Liza Minelli has realized that she has a problem with alcohol abuse and has sought treatment in a rehab facility.
Liza Minnelli is getting treatment for substance abuse in a Malibu rehab facility.
A rep for Minnelli confirmed the legendary singer and actress is making “excellent progress” in the treatment center.
We’re told 69-year-old Liza’s been in the facility for several days, and her main issue is alcohol.
She’s been in rehab multiple times … most recently in 2004. As the rep put it, “Liza has valiantly battled substance abuse over the years.” Of course, her mother Judy Garland also battled addiction most of her life, and ultimately OD’d in 1969.
Liza was offered up the chance to appear on Celebrity Rehab in the past, but her rep scoffed at the idea saying that Minelli would never appear on the show.
Kudos to her for seeking out some help, though. Leave your best wishes for Liza Minelli in the comments section below.
