Amy Winehouse has entered a drug rehabilitation facility, her record company said Thursday.

A picture of the 24-year-old singer inhaling fumes from a pipe was published this week by British tabloid The Sun.

"Amy decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors," Universal Music Group said in a statement.

"She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction," the statement said.
