Winehouse denies Israel rehab trip

Amy Winehouse has refuted reports she is set to travel to Israel to receive treatment to kick her alleged drug addiction.

According to the Jewish Chronicle, the troubled singer was reportedly ordered by her management to undergo a "very short, intensive and effective treatment" costing $12,800 (€8,111) at the western Asian country's Barzilai Medical Centre.

But Chris Goodman, a spokesman for the singer, insists the 24-year-old singer has "no plans" to fly to Israel.

He says: "These are just old rumours. She's going back in the studio and has absolutely no plans to go abroad for treatment."
