A year after her first reported stay in rehab, Whitney Houston has again checked into a rehabilitation facility
Singer Whitney Houston has re-entered a rehabilitation facility, a year after her first entering a program for substance abuse in March 2004 after a string of canceled appearances and erratic behavior, her publicist Nancy Seltzer said on Wednesday. There aren't any details given about when and where the pop diva had first entered the facility.
In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer in 2002, Houston admitted to using alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and prescription drugs, but said then a spiritual advisor had helped her stop the bad habits. Besides, her husband Bobby Brown, also 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 DUI in February 2004.
Last month Houston 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.
