It's easy to forget - given the witness tampering / bribery / public meltdowns / jailhouse drug smuggling they've been involved in - that Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil were busted in Norway back in October for drug possession.
It seems so minor now, but word on the street has it that the six-time Grammy Award nominee has to drag her beehive all the way there to appear in court this February, after the court there ruled the case cannot be tried without her present.
Said a rep for Amy Winehouse: "The Gulating court (in Bergen) sent us a letter dated December 18, 2007, stating that ... this case cannot be tried in absentia."
Amy Winehouse is Norway bound! Not for a concert but for court!
Winehouse reportedly claims she was tricked by the Norwegian police into signing a confession. Man, those damn Norwegians can be so tricky if you aren't careful.
Now that she's not visiting Blake Fielder-Civil in jail for the time being, at least her schedule is wide open. On the flip side, the chances of Amy making it to February without being jailed or overdosing in the UK? Not necessarily a sure bet!
