Guess junkies birds of a strung-out feather really do OD flock together.

Now that her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is in jail, Amy Winehouse seems to be spending more time with Pete Doherty - and her father is not happy.

In fact, seeing the often-arrested Babyshambles singer out with his daughter made dad Mitch Winehouse go berzerk, he admitted to Grazia magazine.

"I do worry about people like Pete Doherty. He's a scumbag," a distraught Mitch Winehouse said. "I flipped when I saw him sitting with Amy backstage at her Brixton gig. I went crazy. My wife thought I was going to have a heart attack."

Some sources reported that Pete Doherty was present when Amy Winehouse overdosed on drugs in August. Regardless, they are hanging out a lot nowadays.

The diminutive jazz-pop diva, 24, has struggled mightily since her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was arrested for alleged witness tampering in November.

She also canceled all 2007 shows, and mother Janis Winehouse wrote an open letter published by the media, begging Amy to come home and get clean.

"I know the real problem here is that she's depressed about [Blake Fielder-Civil] being in prison," Mitch Winehouse said. "I wasn't in favor of the marriage, but they are married and I will support them. And he's shown while he's been in prison a level of maturity that he didn't have before."

While admitting to the magazine that Amy is "not very well," Mitch Winehouse said he can't force his daughter - who was recently nominated for six Grammy Awards for her smash hit album, Back to Black - into rehab.

"Believe me, my first instinct is to get hold of her, pick her up and take her back to my house and lock her away," he said. "But I've spoken to the finest drug counselors in the world, and they've said that is exactly the wrong thing to do."

Amy Winehouse is reportedly going to be questioned by police after she was implicated in Blake Fielder-Civil's bribery and witness tampering plot.

According to The Sun (U.K.), Amy Winehouse will be interviewed by detectives this week, to establish if she is somehow involved in her hubby's scheme.

They have already seized phone records, bank receipts and computer hardware from Amy. Blake Fielder-Civil is accused of trying to bribe a key witness in another case - in which assault charges were being brought against Fielder-Civil.

Was Amy Winehouse involved in the witness tampering plot that got Blake Fielder-Civil arrested? And if so, was she lucid enough to remember?

A source tells The Sun: "When police received their initial information the inquiry centred on Blake, his friend Brown and the original victim in the case."

"But after seizing a number of documents, it seems there is forensic evidence that may tie Amy directly to the plot. When you think about it, as soon as the figure of £200,000 emerged, the finger of suspicion started to point in her direction."

What, you mean a former deadbeat music "assistant" and heroin junkie like Blake Fielder-Civil doesn't have £200,000 kicking around? Stunning revelation.

Of course, Amy Winehouse is one of those people that probably would prefer to be in jail than be apart from her precious Fielder-Civil. In fact, she might even be tying herself to the plot on purpose as part of Prison Break-style escape plan!

Blaaaaaaaake! Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaake!

A few days after her mother, Janis Winehouse begged her daughter to come home in an open letter, Amy Winehouse found support in her father, Mitch Winehouse.

Amy and Mitch headed out together in London Tuesday, reportedly to visit her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, in jail. It's always good to have some bonding time.

Wino in Trouble

Amy and Mitch Winehouse pay a visit to her incarcerated spouse.

Winehouse, who has been struggling mightily with drug abuse and the jailing of Blake Fielder-Civil, has come under attack from many critics, not the least of which being her own parents. But perhaps they've patched things up (or tried to).

After all, visiting hours in jail are always able to conjure up some good times. This is the kind of family outing we always expected Britney Spears and her little sons to embark on, had she stayed with K-Fed. We gone go see Daddy, y'all!

Amy Winehouse's estranged mother, Janis Winehouse, penned an open letter to her daughter, 24, urging her to come home and seek help. She writes:

"We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped, unless you come to us â€" anything we tried would be in vain. So this letter is my way of making sure you know ... that all you have to do is come home to us, Amy, and we'll do everything in our power to get you well again. After all, you are still my baby and you always will be. So just pick up that phone and tell me what's troubling you... Wherever you are, whatever you need, we're here for you day and night."

Blake and Wino

The full version of Amy's mother's letter was published in the UK's News of the World. It's very nice, heartfelt and, of course, likely to fall upon deaf ears.

Amy Winehouse looking pretty coherent... relatively speaking of course.

The singer has faced some hard times lately. She nixed her tour to support her incarcerated husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who is being held without bail after allegedly trying to buy off a witness in a pending assault case against him.

Winehouse was recently spotted wandering the streets of London in the middle of the night in just a bra and jeans, looking for her dealer having been asleep.

In a recent statement, Amy Winehouse â€" who nabbed six Grammy nominations in spite of her personal woes â€" apologized to fans for the recent troubles.

"Thank you for all your kind letters and emails," she said. "I am grateful for all your support."

After enduring hard drugs, and times, of late, Amy Winehouse and Kanye West enjoyed some good news Thursday, earning 14 Grammy nominations total.

Kanye West, 30, whose mother, Donda West, died in November after undergoing plastic surgery at the (shady) hands of Dr. Jan Adams, earned eight nominations, including for the prestigious album of the year and rap album of the year.

Ready to Work Out

Amy Winehouse, 24, who has battled health and substance abuse problems and the incarceration of husband Blake Fielder-Civil, picked up six nods, including album of the year, song of the year and record of the year, and best new artist.

Winehouse was the subject of ridicule even on what could have been a positive day for the British jazz crooner. Announcing the Grammy nods, George Lopez joked, "Can somebody wake her up around 6 this afternoon and tell her?"

