Amy Winehouse is now a free woman. The British songstress was discharged from a London hospital Monday, June 30 after completing a stay of more than 10 days.

Chris Goodman, a representative for the "Rehab" singer officially confirmed to People Tuesday, July 1 "She has left [the] hospital. She is continuing as an outpatient." As an outpatient, Amy is expected to return to the hospital for regular checkups, Goodman added.

"There comes a time when you are ready to leave the hospital, and so she left. No one was trying to keep her there. It was completely up to her - everyone knew she would not stay there forever," Goodman continued saying.

Amy was first rushed to a hospital in London on June 16 after fainting at her Camden home. She has since then been treated at the London Clinic in the Marylebone section of the city. Is said to have suffered from the early stages of lung disease, emphysema, she however was deemed well enough to perform on two scheduled high-profile occasions; Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday concert and England's famed Glastonbury festival.

After both performances, she then made a return to the London Clinic for further treatment.
