Wearing a pink jacket, pants, shoes and T-shirt and clutching a bouquet of roses in the same shade, the artist told Superior Court Judge Lisa Hart-Cole that she had no objection to delaying the hearing. No reason was given for the postponement, and Love made no comment to reporters as she exited the courtroom.
Love, 39, is charged with possession of the prescription painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone. The widow of late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain and founder of the band Hole was arrested on Oct. 2 after police caught her breaking windows at a boyfriend's Los Angeles home in the middle of the night. Love lost custody of her 11-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain after her arrest.
