Another weekend, another trip to the ER for Amy Winehouse. According to British press reports, the fragile singer was rushed to a hospital Saturday night after doctors visiting her at home on Thursday became concerned that her condition had deteriorated.
The singer's British spokesperson, Chris Goodman, confirmed today that Winehouse had "gone for some checkups," that she had a chest infection last week and that, given her earlier treatment for lung damage, doctors wanted to make sure everything was OK. In June, the 25-year-old singer was hospitalized with a severe lung ailment that her father, Mitch, attributed to smoking cigarettes and crack cocaine. At the time, he told reporters that she was suffering from the early stages of the incurable disease emphysema. Winehouse is expected back home today.
