Was Amy Winehouse Planning To Adopt??

| Filed under: Amy WinehouseSad Sad


Whoa. This is something we would have never expected.

Amy Winehouse was allegedly preparing to adopt a 10-year-old girl from the island of St. Lucia.

The girl, named Dannika Augustine, and her grandmother say they met the singer during one of Amy's visits to the island. Dannika was living in poverty with her single mom when Amy met her and took an interest in her.

Her grandmother Marjorie says that Amy told her a few weeks ago that she was planning to return to the island sometime next month. She said:

"Amy wanted to have a child so bad. If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process. There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her."

Dannika was devastated when she heard the news. Her parents had already signed off on the adoption. She said:

"Amy was already my mother. I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me … She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me."

So sad.

It boggles our mind that Amy was really planning on adopting a child. She had a big heart, but she certainly didn't seem like she was in the right mind to take care of another human being. We really feel for Dannika.

  2. 2

    I still can't believe she's gone. She loved everyone but herself.

  3. 3

    Thank you tee em zee again.

  4. 4

    Oh my God, I never wished her anything bad. Imagine somebody like Amy, unstable and addicted were to be allowed to adopt a child. Who would have been responsible for that child?

  5. 5

    That story was entirely made up by the MIrror and debunked this morning by Gossip Cop!

  6. 6

    ok..theres no way in hell anyone would let a kid live with her..

  7. 7


  8. 8

    Oh please, enough with these ridiculous stories. Like any adoption agency in their right mind would let her adopt a child.

  9. 9

    I read that on Tee eM Zee too, Perez.

  10. 10

    Stupid question This filthy pig is dead and torched

  11. 11

    The only thing this bitch could have adopted was a NEW DRUG.

  12. 12

    You didnt learn a thing from my visit did you FatBoy.
    You stole this story long after it was proven a lie

  13. 13

    seems like a big lie /cry for attention to me

  14. 14

    Just keep riding this story Mario, you and all the news outlets are like kids in a candy store. Oh so tragic, one phone call away from sobriety, one legal signature away from being a mom. It is not relevant to keep pumping and feeding the gossip beast with Amy's next future move which will never happen. It is overly morbid to keep breathing life into someone's death with false stories.

  15. 15

    Mario, you need to sort your shit out, almost everything I read on here lately is something I read at least a day before on another site.

  16. 16

    No doubt she had a lot of love to give to a child, but I don't know if she was in any right condition to be able to properly take care of one at that point. Maybe later on in her life, but not then. I feel bad for the girl. :(

  17. 17

    A rep for Winehouse confirms exclusively to Gossip Cop, “There’s no truth to it.”
    Maybe some media outlets should adopt better fact-checking skills.

  18. 18

    ……..but you would know, right, Perez, because you were such good friends???

  19. 19

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsGet.com

    This sounds like crap to me…

  21. 21

    And so the absolute unadulterated selfishness of a celebrity is revealed in all its disgusting and dillusional splendor. To think that she was willing to bring a child into that chaos of seddiness and drug & drink riddled squalor is almost impossible to aprehend. And with her money she wouldve been able to do sell as well, because as everybody knows, today, a celebs mobey can buy a human life. Which all means her death has proably saved the life of whatever child wouldve fallen into her snipers target. Its sickening.

    who gives a F! she is a loser. made bad choices by doing drugs turning herself into a junky or a loser which ever comes first. most of the time these people have low self esteem and want to be accepted.

  24. 24

    Bullshit story. This family is trying to get money from her parents and brother who are the rightful heirs to Amy's estate.

  27. 27

    Strikes me as more than a tad apocryphal. Amy could barely take care of herself, let alone a child. Color me skeptical.

  28. 28

    This is BS. Nobody in their right mind would allow somebody in her condition to begin the care of another human being. May she rest in peace but that would equate to child endangerment. I don't buy it.

  29. 29

    Let's see, could the parents, I mean the child, have hopes of being left in Amy's will? Sounds like a scam to me! I don't have anything negative to say about Amy
    Winehouse, but who would give her a child to care for?

  30. 30

    how can she adopt a child if she can't even take care of herself. what adoption agency will allow amy winehosue to ever have children?

  31. 31

    Big fan of Amy's here but sorry, there's no way in hell that Amy would have been able to adopt in the condition she was in prior to her death.

  32. 32

    Thank God she didn't get a chance to ruin another life with her instability!!!

    Re: HairPlugs for Hilton – You can bet that mario will be reporting this as 'breaking news' in the next few days…

  34. 7tizz says – reply to this


    I heard Amy was also planning to adopt a pizza.

    Sorry Mario - I call bullshit on this story. Looks like they're coming out of the woodwork in record time now. Don't you have a screening process before printing crap like this? I've never seen a gossip blog or publication with as many retractions as your site. It's called quality - learn it.

  35. 35

    Wow!! She is stunning in that picture. Drugs and alcohol really ravaged her.

  36. 36

    What a great photo of Amy! She was much better looking without all the eye makeup and that ridiculous beehive. Her teeth were atrocious, but that's easily fixed - or rather, COULD have been easily fixed…

  37. 37

    Either way, the kid would still be an orphan….

  38. 38

    If you're going to copy and paste from other sites, at least have the brains to do it ON TIME or at least stop yourself from doing it after a story has already been addressed by a celebrity's reps. I also can't imagine that someone who claims to have been a "friend" of Winehouse's wouldn't know whether this was true or false. You're such a poser.

  39. 39

    old story and probably a bunch of bullsh**. No one else knew about it…. NEXT WEEK, Some shark will file a LAWSUIT on behalf of this poor girl and her grandmother to get money to support the girl in the custom of which Amy Winehouse lived in london…

  40. 40

    Who cares about this DEAD junkie…on to the next story please.

  41. 41

    If this story is true then that little girl doesn't know how narrowly she escaped. Amy was the epitome of selfishness and she would have been a terrible mother. She would destroy any child making them an addict like herself.

  42. 42

    That would have been horrific.

  43. 43

    that would have been awful.. she was not even responsible enough to even keep herself alive… who the eff would give her a kid =/

  44. 44

    Not trying to be mean but lucky she didnt!. I dont think she was fit to be a mother.

  45. 45

    Omg..stfu Perez.. geez you are just milking her death as much as you can..some fucking friend..

  46. 46

    Jesus people, why do you come on this site to criticize every article put up here, and then bash Perez. If you are unhappy with the website because other gossip sites get to the story's first, then why are you still on here? You obviously still like this website if you're constantly on it..

  47. 47

    She was a great singer
