All of these things happened in the past month:
1. One day before Amy Winehouse died, her mom visited her and would later say Amy was so “out of it” that her death “was only a matter of time.” (us)
2. “She has spent the last seven days on a massive bender and people were saying she’s going to drink herself to death.” Sources claim she died from a ‘bad’ ecstasy pill combined with huge amounts of alcohol.” (the mirror)
3. “The sordid details of Amy Winehouse’s final hours emerged today, with claims that she bought a cocktail of narcotics including cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine.” (daily mail)
4. “Winehouse slurred through her set to the echoes of boos from the 20,000-strong crowd. ‘Amy was just standing there, swaying back and forth and mumbling occasionally.’ ” (THR)
Okay, so with all that in mind, here’s what her dad Mitch talked about at her funeral…
Mitch Winehouse yesterday claimed his tragic daughter had beaten her drug addiction – and had, in fact, conquered her dependency three years ago.
“Three years ago, Amy conquered her drug dependency, the doctors said it was impossible but she really did it. She was trying hard to deal with her drinking and had just completed three weeks of abstinence.”
Oh fuck you, Mitch. I hate this dick. He could have helped save his daughters life and he didn’t. Instead he covered for her and told her she didn’t need rehab. I get that he’s grieving but there’s so much revisionist history in that story I’m willing to bet he’s counting the time she’s been dead as another week of abstinence.
