Jim Barber, the manager of Courtney Love, has branded a story about Courtney that ran in the UK press over the weekend as "crap".The story reports bizarre behavior by Courtney at the funeral of THE CLASH's Joe Strummer. Barber told Australia's Undercover News that "She was in fact at the funeral because, uh, she was friends with Joe Strummer and had worked with him in films. Funny how they leave that part out as well." The scandalous story published by English syndicator WENN claimed Courtney Love horrified the family and friends of Joe Strummer at his funeral by "throwing herself on the coffin." The story only uses quotes from unnamed sources and alleges Courtney was initially refused admission to the private crematorium. "Definitely crap," Barber told Undercover. The friendship of Courtney Love and Joe Strummer goes back to 1987 when the pair both starred in the movie "Straight To Hell". The movie is about a gang of bankrobbers with a suitcase of loot holding out in the desert. Love played Velma, Strummer played Simms.
