Poor Whitney Houston, the soul stirring crooner (and a favorite here at PopBytes) is seeking treatment in a rehabilitation facility yet again. Reportedly the singer entered an outpatient program ten days ago, on a voluntary basis, to begin work on a ‘long-standing recovery process.’ This is just the latest entry into a very public battle Houston has been going through for quite some time now, she went from a mega established chart-topping career two decades ago to a complete 180 descent, including bouts with drugs, alcohol, and her fair share of abusive relationships, notably with her now ex-hubby Bobby Brown.
The singer has been through this before, in 2004 and 2005 the singer entered rehab programs, checking herself out prematurely both times. These stints in rehab came after her attempt to sneak a bag of pot past screeners at a Hawaii airport in 2000 and then a notorious interview with Diane Sawyer two years later, revealing sordid details of her drug driven life, including admittance to using not only marijuana but also cocaine, pills and alcohol but not crack, since that’s whack! She famously also said in that interview that the ‘party is over’, is the party really over now?
Whitney Houston has checked herself in to an out-patient rehabilitation program … TMZ has learned. A source directly connected with Whitney tells us … Houston enrolled in the program around 10 days ago. The program allows Houston to go out in public … as long as she has a monitor. Just last weekend, Houston was enjoying herself at a Prince concert in L.A. … with her daughter right by her side. Our source is not saying why Houston is seeking treatment … but we’re told, “She’s cleansing herself to get ready for a new movie.” SOURCE
