More Details On Amy's Death, Her Mom And Dad Speak

| Filed under: AnglophiliaAmy WinehouseSad Sad


We can't even imagine what Amy Winehouse's parents are going through right now.

After the loss of their daughter on Saturday, her parents Janis and Mitch Winehouse are finally speaking out.

After seeing her just 24 hours before her passing, a heartbroken Janis said that her daughter's death was "only a matter of time." She added:

"She seemed out of it. But her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me.

They are the words I will always treasure. I’m glad I saw her when I did."

Meanwhile, her father Mitch didn't hear of the devastating news until he landed in NYC after a flight from London. After hearing of the news, he said:

"I’m getting the next plane back. I’m coming home. I have to be with Amy. I can’t crack up for her sake. My family need me. I’m devastated, it’s such a shock."

More details have emerged such as what a neighbor said when she heard noises coming from Amy's home on Saturday afternoon. She said, "At about 3:30am I heard crying from next door… terrible crying like somebody mourning. The ambulances and police cars arrived shortly after that."

Even though autopsy results have yet to be completed, friends did say that over the past couple of days, they believe Amy was on a path of self-destruction with wild drinking binges around Camden, North London.

According to them, they think that Amy died from a "bad" ecstasy pill combined with huge amounts of alcohol. She also suffered from emphysema.

Amy's bodyguard Ray Grange was said to be the one who found Amy. She was considered to be "beyond help" by the time ambulance crews and police arrived.

As for her funeral, sources say that it could possibly even occur today.

So very sad. Our hearts go out to Amy's family. We hope she is finally at peace.

    You omitted something. Her mother said Amy's last words to her were, "I love you". That's why her mom told the reporter, "They are the words I will always treasure. I’m glad I saw her when I did."

  2. 2

    First of all loser Perez, her parents' comments were on the web way before you got your ass out of bed this morning. Second, more speculation on what the neighbor said. You post late, or you post early before things are confirmed. Oh that's right — it's a weekend. You're busy. For Christ's sake.

  3. 3

    Her parents know the Illuminati killed her.

  4. 4

    Yep, Perez left out the most important part of her Mom's story. Totally left out where Amy told her Mom I love you. Most important part, otherwise it doesn't make sense. Forgive Perez, it's a weekend and he can't even proof read his shit.

  5. 5

    you perez are the one who's not at peace after all the things you said about her!

  6. 6

    Peace to Amy and her family. Hey Perez though you left out and reported late everything about this story. You also 4got to say how drugs were not a factor in her death(sarcasm), u dodgy irresponsible…doesn't a gossip hound have some resposibility to the truth?

  7. 7

    Re: Meggie246624 – Meggie is right, was going to say the same thing… A very key sentence was missing. Copy and Paste Perez, it isn't that hard.

  8. 8

    How can there be a funeral today when the autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow?
    Being Jewish is SHOULD be today but prob not.

  9. 9

    So yesterday your worthless "exclusive" sources told you drugs weren't involved, and today you're posting that drugs were involved? Maybe you should shut the hell up, idiot. You disrespect the recently dead? There is a special place below for you.

  10. 10

    I'm glad her mom saw her. Prayers to her family and friends. RIP Amy!

    There once was a blogger who lived in El Lay
    He hated on celebs and snorted meth all day
    One of the celebs though she was not gay
    Was beloved by the blogger back in the day
    A singer whose voice was absolute gold
    Had demons that took a strangling hold
    Said blogger kicked her when she was down
    Now he's showing off pictures of them all over town
    Pretending he always loved her to get more clicks
    But really he's just a total fucking dick.

    Just got done reading bbc.com For God's ake Perez. Do you need a writer for when you are unavailable? I got way more information off of their site. Do you researchers even peruse other sites? For instance, lots of nice tributes from Ron Wood of the Stones and others. What does your staff do — drink all weekend and can't post until late after it's all over the web? And where the hell are you? ONly thing you posted with any substance was your time with Amy which were all old. Does your staff know how to use google or read other sites across the world? You need some new employees. You are way behind, as per usual.

    Wow everyone lay off Perez Hilton, your all rubbishing his journalism yet your all signed up to his site.

    Amy's death is such a great loss to music and I just hope she will be remembered for her talent and not just the bad press she often attracted. My thoughts are with her family and close friends today. Amy you were one of the musical icons of my generation and I hope you can now finally find some peace. X

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – For goodness sake stop moaning, no one forces you to read all the latest news and gossip here so If you've found a better site use that one. No one likes a whinger! X

    I am so sorry that she could not break out of the bi-polar/addiction cycle. The world has lost an amazingly talented woman and I regret that she was not able to fully explore her talent and creativity because the mental and physical demons weighed her down. BP and addiction suck alone but when combined the combination is deadly. Artists like Amy are so rare and fragile. I knew it would end like this. So very sorry for her family. My heart goes out to them. Love you, Amy. R.I.P.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – bahahaha thats a good one… he does do that!!!

