London (ANI): Amy Winehouse has been put under a 24-hour house arrest after she confessed to taking drugs while being treated for heroin addiction. The singer's label bosses have put her under surveillance in an effort to keep her away from any dealers and drug-taking friends, according to reports.
Amy is said to have admitted: "I've never been to rehab I mean, done it properly. I'm young, and I'm in love, and I get my nuts off sometimes." "But it's never been like, 'Amy, get your life together. "To be honest, my husband's away, I'm bored, I'm young. I felt like there was nothing to live for. It's just been a low ebb," she added.
The troubled singer was discharged from a London clinic on June 30, after collapsing at her home earlier last month. Doctors subsequently diagnosed her with traces of potentially deadly lung disease emphysema. And, in an anxious bid to keep her clean of drugs, executives at her music label Island Records have reportedly put her under the attentive eye of a full-time security guard.
"Effectively, Amy's been put under house arrest. She is being monitored by 24/7 surveillance to make sure she's behaving herself and keeping out of harm's way," the Mirror quoted a source, as saying. "There is also a security guard stationed outside her house around the clock to vet any undesirables. From now on, there'll be no more waifs and strays (random people) coming into her place, wreaking havoc.
"Crucially, they don't want known drug dealers coming anywhere near her. Amy has to give them names of people expected. Anyone who turns up uninvited will be sent packing. It's for her own good," the source added.
