Amy Winehouse is back in rehab but determined to sort herself out in time to fly to Los Angeles for the Grammy Awards.
The troubled star, who is up for six gongs on February 10th, was reportedly persuaded to have another go at the treatment after The Sun handed police a video of her allegedly smoking crack.
The 24-year-old checked into the Capio Nightingale Hospital in North London where, according to the Daily Mirror, she will stay for "as long as it takes."
Winehouse’s father Mitch told various radio stations that his daughter went back to rehab voluntarily, although he also admitted that he and his wife had previously tried to have her sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
"Amy is nowhere near being in a position to be sectioned. She has to be a danger to herself," he explained. "You might consider that by taking drugs she is a danger to herself, but the authorities don’t. Amy thinks she can do what she does recreationally and just get on with her life."
The drug-troubled singer, whose husband Blake Fielder-Civil is in jail awaiting trial for trying to pervert the course of justice, has reportedly pulled out of the NRJ Awards in Cannes, but her trip to America may hinge on more than just her health.
Whatever her state of mind, visa issues mean she may not be allowed entry to the States.
There’s no official comment on whether the police intends to pursue the matter and charge Winehouse on the strength of video evidence, although The Times suggests it’s more likely the Met will follow "the legal precedent set in the Kate Moss case" that, "While it is no longer deemed a crime to take drugs at a party, it is a serious offense to do so on the front page of a newspaper. Even if charges prove impossible, the Met gets its shot of celebrity PR."
