British funnyman STEVE COOGAN is taking swift legal advice after he was accused of providing OWEN WILSON with the hard drugs that sent the actor spiralling to an all-time low. Wilson was admitted to hospital on Sunday (26Aug07) after his brother Andrew discovered the actor had tried to take his life.

The Wedding Crashers star is now recovering from the confirmed suicide bid at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as speculation about his mental state circulates through the world's media. And now Coogan has been dragged into the controversy after Fox News claimed friends of Wilson's were blaming the actor's Night At The Museum co-star for getting him into drugs.

The news report features a quote from Courtney Love, who reportedly dated Coogan. She says, "I tried to warn Owen... I hope from the bottom of my heart that Owen stays the hell away from that guy." But Coogan insists he's innocent to the charges he aided Wilson's decline, stating, "These accusations are unfounded, unhelpful and hurtful to all concerned." The Brit adds, "We are taking legal advice."
