We most likely will never know exactly why or how Amy Winehouse died.

Her dad Mitch Winehouse, however, believes he may know what happened.

According to Mitch, Amy may have suffered from an overdose of an anti-anxiety drug that resulted in a seizure during detox.

During an interview with Anderson Cooper, Mitch says:

"Everything Amy did, she did to excess. She drank to excess and did detox to excess."

As we previously told you, no illegal drugs were found in Amy's system when she died.

Hopefully we will know more when a final cause of death will be determined after an official inquest next month in London.

    From years of abuse as a crackhead…..she slowly killed herself…

    NO PITY HERE!



  2. 2

    Why the need to explain the death of someone who wanted and deserved to die young?



  3. 3

    Re: J Live – I don't see the need to explain her death either. But to say that she wanted and deserved to die is harsh. I don't know what it was like to be her - do you?



  4. 4

    I cant believe you still have the balls to write about her and pretend you give or gave a shit about her after her dad called you out like that you low life bottom feeding scum hypocrite.

    Re: rosebud99 – Amy did what it took to kill herself and she finally accomplished that. In that regard, she did deserve it.

    Not that she was a bad person. Just a very sick little girl that never recovered from childhood traumas.

    Her psyche never healed.

    Whatever happened, it was most likely related to her lifestyle over the past few years. There's no avoiding that & it probably doesn't help anyone to suggest otherwise. There's no point in trying to pretend that massive drug & alcohol abuse has no consequences. It's very sad & wasteful. She had way more to bring to the table with her singing. She made a massively silly choice a few years a go that turned her into a junkie, but that doesn't mean she deserved to die or wanted to.

    she died because she was a saint, blah, what bullshit.
    she was a fucking crackhead, he should've cared more for her and not her fame when she was alive.

    I guess she did not know she was going to be missed so much. Her addiction to whatever took her to another level,and it was a fact that she was going to die sooner or later. What it bother me is that "incarcerated Blake"! did not have a pass from jail for her funeral!That asshole I bet he is coming with some freaking book about his relationship with Amy so he can get rich to buy more drugs.

    PEOPLE….I of course do not know any medical specifics of the late great Amy's medical situation. What I am an expert on is epilepsy. This condition can come upon you at anytime, young or old. Can manifest it's self in different ways and is many time satanized as the work of the devil. Thank you Pat Boone and whatever MD school you graduated from. Please research epilepsy as chances are you will at some point effect your life through yourself or a loved on……Let's all give Amy a pass…who knows and who is going to tell……music is STILL great…Thanks..Amy

    I think a lot of addicts have trouble recovering because of the bias against them in society. Everyone in their lifetime has participated in addictive behavior, whether it's something serious like drugs or something minor like drinking too much coffee. We are so quick to condemn these people when in reality, we could all fall victim to addiction just as easily. Some people get out, some people can't, but getting angry at those who act out in an unhealthy manner just makes things worse. Who knows what was REALLY going on in her life. The media certainly isn't a reliable source. Amy Winehouse didn't deserve to die, she didn't ask to be addicted to drugs, and she wasn't on any when she died. Her health gave out due to a life of crippling addiction. She should have been hospitalized or at least had some home care. Detox CAN kill you. If the addictive substance is removed from the body too quickly, it can shut down. In short, if we judge addicts they will be less likely to seek help. Despite some addicts apparent "I don't give a fuck" attitude, no one like's dying from the inside out.

    RIP Amy Winehouse, you life ended tragically and I hope your legacy will inspire kids not to experiment with deadly substances.

    And pardon the typos.

    HER DEATH WAS A SURPRISE FOR NOBODY, IT WAS A SOON-TO-BE FACT…
    STOP DISCUSSING HER DEATH AND LET HER REST IN PEACE

    She was under Monarch mind control and murdered.

    I don't give a fack about how this hoe fackin bit it. Quit fackin talking about it already.

    probably stopped drinking, started going through DTs, took her haldol which lowers your seizure threshold…then seized. Delirium tremens will kill you, I've seen it more than once

    To dismiss Amy because she had a disease would be just plain criminal. Amy was extremely talented and extremely addicted. I can only imagine what levels of hell she went through on this earth just to stay alive. The paps in London are 10x what they are here and they drove her nuts. She had alot to deal with to say the least. Let her rest in peace and stop pointing fingers, she DIDN"T deserve to die and to say she did, is beyond sub-human !

    Its pretty rare to die from a seizure, and they would be able to tell from the autopsy so most likely it isn't that. The most dangerous part of having a seizure is hitting your head, or crashing a car. There are extremely rare occurrences of unexplained seizure deaths but it is usually when people have mental retardation, autism, or extreme other forms of illnesses.

    I'm sorry for her death, but its doubtful that a seizure caused it unless she had a history of them.
