Miley ignores pleas to go to rehab

Miley Cyrus has refused to go to rehab.

The 22-year-old singer - who has been open about experimenting with drugs in the past - is reportedly ignoring the advice of her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, and her godmother, Dolly Parton, who are becoming increasingly worried about her behaviour and have urged her to seek help.

The news follows the release of a photograph of the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker - which was taken by a witness at a 4am recording session in November - showing the singer working on her laptop with what appears to be a pile of cannabis, a rolled up bank note and a vial of white powder on a table in front of her.

According to The Sun newspaper, an insider at the party said: "It was a pretty sleazy situation.

"Miley said a lot of people have been trying to get her into rehab, but it's not something that she's interested in."

The former Disney star - who was filmed using a bong to smoke the psychedelic herb salvia in 2010 - has also confessed to using "happy drugs", including cannabis and ecstasy, in the past.

She said during an interview in 2013: "Those are happy drugs, social drugs. They make you want to be with friends."
