While Courtney was speaking with The New York Post, she congratulated her old boyfriend on his engagement, trouble is – he hadn’t even announced it yet himself.
The Post writes that Norton proposed to Robertson while in India three weeks ago, one of the only press reports of their decision to tie the knot. The story reports the engagement as a matter of fact, featuring a quote from Norton’s former girlfriend, Courtney Love, about her reaction to the news.
“Wow, it’s about time. He’s 41, they’ve been together for six years,” Love said. “He needs to have babies. I wonder what kind of ring he got her? He bought me a ruby.”
Last year, Love, who dated Norton in the late 90’s, said that he has helped serve as an intermediary between herself and daughter Frances Bean, with whom she was barred from communicating.
Robertson is a prominent comedy producer, teaming with Judd Apatow on his acclaimed comedies, including “Knocked Up,” “Superbad” and “Pineapple Express.”
Norton was recently announced as a cast member in Wes Anderson’s next film, “Moon Rise Kingdom.”
“He bought me a ruby.” Hmm, sounds like someone still misses him!
When E! asked Norton’s publicist about the engagement, the answer was “We don’t have any information on his private life and don’t comment on it,” his publicist told E! News when asked whether Norton and Robertson, a film producer, are getting ready to tie the knot.
