Published Aug 09, 2007Yes, it's been brewing for some time, but according to a close friend, Amy "No rehab for me" Winehouse has admitted she is on the verge of contradicting her big hit in order to check into rehab. So bad is her condition that the nasty UK press is calling her "Amy Declinehouse." Harsh!
The Mercury Prize-nominated singer was scheduled to perform at Norway's Øya Festival this past weekend, but had to cancel on account of "severe exhaustion," according to her label Island.
No stranger to these types of cancellations, Winehouse has been caught by tabloids recently getting blitzed out of her skull with husband Blake Fielder-Civil while she was slated to perform gigs. I guess that can be exhausting, if you drink enough.
UK gossip rag The Sun, however, is graphically reporting that Winehouse was rushed to London's University College Hospital after an apparent overdose, where she had her stomach pumped. The article also states the Winehouse has admitted using marijuana and cocaine, and goes on to talk about her struggles with both bulimia and anorexia.
No word has been given yet if Winehouse will pull out of her duties at Virgin Festival in Toronto and Osheaga in Montreal the weekend of September 8 and 9.
