The news was first reported by The Sun, who claims that an eyewitness saw the singer buy a baby bottle of Smirnoff, you know, of the miniature kind, and proceed to drink it.
“She seemed out of it. She was stumbling about, slurring her words. I was shocked to see her buy vodka so early in the day, and even more shocked to see her knock it straight back.”
Okay, so that’s equivalent to what, a couple shots, right? A last hurrah, perhaps? Now I’m not making light of the situation, and this is quite serious, but it goes to show what an effect substance abuse has on a person. When you have an addiction, you want it and need it no matter what.
Apparently prior to the vodka episode, she was seen going into a hair salon to use the restroom when witnesses claim they heard her hurling while in the john. When she came out, she reportedly said, ‘I just puked all over your bathroom’. A spokesperson for Winehouse said that she wasn’t sick and insists she was only joking about the puking comment. He did divulge that the bee-hived singer was seeking treatment at The Priory. The clinic is located in London.
As we all know, Winehouse has had a long history with substance abuse. I’m sorry to say that I’ve lost count as to how many times she has entered rehab. One can only hope that this time around she finally beats this demon. Her family has been down this road before, and they of all people know how much she needs support right now.