    RIP to Amy Winehouse and my prayers are with her family. It is sad to see a talent like that leave.

  17. 17

    May God bless and keep Amy and her family. Perez I know you loved her, ignore the nasty people. God bless xoxo

  18. 18

    Perez is one of the reasons she died. It was people like him who did nothing but write cruel things is the reason why she is gone today.

  19. 19

    Ok enough,,,,, she is dead ,move on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Time for that lohan skank to fall off of a fucking building or something…………….

  20. 20

    So sad beyond words. :( I hope more and more people including celebs see this as an eyopener… Having an addiction is not a joke.

  21. 21

    Re: TrannyTakesATumble2 – Wow man. Seriously, i find it disturbing that you would say that. Her death has nothing to do with Perez.

  22. 22

    How can they possibly have a funeral today when the body hasn't been autopsied. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

  23. 23

    Re: oxceranoid – How do you figure. Imagine sitting home fighting to stay straight. You Demons are calling but you are fighting them off knowing people care about you. Then you read some cruel thing some peice of shit low life blogger like pedophile PEEREZ wrote.

  24. 24

    I use to depend on this site for celeb gossip…now not so much. Wonder what you're up to lately? But it is typical Perez fashion to post a completely ridiculous post saying drugs aren't responsible, then the next day quote her parents as saying it was only a matter of time. Good lord you're an idiot.

  25. 25

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver
    that was good.

  26. 26

    Re: mgardner – Amy and her family are Jewish, and in our religion you are meant to have the body buried within 24 hours.

  27. 27

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver
    good one!
    and great way to express yourself

    only thng I will say about Amy's parents is
    that it's too bad they didn't take a lsesson from Jamie Spears, Britney's dad
    he did what he needed to do to make sure his daughter would stay alive
    even if it meant taking all control away from he
    blocking harmful people from her life
    controlling money so she couldn't buy drugs/alcohol
    I'm sure there is a lot he did that we don't know about
    he did whatever it took to make sure she stayed alive and he never gave up or waited for her to kill herself
    unlike Amy's family who had a very FATALISTIC attitude

    Re: Still_very_much_a_BULLY – Cyberbullies which is what you and the other posters cowardly hiding behind their computer screen, trashing Perez are in absolutely no postion be judging him or any blogger for their cruel remarks. You and the rest of the hypocrites are no better than what you are accusing him of being.

    You guys should focus on your own behaviour before judging his. FYI: calling someone a pedophile without proof is slander and you can (and should) be sued for it.

  30. 30

    Bury this filthy skank and be done with it

  31. 31

    Re: *Sloane – There's nothing her dad or mom could have done. It's up to the addict to get help.

  32. 32

    Rest In Peace Amy

  33. 33

    wow her poor parents :(

  34. 34

    you people need to stop attacking perez hes hurting too ..he did care about amy everyone did as self destructive as this girl was she seem to have a good heart . its a sad day that her death actually came . very very tragic and i know perez feels very sad inside.

    the message is clear drugs and alcohol will kill the rich or the poor over time or suddenly regardless she was a person a talented soul with passion for her art who didnt deserve to die this way…

    re eldridge cute poem

  35. 35

    Her parents are FINALLY talking? Wow.. it's been 24 hours since their daughter died.. are you upset it took them that long?

  36. 36

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Ha Ha Ha. DITTO!!!!!!!!

  37. 37

    Re: rachelinala – I agree..Perez is too busy kissing Aniston's and Obama's ass to take the time to research and write accurate blogs.

  38. 38

    Hmm, 3:30 am or 3:30 pm, being that we mention "afternoon" in the same breath? Or are we inventing sources and quotes again? Either way — sloppy. Time to hire an editor, old man!

    "noises coming from Amy's home on Saturday afternoon. She said, "At about 3:30am I heard crying from next door"

  39. 39

    YOU ARE SUCH AN IDIOT ! firsly if you are going to copy/paste a story please copy ALL of the information - her mum was referring to the last time she spoke to her daughter and Amy said " I LOVE YOU MUM" your quote makes NO sense - and also AMY'S PARENTS FINALLY SPEAK ??? jesusshe died less than 72 hours ago, i guess they had BETTER thinbgs to do/deal with than getting a quote for the press - you are an IDIOT !

  40. 40

    If Amy had lung problems, it would explain why she was losing her voice. Not just the drugs, but the smoking was doing damage.
    Such a sad and wasteful death.

  41. 41

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17

    inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to

    our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay

    expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46

    inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me

    $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get

    all this stuff, BidsGet.com

    Amy Winehouse died, and all anyone wants to talk about is Perez Hilton's journalism competency.

    I'll miss her, not because she was a fun trainwreck…she was a depressing trainwreck…but I really did like her music.