"Rehab" is Amy Winehouse's biggest hit. And where she needs to go.

Foo Fighters, Jay-Z, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and T-Pain were the other top earners with five nominations each. Artists with four each included Akon, Rihanna, Tim McGraw, John Newton, Ne-Yo, Rihanna, and Chris Daughtry.

In a race for record of the year with Amy Winehouse ("Rehab") are the likes of Beyoncé ("Irreplaceable"), Foo Fighters ("The Pretender"), Rihanna ("Umbrella") and Justin Timberlake ("What Goes Around Comes Around").

Looking like she's been doing crystal meth with Britney Spears and Howie Day, a distraught and strung-out Amy Winehouse was spotted wondering the streets of London at 5:45 this morning wearing just her bra, jeans and no shoes.

The Daily Mail (U.K.) reported that Amy Winehouse, who recently canceled all her tour dates, had emerged from a friend's house in East London early this morning looking quite distressed, wandering the streets aimlessly and near tears.

Warning: The celebrity photo below is extremely graphic ...

Heroin Addict

Amy Winehouse: Sexy as hell... if you're into heroin and meth addicts.

A witness told the Daily Mail, "She came out of the house, walked down the drive and wandered around the pavement for a bit. She looked upset and agitated but there was no obvious reason for her to come outside. It was weird."

Yes, you could say that. A rep for Winehouse offered this explanation, "Amy had been fast asleep and heard a noise. She then went outside to investigate."

Loosely translated, that means, "Amy had called her crack and meth dealer after her supply had run out, then went outside when she thought she heard him."

Any Winehouse is clearly not responding well to the absence of her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who was recently jailed and is being held without bond on charges of witness tampering in conjunction with a previous arrest for assault.

On the other hand, we've seen plenty similarly absurd Winehouse photos when he was a free man. One thing's for sure: We'll stay tuned to this train wreck watch.

After a trouble-plagued year, Amy Winehouse is canceling all her remaining live and promotional appearances, citing doctors orders and saying how she can't perform without her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, at her side.

"I can't give it my all onstage without my Blake," Amy Winehouse wrote on her official site. "I'm sorry, but I don't want to do shows half-heartedly; I love singing. My husband is everything to me and without him it's just not the same."

Winehouse in St. Lucia

Blake Fielder-Civil was jailed and is being held without bail after allegedly trying to bribe a witness in his trial on assault charges stemming from a 2006 fight.

The decision of Amy Winehouse, 24, to cancel all shows comes "on the instruction of her doctor," according to a statement released by her record label:

"The rigours involved in touring and the emotional strain that Amy has been under in recent weeks have taken their toll. In the interests of her health and well-being, Amy has been ordered to take complete rest and deal with her issues."

Earlier this month, at her first show since Fielder-Civil, 25, was busted, Amy Winehouse delivered a shaky performance, was booed and stormed off stage.

The cancellations cap off a rather turbulent year for the singer. She married Blake Fielder-Civil in May after being engaged only a few months, then struggled through a brutal series of health and myriad substance-abuse issues.

In August, Amy was hospitalized and treated for exhaustion, canceled a number of tour dates and checked into a "retreat" with Fielder-Civil.

In October, she was arrested in Norway on a charge of marijuana possession, paid a fine but appealed it, saying she had not understood the charges.

If you can call it that. We're not really sure.

Wiping away a stream of tears, Amy Winehouse could manage only this bizarre expression as her incarcerated husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was denied bail.

Amy in a Blue Dress

Amy Winehouse: A face made for radio.

Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, is being charged with conspiracy involving alleged witness tampering in his upcoming assault trial. He will spend Christmas in jail awaiting a January 18 preliminary hearing that will determine if he stands trial. Should the case go to trial, Judge David Robson said he was "penciling in early June."

As he was led away, Blake Fielder-Civil held his hand to his ear like a telephone and mouthed, "I'll call you," through the glass of the defendant's box. Amy Winehouse waved and blew him two kisses. Ah, the glory of true love.

The troubled singer, 24, arrived at Snaresbrook Crown Court at 10:40 a.m., wearing a long-sleeved black dress and a yellow scarf around her beehive.

Outside the court, police were forced to usher away a crowd of about 30 women ... all of whom were dressed as Amy Winehouse.

Inside, Amy Winehouse sat in the court's front row, right next to Fielder-Civil's younger brother and one seat down from his mother, Georgette Fielder-Civil.

She was accompanied - and shielded from the many reporters' view - by a burly man who identified himself only as "a family friend."

The Back to Black singer spoke briefly to her mother-in-law and to some of her husband's lawyers, all the while checking for signs of Blake himself.

When he finally appeared, just before 11 a.m., he was smiling and winking.

"I love you," he mouthed to his wife, asking, "Are you all right?" She nodded.

Winehouse watched as the judge agreed to hear Blake Fielder-Civil's case for being granted bail in chambers because of "intense scrutiny from the press."

The rest of the two-hour hearing continued in private.

When the proceeding was over, at 12:30 p.m., a grim-looking Winehouse refused to speak to the press as she hopped into a car with blacked-out windows.

Looking distraught - likely over the incarceration of husband Blake Fielder-Civil - singer Amy Winehouse took comfort in a special fan at her concert yesterday in Blackpool, England. The young fan showed up in a Winehouse-style beehive. Yay!

You've got to admire a youngster for trying to walk in her role model's shoes. The only thing making this kid's Amy Winehouse impression subpar - a lack of tattoos, smeared makeup, blood and track marks from repeated heroin injections.
