According to sources, she voluntarily checked herself into a rehab facility just 10 days ago, but has able to leave the facility while wearing a monitor.
Entering rehab twice before in 2004 and 2005, the 47-year-old Whitney Houston has long battled her addiction to drugs and alcohol in the public light. As recent as 2009, Whitney recorded a comeback album and proudly declared herself clean and sober. The news of her entering rehab also comes on the heels of her daughter’s Bobbi Kristina’s alleged scandal caught with cocaine in March.
“Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment,” Houston’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”
She is allowed to leave the premises of the rehab center while wearing a monitor, and was just recently seen enjoying one of Prince’s shows in Los Angeles. There is no word on where she is staying or how long the program will last.
