Temporarily getting her act together, Love appeared in court while simultaneously releasing her first solo venture album, America's Sweetheart (2004). The album was panned—a result likely influenced by Love's constant media coverage for her behavior under the influence.
Since Love's drugs possession charge in 2003, her daughter had resided with her paternal grandmother, but in January 2005,
she finally regained custody of her after completing a rehab program and entering a period of probation. However, by August of that same year, Love admitted using drugs again in violation of her probation. She was ordered into a 28-day drug treatment program, which she violated, subsequently receiving a sentence of six months in a closed rehab unit.
Three months after being released from the court-ordered rehab, Love began to record her second solo album, which she'd taken time out to write during her period of confinement. Instead of being released as a solo project, however, the album, entitled Nobody's Daughter, was released by Hole in April 2010. But the Hole that released the album wasn't the same band that Love was previously associated with. Because former members Erlandson and Auf der Mauer refused to join Love in the band's reunion, she recruited three new members to fill the void left in Hole.
After Hole failed to live up to the success that they found in the past, Love announced that she would be releasing a sophomore solo album entitled Died Blonde in late 2013. It was also revealed that she had been working on an autobiography, Courtney Love: My Story, during this time.
