Troubled rocker Courtney Love pleaded not guilty Wednesday to felony assault charges, the Associated Press reports.

The singer-actress, 40, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon stemming from an incident in which she allegedly threw a liquor bottle at woman she discovered in her ex-boyfriend’s house.

During the incident, which happened on April 25, Love allegedly found the 32-year-old woman sleeping on her ex-boyfriend’s couch, became violent and also chased the woman around with a flashlight.

Love entered her plea before Superior Court Judge Terry Green. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Dec.15. Love is free on $150,000 bail.

The assault case is just one of many Kurt Cobain’s widow has faced over the past year. Last month she pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for hitting an audience member with a microphone stand during a concert in New York. She also pleaded guilty earlier this year to a misdemeanor drug charge, and agreed to enter a drug rehab program.

The former Hole singer also faces drug charges in Beverly Hills Superior Court for illegal possession of painkillers.
