Winehouse 'not being treated in Suffolk'

REPORTS that troubled singer Amy Winehouse could soon be receiving treatment from a respected addiction centre in Suffolk are wide of the mark, the EADT understands.

REPORTS that troubled singer Amy Winehouse could soon be receiving treatment from a respected addiction centre in Suffolk are wide of the mark, the EADT understands.

National newspapers yesterday reported that Winehouse is set to book herself into the Focus 12 clinic in Bury St Edmunds in a bid to beat her well-known drug problems.

Chip Somers, chief executive, said yesterday it was not the charity's policy to confirm or deny the identity of anyone seeking help.

However, the EADT understands that the reports, which come as her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil is serving a 27-month jail term at Highpoint Prison, near Newmarket, are untrue.

Winehouse, who appeared at the V music festival in Chelmsford at the weekend, was spotted briefly in Haverhill on Friday afternoon.
