Liza Minnelli has checked into a Malibu rehab seeking alcohol dependency treatment.
The actress-singer’s rep confirmed to ET: “Liza Minnelli has valiantly battled substance abuse over the years and whenever she has needed to seek treatment she has done so.”
“This is a disease, and the sooner we know that the better,” she told James Lipton on a 2006 episode of Inside the Actors Studio.
“It’s a disease you don’t have to succumb to.”
Liza Minnelli’s rep said that “she is currently making excellent progress at an undisclosed facility”.
