LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge Friday praised rocker/actress Courtney Love's behavior and sobriety and freed her from house arrest.

"Overall, I think you're doing really well," Judge Rand Rubin told Love during a progress report hearing, RollingStone.com reported. "We're all pretty pleased with your progress. At this point, the house arrest is complete, so you're done."

Love completed six months of court-ordered drug treatment -- including four months in residential rehab -- for violating 2003 and 2004 convictions for assault, possession of an illegal prescription and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

The rocker read a statement thanking the court for helping her "deal with a very gnarly drug problem, which is behind me."

She remains on probation until 2007, however, and still must submit to drug and alcohol tests.

Love told RollingStone.com she spent her four months in the treatment center writing new music, which she has dubbed "The Rehab Demos."

She said she has been in the studio with Billy Corgan and plans to demo the new material in the coming weeks.
