Amy Winehouse's Father Cancels NYC Performance, Flying Back To London

| Filed under: Amy WinehouseR.I.P.Sad Sad


We can't even begin to imagine what this poor man is going through right now.

When news broke that Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London flat, it appears that her father, Mitch, had been unaware of the devastating news, as he was on a plane to NYC to prepare for a performance at the Blue Note jazz club this coming Monday.

We're very sad to report that he's landed, and has canceled the gig so he can head straight back to England to be with his family during this impossible tragedy.

Our thoughts are with him, as well as all of Amy's loved ones.

We sincerely hope that wherever she is now, she's at peace.

    poor guy, imagine having the whole world your daughter that you loved so dearly died before you did…

  3. 3

    That came out wrong lol hehem I meant to say poor guy how awful must it be to have the whole world know before you do your beloved daughter has died

  4. 4

    Lulz, now that she's dead you are wishing her peace, yet when she was living you terrorized her on this blog on a daily basis. Why couldn't it have been you? I mean its a well known fact in the industry that you are addicted to meth. People don't just lose that amount of weight overnight from diet and exercise.

    how horrible it should be !!! Poor man ! all my thoughts are with him and his family !

    What really bothers me is that when Amy's Father was on the news every single day talking about his daughter and how she needed help in order to save her life, Perez kept accusing him of being a media wh*re and telling him to keep his mouth shut. Same thing with Michael Lohan, for a long time he was out there saying his daughter has issues and that he wants her to get better in order to put pressure under her to get her life together and Perez mocked him for that too. Now that they have both stopped talking to the media, look at where Lindsay and Amy are in their lives. I would rather have a parent that puts me on blast when I'm falling apart so I can feel the pressure to get help than one who would pretend nothing is wrong and let the world think so as well.

    Her father fell for that 12-Step Religious POISON that kills so many desperate people that just need REAL HELP and not make-believe "Higher Power" nonsense….

  8. 8

    My heart goes out to Amy's parents, and all the parents like them who have had to endure watching their child follow such a self-destructive path.

  9. 9

    He tried so hard, but the 12-Step religious cult's SATANIC "HIGHER POWER" WON; it is that evil people…..

  10. 10

    Perez, I agree with one poster. You did dog Lohan's Dad and Amy's dad for trying to help their daughters. You do, FOR SURE, need to be more careful about that stuff. You comments might seem fun in the moment and make you money from your readers, but I do believe each and every one of us has to be more careful. She had people trying to help her. And you pinned both of them as media whores. Amy's death is not on your hands, but you had a small part in the destruction, whether you think so or not.

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – I could not agree more, and these tabloid types need to think about what they post and what they say. Perez should feel like shit about now.

  12. 12

    Re: TrannyTakesATumble – Do you have proof Perez does meth? Says who? Be careful what bullshit you post. Be able to prove it.

  13. 13

    She was gorgeous and terribly talented but what surprises me, honestly, is that she did not die sooner. EGO KILLS. Go to AA meetings and you will learn how to tap into your talent without the DRAGON EGO freaking out about it…

  14. 14

    mabey bc i dont know about the music industry but even afetr you DIE someone has to cancel your shows?!?!?

  15. 15

    I am sorry for the loss of Amy, BUT…

    Indications are that Amy's emotional problems stemmed from her chaotic unstable childhood and her underlying hatred for her father who was (reportedly) a womanizer and left the home.

    Odds are very very very very very very very very good that…he…is the leading culprit in her demise.

    Actions have consequences. Sometimes the effects linger a lifetime.

    People use drugs and alcohol to deal with deep pain that was caused by something and/or someone.

    Here is a cautionary tale. People are so so selfish when there are children involved. The selfishness is far more important to the damage that they do to their kids.

  16. 16

    She lived 2 years longer than expected

    Re: Ohh Yeah! – it was his show, not Amy's :)

    Re: VicktheChick33 – AA meetings are bullshit and most of the time don't work — percentage of success is very low. The world needs something better than AA. I'm sick to death of hearing AA is the answer. It is bullshit. It is also based on religion. How does that work for atheists and agnostics? It doesn't. It's crap.

  19. 19

    Another lost soul that fame ruined; may she rest in peace now.

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – Regardless of a chaotic or abusive childhood, there comes a point when you become an adult and have to take responsibility for your own actions. Addicts who continue to blame parents will continue to be addicts, addicts who take responsibility for their own lives have a chance of recovery. No parent is perfect.

