Drugs to Blame For Amy Winehouse Death?

by at . Comments

Even her biggest fans likely agree that if Amy Winehouse died from something other than a drug overdose, it would come as something of a surprise.

Tabloid reports that her last 36 hours were spent in a drug-induced blur are therefore easy to believe, but nothing has been established conclusively.

Crazed Wino

A source told Britain's The People the late Rehab singer, who was found dead Saturday at 27, was seen buying the narcotics at a London bar Friday.

Fueled by whiskey, ecstasy, ketamine, cocaine and heroin, reports say, "Amy seemed determined to have a big one," an insider told the tabloid.

"Getting out of it was clearly her main priority of the night," the source adds. "None of us know who was with her into the early hours of Saturday."

Should we believe this? Not so fast.

Amy's doctor had just visited the singer Friday, a day before she died, and was reportedly "happy with her condition," an insider told The UK Sun.

Of course, a lot can happen in a day.

"When he left on Friday night he had no concerns. Less than 24 hours later she was found dead," the insider told the paper. "Amy's health has been very fragile and she has been having a series of checkups."

Amy's parents, Mitch and Janis, have shot down reports of their daughter's drug-fueled demise, saying they don't think drugs were responsible.

Some friends of the late singer are speculating Winehouse might have intentionally overdosed after a quarrel with her boyfriend Reg Traviss, after he'd found out about recent conversations she’d had with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

The Winehouse family flatly denied that took place.

Asked about reports that Amy had bought "cocaine, ketamine and ecstasy hours before she died," her parents said that it was all "nonsense."

Police confirm that no signs of drugs were spotted in her house, and her doctor reportedly did give the "all clear" the night before her death.

So what else would have done it? Instead, some believe Amy's passing was brought on by a massive seizure, with alcohol as the catalyst.

"The hardcore drugs completely wrecked Amy's nervous system ... She gave up [hard drugs] a while ago but she was still drinking heavily."

"That could bring on seizures."

Amy had been suffering from seizures regularly and, despite being warned by doctors, kept drinking. Still, we repeat, none of this is proven.

We'll find out more when toxicology reports come in. In the meantime, we hope that her parents, friends, and fans band together in support.

I am totally discusted by the nasty, vicious, iggnorant comments made by some of the people on this! God help any of you that ever come into contact with addiction, be it your families, friends or god forbid children, i dont even know why you would take the time to write something so horrible, how proud you must be that you all live in that perfect world that no one else lives in!!! Amy Winehouse was a child in the arms of addiction, this can happen to anyone and does, RIP Beautiful Amy.


Great voice.Shame.R.I.P Amy.


If SHE was molested as a child I am sure her parents are/were aware of it. Why didn't they try to help her? I never heard of her before her death and am sickened every time I see those damned tattoos. Do women have to do that to their bodies? There's nothing pretty about any of them.


European and American culture becomes more like hell everyday.


when big talent is combined with big pain and ability to express it through your talent, something great can come of it...in her case it was her second album, the expression of her pain made her a star, brought her a success if u start to define yourself with this kind of success it is very hard to really want to overcome the pain itself, unconcioulsy it can become a reason why one never wants to really recover, because at some level the person risks loosing his/her greatness...unfortunatelly tallent in a peaceful soul doesnt have that kind of intensive touch....


Whats the big woof about She is relatively unknown in the U.S.! Not one person that I asked could name even one song that she did. A few people actually heard of her.
And please DO NOT compare her to Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison.
