“They tried to make her go to rehab, she said …” or anything along those lines, because I just can’t bring myself to do that.
Thankfully, though, Amy Winehouse finally brought herself to check into a drug and alcohol rehab. After what can only be described as a torrential string of concert cancellations and a recent hospitalization after a drug and alcohol binge, The Mirror is reporting that Winehouse has checked into the U.K.’s Priory rehab center in London.
“It’s not an exaggeration to say that unless she sorts herself out, this relentless dalliance with drink and drugs will only have one ending. And it won’t be happy. It’s time for some tough love which is why we’ve taken her to get help,” says a close friend.
When Amy arrived at The Priory, “she looked in a terrible state, she could barely walk,” says a source. She reportedly has a private wing at the center, and her parents are there with her.
