Nothing like a rumor to get in the way of shopping.

A week after Courtney Love blabbed to Howard Stern about an alleged affair with Gavin Rossdale, the former Bush frontman suddenly found himself the focus of the paparazzi outside the Armani Exchange store in West Hollywood on Thursday afternoon…

Clearly surprised by all the attention—it usually only occurs on this level when he's with his wife, Gwen Stefani, and/or their kids—the singer remained polite and gracious as he fielded questions about Courtney.

"Man, it's old news," said Gavin. "No comment. I put a comment on my website, just to clarify it. You know, just to kind of chill it out."

Obviously "chill" and "out" are not in the paps' vocabulary.
