Courtney's Case Postponed in Court

12/12/2003 at 10:00 AM EST

Looking pretty in pink, Courtney Love went to court in Beverly Hills on Thursday afternoon, but her hearing on felony drug-possession charges was postponed until Jan. 27, say reports.

Outfitted in a pink jacket, pants, shoes and T-shirt and clutching a bouquet of pink roses, the former Hole singer, 39, told Superior Court Judge Lisa Hart-Cole that she had no objection to delaying the hearing, though she did become anxious when the jurist asked to review the probation report, according to the Associated Press.

"Probation. ... What is that? What is that?" Love reportedly said, before making what AP called growling noises and clawing motions with her hands.

No reason for the delay was given, and Love -- for once -- made no comment to reporters as she exited the courtroom.

Love is charged with possession of the prescription painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone after she overdosed. She has pleaded not guilty.

On Oct. 2, Love (the widow of late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain) was arrested after police caught her breaking windows at a boyfriend's Los Angeles home in the middle of the night.

Love is also charged in a separate case with a misdemeanor for being under the influence of a narcotic.

Her attorney, William Genego, declined to tell reporters whether his client is undergoing drug rehabilitation. He has said, however, that Love took the wrong medication by mistake.
