Amy Winehouse Back in Rehab

Samir Hussein/Getty Images(LONDON) -- They tried to make her go to rehab -- and they succeeded.

Amy Winehouse's rep tells People magazine that the singer has checked into the Priory Clinic in the UK as part of her ongoing struggle with alcohol addiction.  The rep said, "She wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctors' advice."

A source tells People that Amy's dad Mitch Winehouse initiated the move, telling her that he felt she was drinking too much again.  Says the source, "She agreed to go an assessment to stop it becoming a bigger problem."

Winehouse's concerts in Europe are scheduled to begin June 18.
