Pop Diva Whitney Houston Back In Rehab

Mar 23, 2005 LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop diva Whitney Houston has checked back into a drug rehabilitation program, a year after first entering a program for substance abuse, her publicist said on Wednesday.

It was not immediately clear where Houston was seeking treatment or when the Grammy-winning singer and actress had first entered the facility.

"Whitney Houston has reentered a facility for rehabilitation," publicist Nancy Seltzer said in a brief statement.

Houston, 41, first checked into a drug rehab center in March 2004 after a string of canceled appearances and erratic behavior.

Last month she was rushed to a hospital in Paris after becoming ill from food poisoning on a flight bound for France. In January, she was cited by police after rear-ending a city bus with her sports car near her Atlanta-area home.

In a 2002 interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, Houston admitted to using alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and prescription drugs, but said then a spiritual advisor had helped her stop taking drugs.

Her husband, Bobby Brown, has a history of run-ins with the law, including battery charges after a domestic dispute with Houston in December 2003 and a probation violation for drunken driving in February 2004.

Houston was just 21 when her first album became the biggest-selling debut ever by a female recording artist at that time.

In 1992, she starred in her first feature film "The Bodyguard," opposite Kevin Costner, and sang the theme song "I Will Always Love You," which went on to become the biggest-selling single in music history at that time.
