As The Amp previously reported, Love is being sued by Dawn Simorangkir for defamation -- she allegedly described the designer as a druggie prostitute with violent tendencies who stole from the singer -- based on 140-character statements she made on her old @CourtneyLover79 account. The trial, expected to last around a week, begins February 8th and Love is still slated to testify.
Right now it's unclear whether Love's Twitter vanished because of an order from the judge, or a strategic move by her own defense team -- since nobody involved in a legal proceeding can speak publicly about it, it's possible her lawyers are attempting to prevent a Steve Martin.
