George Michael has checked into a rehab to overcome his drug addiction.

"I want to beat my drug addiction and lead a normal life," the Sun quoted him as saying while leaving home in the early hours this week.

As he was chauffeured from his house, he said: "I don't want to end up back in prison. It's a very horrible place to be. You're not considered a person when you're inside, you're just a number and that freaked me out."

"I have done wrong and paid my time for doing this stupid crime and I want to get my life back on track," he added.

George MichealGeorge - with his two Labradors - was then whisked away in his Range Rover from his flash pad in Highgate, North London. His partner, Kenny Goss, rubbished George's rehab claim as "nonsense" and said he had probably gone out to walk his dogs.

But in the afternoon George's Range Rover returned - without the star or his pets. When Kenny was asked where George was, he replied simply: "Relaxing." George's aides refused to speculate on where he was.

But a source said: "If he said he was going into rehab, we have no reason to disbelieve him."
