapelle was freaking out, saying Courtney had taken his car. He was frantically trying to reach her and his driver on the phone to find out where the hell they were.” Apparently “the fun started” when Love and LaChapelle were at SoHo House, devising ways to get Ratner to come meet them. Presumably the conversation went something like this:
LaChapelle: LOL, maybe we should go kidnap him in my car!
Love: (slips away to the parking lot)
I feel for David LaChapelle in this situation — it sucks to get played by a friend! — but he was really asking for it, allowing Courtney Love to go anywhere near his vehicle. Plus, aren’t you people too old to be coming up with wacky schemes to force your friend to come out drinking with you?
The story was confirmed by a SoHo House rep and a “sleepy” Ratner. No word on the current whereabouts of David LaChapelle’s car.
