The hospitalised star will have to face the music when she returns to California...

Courtney Love still faces arrest when she returns to CALIFORNIA following the decision of a judge yesterday (July 22).

A warrant was issued for the singer nearly two weeks ago when she failed to appear at a scheduled court appearance after being hospitalised in New York, suffering from what has been described as a “gynaecological” problem. She has been in hospital ever since.

At a hearing yesterday a judge refused to suspend the warrant, meaning when she comes back into California she could be arrested.

Reuters reports that her lawyer Michael Rosenstein said he planned to bring Courtney Love back to LA and to court before police could arrest her.

Once back in LA the singer will have to post a bail of US$150,000.

Courtney Love is facing an assault charge following an alleged incident with another woman at the home of her former manager.
