These two female celebrities have been out of the spotlight for awhile.
We discovered that part of the reason is because they were both in rehab!
At the same time.
At the same facility.
While they didn’t know each other prior to rehab, they quickly bonded over discussions of music and divorce and dealing with the paparazzi.
They are now talking about working on a project together, although it would be an incredibly odd pairing.
They come from different countries and have very different backgrounds.
One is tattooed and foul-mouthed, and the other is practically royalty.
Amy Winehouse and Lisa Marie Presley!
The two singers were in rehab together in early 2011 in a facility in England.
They didn’t know each other before then, but did become friends during their time there.
(Yes, although Amy Winehouse sang about NOT going to rehab, she actually did seek treatment.)
Unfortunately, their friendship was short-lived.
Amy Winehouse died on July 23, 2011, approximately two months after we originally ran this blind item.
Obviously, Amy and Lisa never did get around to working together on a music project. That would have been an unusual pairing, though, right?
Lisa Marie Presley – the daughter of rock royalty Elvis Presley – finished that rehab stint, but has continued to battle her addictions since then.
In fact, Radar Online is reporting today that Lisa Marie is back in rehab.
From Radar Online:
Lisa Marie Presley has checked into rehab to battle addictions to alcohol, painkillers and other drugs.
Elvis’ daughter, who recently split from her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood, after ten years of marriage, secretly entered The Hills Treatment Center in Los Angeles, a rehab to the rich and famous which is setting Presley back $400,000 a month.
“Lisa Marie just fell off the wagon over the past couple of years and needed serious help in getting her life back on track again,” an insider revealed.
As RadarOnline reported, Presley, 48, filed for divorce on June 24 from 55-year-old Lockwood, with whom she has 7-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley.
The former couple’s explosive fights and troubling issues may have contributed to Presley’s problems.
Her tumultuous relationship with Lockwood “was not a healthy one and a lot of people thought she was self-medicating to deal with her pain,” said a friend.
Presley has famously battled addiction for decades, admitting in the past that she’s used “cocaine, sedatives, pot and drinking — all at the same time.”
“I just couldn’t be sober,” she noted. “I don’t know how I lived through it.”
