Courtney Love was taken to a Los Angeles hospital early Thursday morning. The singer was attending a private party hosted by fellow rocker Liz Phair at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel's Tropicana Bar when, according to Love's publicist, she "felt faint" and went outside to get some air. An ambulance was called and Love was then taken to a hospital.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, a police report was taken at the Roosevelt, but the contents have been marked confidential.
Love's criminal lawyer Michael Rosenstein is due in court today to give a progress report on the singer's adherence to her sentence on a misdemeanor drugs charge from October 2003. Love is currently fulfilling eighteen months of probation. The conditions required Love to enroll in a rehab program, take narcotics tests, stay away from known drug users and meet with a probation officer.
According to Love's publicist, she was released from the hospital "immediately."
Love, who completed a rehab program on the East Coast last summer, has appeared at public events in recent weeks, including the American Idol finale with daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
