Amy Winehouse is back in rehab… again.
The UK singer, 27, “has embarked on a treatment program at the Priory Clinic,” her rep said in a statement to People. “She wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctors’ advice.”
According to People, an unnamed friend said Winehouse checked into rehab at the urging of her father, Mitch.
“Her dad sat her down and said, ‘I think you’re drinking too much again,’” the unnamed friend told the magazine. “So she agreed to go an assessment to stop it becoming a bigger problem.”
Reportedly, Winehouse will be out of rehab in time to tour Europe this summer. She is scheduled to kick off a series of concert dates in Europe on June 18 at Kalemegdan Park in Belgrade, Serbia.
