Amy Winehouse doesn’t seem to be bouncing back from her recent problems with drugs, appearing out of it and scarily thin at concerts or backing out all together. Since she won’t go to rehab, will Scientology work?
The UK’s Sunday Mirror says that the singer told friends she was called by a member of the Church of Scientology’s celebrity center in L.A., offering to work with her to get her life together.
Founded by L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer, Scientology has many famous devotees, including Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston and Juliette Lewis. The sect has a Narconon program which helps addicts conquer their dependency on drugs.
"She’s had a call from the celebrity branch of the Church Of Scientology, the Sunday Mirror quotes one of Amy’s friends as saying.
"She thinks they got her number through one of the American music producers who worked on her Back to Black album," continues the source. "They told her they wanted to help her beat drugs and could tailor-make a program so she wouldn’t have to go to a residential center. She liked that idea because her husband Blake [Fielder-Civil] is out of prison soon and wouldn’t want to be away from him when he’s finally freed.”
