(Newser) – Mickey Rourke has been secretly romancing Courtney Love since the Golden Globes, though it didn't keep him from flirting with Daily Mirror bloggers, they reveal, at the Elle Style Awards afterparty. Love angrily texted Rourke from across the table as the randy Wrestler star slipped his arms around the pair. "The ladies love me and I love the ladies," he told them. "Courtney's great, but so are you two!"

"Rourke and Love have known each other for years—she’s stuck by him through the good times and the bad," an insider dishes. "Now he’s back on the Hollywood A-list. He’s gone up another notch in the desirability stakes." None of which kept him from manhandling the two young things and trying to extract their phone numbers.
