Whitney Houston Returns to Rehab

In Breaking News, Celebrity News on May 10, 2011 at 5:30 am

Singing sensation Whitney Houston  is back in rehab.

Her spokeswoman Kristen Foster said in a statement to ABCNews.com, “I can confirm that Whitney Houston is currently in an outpatient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment. Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”

Pressed for more details, Foster wrote in an email, “Unfortunately not, saying anything more would conflict with the privacy/confidentiality she needs at this time….”

Since the Grammy award winning singer’s comeback in 2009, she has been dogged by rumors that she was using drugs again. Houston first admitted to using drugs in a two part interview with Oprah in 2009.

She called her ex husband Bobby Brown”her drug,” saying that she “didn’t do anything without him.”

She also said marijuana laced with cocaine was their substance of choice, and they “would have ounces” of cocaine available at all times.

“You put [cocaine] in your marijuana, you lace it, you smoke it,” she told Winfrey.

Her appearance on “Oprah” was her first major television interview since 2002, when she talked to ABC’s Diane Sawyer.

Sawyer asked Houston at the time about ongoing drug rumors that had started in 2000, when airport security guards found marijuana in Houston and Brown’s bags at a Hawaiian airport. The singer alluded to having used cocaine, pills and marijuana — but drew the line at crack in what turned into an infamous rant.

“First of all, let’s get one thing straight,” she told Sawyer. “Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack. Let’s get that straight. Okay? We don’t do crack. We don’t do that. Crack is wack.”
