COURTNEY LOVE's boyfriend JIM BARBER promptly proposed to the rock chick - after hearing reports of her fling with RUSSELL CROWE.
According to sources, Barber became worried when he heard that his girlfriend once had an affair with the GLADIATOR star and offered to walk her down the aisle almost immediately afterwards. Love is now sporting an engagement ring and says the couple will tie the knot next spring (02). (RGS/TS/PDD)
