Courtney Love's court hearing on felony drug possession charges has been postponed until 27 January (04).

The pink-clad singer and actress arrived at the BEVERLY HILLS SUPERIOR COURT yesterday afternoon (11DEC03) only to learn her hearing had been delayed. No reason was given for the postponement, and Love made no comment to reporters as she left the courtroom.

Love, 39, is charged with possession of the prescription painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone. The widow of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and founder of the band Hole was arrested on 2 October (03) after police caught her breaking windows at a boyfriend's Los Angeles home in the middle of the night.

Hours later, police took her to a hospital for what was described as a "medical emergency".

Love lost custody of her 11-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain after her arrest.
