New York: Rocker Courtney Love seems to have set her sights on a new man. Despite recent complaints of money woes, she bid USD 17,000 for tea with Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody.

The 46-year-old widow of Kurt Cobain dished out the sum at Paul Haggis` Artists for Peace and Justice fund-raiser for Haitian schools Friday night, reported New York Post.

Sources said that Love got into a fierce bidding war with Gerard Butler over Brody at the bash. She also scooped up a walk-on part in Haggis` next movie.

Actors like Russell Crowe and Susan Sarandon, Edward Norton, Trudie Styler, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Andre Balazs and writer Salman Rushdie were also present at the auction.
