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.


honestly i was not know her but after her news and after her death i knew her but i dont feel sad cuz if the drugs are the reason for her death it's her problem cuz she is a dope addict


oh no!she is gone too soon.sorry for the family.


I'm only going to say this to all musicians out there, especially to lead singers....drugs, alcohol, and performing on stage don't mix. I saw the clip of Amy's performance how loaded she was and singing and around of boo's by the fans. She sounded so terrible...why...she was so high...that's an example. Rest In Peace Amy Winehouse. and yes you're right about Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, but there were others. How about Elvis Presley and Kevin Dubrow from "Quiet Riot".


She was incredible in every way:) Incredibly talented, incredibly soulfull, incredibly beautiful, incredibly fun(when you got to see that side) and incredibly troubled:( I knew a girl who had the same types of problems, and addiction problems are EXTREMELY HARD to kick. I'm not going to speculate on Amy, She is gone now and She was only getting started- It Is TERRIBLY TRAGIC!!!!! If this was how She died, what I saw my friend go through, well my friend She was at deaths' door you could see it. But my friend well She needed the drugs just to keep from being in pain. I saw her for months like that until She got arrested. And then now She still isn't clean. It Is HELL 4 Her!!!!! Don't judge under any condition. Amy is gone, we love her and will miss her, hopefully any pain She felt She doesn't have to feel anymore. A HUGE LOSS!!!!!


lets not jump to comclusions..e1 assumed corey haim died of drugs but that was not the case..lets wait and see what the reports are but really it doesnt matter..just another wasted talent


Another tragic hollywood induced but (most likely) drugs and alcohol. It is sad and occurs far too often. Fame and money dont buy immunity or immortality. *sigh* And susanne, addiction is a powerful thing. Most of the time these people unfortunitely dont want help


I couldn't agree with SwzIAZItIz if I tried but it is sad to watch what these people do the one thing God gave to us for free and not take good care of it on a constant basis. These people who do drugs chose to pick it up and do just like a cigarette the cigarette sits there and never says a word but someone choses to pick it up even though it is bad for their body. But if she decided not to get the help she knew she needed well there isn't a thing anyone can do about it but herself. I feel something happened to her when she was a child and she never spoke about but tried to bury it and it simply didn't work. May she finally RIP and never be in pain again.


This is sad. But if drugs were the reason for her death. The only responsible one was her. People need to realize that we just have one life to live. our life is not given, its borrowed. So throwing your life away for something soo stupid is pure idiocy. Still my prayers go out to her family. R.I.P. girl!


Hey Pamelamarie- I'm sure some could have helped her. Does this sound familar... "Misery Likes Company"??? But who are you to incinuate Amy passed away due to an addiction. Do you even know Anything about it? You don't shut those out... EVER... Its extremly hard to get sober, help from someone is important, you can't "Juat Say No".Don't be a PRUDE!


My prayers go out to Amy's family and friends :( I was very saddened to hear this news, it's a shame. What a beautiful young woman, and now has unfortunately lost her life! May you rest in peace Amy:)
