And they tried to make her go to rehab and she said
no, no, no yes, yes, yes!
Amy Winehouse has officially checked herself into rehab! This time, instead of jetting off to St. Lucia for a much needed vacation away from the craziness, Amy has decided that an actually rehab clinic would be the proper answer.
We hadn’t heard anything about her recently, and we were in hopes that it meant we could expect a new album from her soon. All of our hopes on that are no dashed, but at least she’s now getting the help she needs.
Winehouse is now seeking treatment for “alcohol addiction” at the Priory Clinic, a prestigious UK rehab center.
Amy’s people released a statement saying, “[Amy] wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctors’ advice.”
According to reports, Amy’s issues are so bad … she even drank a small bottle of vodka on her way to the facility Wednesday.
A snitch close to Amy has revealed that her father Mitch pushed the rehab issue with his famous daughter. People magazine has more:
According to a source close to the singer, it was a move initiated by her father Mitch Winehouse. “Her dad sat her down and said ‘I think you’re drinking too much again.’ So she agreed to go an assessment to stop it becoming a bigger problem.”
I hope that she gets all of the help she needs. Amy is a highly talented singer and we look forward to her full recovery! Good luck, Amy!
