Whitney Houston has entered a rehab facility, her publicist has confirmed.

"[Whitney] is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment," her rep tells People Magazine in a statement. "Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process."

The singer reportedly checked into the facility ten days ago, and TMZ claims she is "cleansing herself to get ready for a new movie," which is rumored to be Getting Happy, the sequel to Waiting to Exhale.

Houston's Waiting to Exhale co-star Angela Bassett recently appeared on The Talk and revealed that everyone from the original cast will be reuniting for the Forest Whitaker-directed film, including Houston.
