Amy Winehouse's Family Releases Statement Regarding Inquest Results.

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


She just couldn't beat this.

Truly, such a tragedy.

In light of the news that Amy Winehouse lost her life earlier this year due to alcohol poisoning and build-up after a drinking binge, her family has released the following statement:

"It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy. We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away, it is likely a buildup of alcohol in her system over a number of days. The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time. She had started drinking again that week after a period of abstinence. It underlines how important our work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation is to us, to help as many young people and children as we can in her name. It means a lot to us and from the overwhelming messages of support we have had since Amy died, we know she meant a great deal to people all over the world. We want to thank everyone for that and for their continuing enthusiasm for the Foundation."

We can't even begin to imagine what they're going through right now, but we hope that they can find comfort in finally knowing what happened, and can use this to help those suffering from the disease of addiction.

May Amy R.I.P.

    "… after a period of abstinence"

    I think they meant to say "after a period of absinthe"

    What a bunch of losers. Good riddance Amy!

  2. 2

    Enough about this minor celebrity. She was famous for being a druggie and boose-hound. What's to talk about?

    "it is likely a buildup of alcohol in her system over a number of days." Can I give you a simple "bullshit". It does not take "a number of days" to get drunk and die from alcohol poisoning.

  4. 4

    Remember when her father said she was clean? He's an enabler, just like Dina Lohan.

  5. 5

    Such beauty, brains and amazing talent lost far too young! We really need to start understanding alcoholism a little more to save the other talents if we can. "Egomaniac with and inferiority complex.." that's how a friend of mine describes alcoholics.

    What a waste!!!!!!!

    I don't feel sorry for addicts. It is their own fault.

    …And I bet all of the previous negative comments were written by people who claim to be "Christians," (or believers in another higher, loving power, be it Shiva, Mohammed, etc.). What hypocrites and liars (or losers at practicing your religion) –being judgmental and superior in their presumptuous attitudes. Just go away, you small-minded, mean-spirited human beings. If it is impossible for you to say something nice, or at least show some compassion, then just don't stay here. Don't spread your criticism and negativity here, where it is inappropriate, particularly at this time. If you can not say something nice or, if it has to be critical, *constructive* then go and practice your religion somewhere. you need it.
