Back To Rehab For Whitney
Troubled superstar Whitney Houston is
again in rehab.
The singer, 41, has returned to the same treatment facility that she checked
into a year ago, a source close to her family tells us.
However, Houston is likely to be receiving outpatient care, as she refuses
to stay in a residential center. "She may have begun her rehabilitation as
early as March 1," says the insider.
Whitney was absent from a birthday celebration for her 12-year-old daughter,
Bobbi Christina, on March 4 in Norcross, Ga. It was reported at the time
that Houston missed the party because of a concert commitment in Barcelona.
Recording was scheduled to begin this spring on a comeback effort for Clive
Davis' J Records. A source at the label says that while it had been
soliciting tracks for her, she has not yet started recording.
Houston entered rehab for the first time last March, when she checked into
an Atlanta center for five days.
She was busted in January 2000 at a Hawaii airport when marijuana was found
in her handbag. Charges were later dismissed, but in a 2002 interview with
Diane Sawyer, the singer admitted to years of alcohol, marijuana and cocaine
use. Whitney denied, however, that she had ever used crack cocaine, uttering
the famous line: "I make too much [money] for me to ever smoke crack. ...
Crack is wack."
The singer's rep told us, "Whitney Houston has reentered a facility for
rehabilitation, and that is all we know."
