According to German magazine Bild George Michael is back in rehab. However his rep has made a statement denying  the claims, saying: “George has not just entered rehab but is spending time in Europe. He is well and enjoying an extended break.”

The magazine didn’t specify the reason for Michael’s hospitalization, but a source revealed that he’d been “smoking as many as 25 joints a day” during a long period of seclusion that began after he was involved in a serious auto accident in 2013.

A website for the facility he’s reportedly using says, “We treat alcohol and drug addiction, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, sex addiction and Internet addiction.”

Friends have said they feared for George’s life after he became a virtual recluse – even missing Spice Girl pal Geri Halliwell’s wedding last month.
