Amy Winehouse and her husband Blake Fielder-Civil checked into an undisclosed a drug rehabilitation center in the United States, it has been reported.
It takes time and needs hard work for the people close to her before they could finally get her into rehab. Amy Winehouse and her husband Blake Fielder-Civil have checked into rehab, the U.K.'s Daily Mirror reported.
The paper wrote that Winehouse, famous for her hit single "Rehab", and Blake agreed to go to rehab when their respective fathers nearly came to blows over their children's drug use. The couple reportedly already checked into an undisclosed drug rehabilitation center in the United States to deal with their addiction problems.
Further the Daily Mirror said it broke the singer's heart to see her father and father in-law fighting upon their attempt to stop her and Blake from smoking heroin in their suite on Friday night August 10th. "It was only when Amy saw her family falling apart that she realized she had to do something," a source told the paper. "That was the point when she realized all the drink and drugs were causing huge problems for everybody. She confessed that she and Blake had drug problems and had to have treatment together."
Winehouse was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning August 8th for "severe exhaustion." "Amy was admitted to London's University College London Hospital for exhaustion, treated and released just this afternoon," the singer's rep said at that time. "The doctor said she was suffering from severe exhaustion, and she was told to rest."
However, it was later on reported that the hospitalization was actually due to an overdose.