    Lron, I don't agree with your conclusion.
    My dad fucked around on my mother from Boston to Bombay and back.
    I've never felt the need to do meth or cocaine and this was through the '60's and '80's, where drugs were everywhere. (I knew I would love them and just said no.)

    Didn't even touch pot till I was 42!
    I went to work every single day for 40 years and raised a great kid.
    We're responsible for our own actions.

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – i agree. as someone who struggles, i was so angry when my rehab facility told me to go to aa, especially as an agnostic. i know they say non-christians are suppose to get help from it, making "Him" into something thats meaning to you, but i couldnt, all i heard was god this, Him that. i dont think religion should be the only way to find sobriety, and kudos to those who can weed out god to get better, but i couldnt, it just mad me mad. everything you said is true, the success rate is low, people drop out, relapse. i find putting such a freaking heavy emphasis on how long youve been sober like they do is a BAD idea. i mean, they freaking count they days! i find cognitive behavioral therapy/life coaching is the best approach.

    You can't go through life holding someone's hand because of issues ( Brittney). She was an Adult and had plenty of warnings about her train wreck of a life. Of course it's a shame but it's just another one to use as an example as how not to be.

  24. 24

    I can't imagine finding out over the news that your daughter has passed away. My condolences to the family. RIP Amy.

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – i think you need to do some research before you speak so recklessly. first, people use drugs/alcohol for other reasons than you listed.second, you are generalizing a large group of people incorrectly. i have addiction, drug abuse, infidelity in my family and i know many others with similar experiences. granted, i have what you refer to "deep pain" as do others i know, but we do not resort to smoking crack nor have we ended up in jail. yes, it is the job of parents to be careful, as everything they do can heavily affect a child. however, we are given the ability to choose, and sadly, she chose a dark path. she also chose not to seek help. im sure fame and money didnt help, as well. dont blame him for what happened to her. besides, im sure hes blaming himself already. Re: rosebud99 – i agree, they will always be addicts and they should take responsibility for their lives. however, when doing so, i think its okay to be conscious of the mistakes their parents made and how it affected them.

  26. 26

    Re: rosebud99 – "No parent is perfect."

    What a lame diversionary line of cr*p.

    Look, she was screwed up in the head and those problems ended up killing her.

    Not everyone survives the mental abuse. Some do. Some don't Simple as that.

    If you survived, it just means you are LUCKY.

    You'll, no doubt, blather on and remain dishonest.

    Hope dear ol' dad enjoyed the pu**y on the side. Thoughts of those halcion days gone by may give him comfort while he puts his daughter in the ground.

    Say what you like (aka stay in denial), but I would bet anything Dad is feeling the guilt right about now. He knows where her problems came from.

  27. 27

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – Yeah, Perez SHOULD feel like shit right now, but he's too full of himself and self-righteous to even begin to acknowledge that he's a moral zero. Instead he'll make posts full of preachy lessons and send out his usual phony condolences looking to make money off of Winehouse's death via hits on his site. He has no conscience whatsoever and deserves to roast in hell if there's an afterlife.

  28. 28

    @ Pams tripple… You really have no idea of what you're talking about do you ? Just admit it.

  29. 29

    Perez it was people like you that are the reason she is dead now.

  30. 30

    To imply in any way, shape or form that Perez or anyone else has anything to do with Amy's death, by virtue of the fact that he criticized her parents, is mean-spirited, vitriolic, and just plain horrible. You should be ashamed of yourselves. It's easy to spew insults and cast blame when you have no emotional bond to the situation. I hope everyone who was touched by Amy finds some inner peace in the face of her untimely death. May she rest in peace now.

  31. 31

    RIP Amy! Prayers to her family and true friends.

  32. 32

    I can't even think how it feels to lose your child. Poor Amy's family.
    R.I.P Amy, hope you have found your peace now.

  33. 33

    God Bless. Sincerely.

  34. 34

    It's hard to feel sorry and pray for her family and friends, when they should have been helping her and watching her when they know she struggled with addiction.

  35. 35

    Re: Moogle80 – ohh hahaha thanks

  36. 36

    Amy, your voice still lives in my heart and in my head, and my pen is bleeding to speak. But I can't write with tears….

  37. 37

    How sad….No father should have to bury their daughter. Addiction is horrible and killing a lot of people's loved ones. The loved ones have to suffer and have holes in them and hardRe: rosebud99
    I completely agree with you.

  38. 38

    PLEASE don't blame the family or friends as addiction is very complex. Many loved ones try to help and it ends up being to late.

  39. 39

    my heart goes out to Amys father and the rest of her family, whether people think its her own fault, or her fathers fault it is so very sad, may she rest in peace.
