AMY WINEHOUSE’s representative has denied the star is to check back into rehab
– insisting she has put her drug problems behind her.
The Back To Black hitmaker was admitted to a clinic in January (08) to finally kick her addictions – but checked out after just two weeks.
And subsequent pictures of the singer looking distinctly unhealthy led to reports that she is planning on returning to a rehabilitation facility to continue treatment.
But Winehouse’s representative has rubbished the rumors, putting the star’s current health issues down to a recent skin infection.
He tells U.S. magazine Us Weekly, “Amy’s doing well. She is not going back to rehab at this time.
“The problem is that her face looks bad because of impetigo – it’s not a nice thing, but it’s not related to drugs. (Amy is) having time off, recording a bit at her home studios, about to go back into the studio properly and working towards her husband’s freedom.”
Winehouse’s husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, has been incarcerated in a London prison since November (07) on charges of assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
