Courtney Love was taken to a hospital Friday in New York, just hours after a court commissioner in Los Angeles issued a warrant for the singer's arrest when she missed her arraignment on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
Love, who turned 40 on Friday, went to the hospital after developing a gynecological problem, said her attorney, Michael Rosenstein.
"It is totally unrelated to any kind of drug use or abuse," said Rosenstein, who added that he had no details on her condition.
Los Angeles Court Commissioner Dennis E. Mulcahy issued the bench warrant Friday morning after Love failed to show up for a scheduled hearing in a downtown courtroom. The district attorney's office said Love could be arrested as soon as the warrant was filed.
Rosenstein said Love was aware of Friday's hearing but "she confused the dates." He said she was not attempting to hide from the assault charge.
