    She only made two albums while she was alive and she didn't/couldn't tour much. But all the albums are still selling including the third posthumous one.

    £1m on drugs in three years, a £500,000 hotel bill and £1,000 a month on her kittens: How Amy Winehouse squandered £10 million


    By Alison Boshoff
    PUBLISHED: 01:30, 31 March 2012 UPDATED: 01:30, 31 March 2012





    Amy Winehouse lavished money on her then-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil

    Probate documents are notoriously dull — giving just the final, dry summation of an individual’s monetary worth, and setting out how their money will be divided up.
    In the case of Amy Jade Winehouse, who died after a booze binge last July, they are, however, quite baffling.

    The singer, who was 27, left an estate worth £4,257,580, which was reduced to £2,944,554 after debts and taxes were paid.
    Since the Rehab singer did not leave a will, that money will, by default, be divided between Amy’s divorced parents Mitch and Janis Winehouse.
    Everyone expected Mitch and Janis to benefit, since Amy was widely, if incorrectly, thought to have named them in a will which her lawyers drew up and asked her to sign in 2009.

    The fact that it was never signed is just one small symptom of the chaos that engulfed Amy’s life.
    But what is odd indeed is the relative paucity of her legacy.

    For it is widely accepted in the music business that this enormously talented young woman, whose second album was a smash hit in the UK and America, was worth considerably more.

    The Sunday Times Rich List thought she was worth £10 million – but a friend of her manager tells me he thinks she may have been worth closer to £15 million.
    And yet there is a comparatively modest sum to be passed on. So modest, in fact, that her father Mitch has gone back to driving his cab.
    He runs the Amy Winehouse Foundation — a charity set up in her name after her death to help fund charities for young people — part-time.

    Rather extraordinarily, the charity was launched without any cash from Amy’s fortune, as Mitch seems to have been waiting to see what, if anything, she had left at the end of her life.
    So what happened to Amy’s money? A friend connected to her management company says, bluntly, that she spent it all — on drugs, on men, and on ‘friends’ who said they needed her.
    She said: ‘Before Amy died, money was being leeched off her left, right and centre. It was like taking money off a baby when it came to Amy — she couldn’t stop giving it away. Mitch knew that most of it had probably been spent already.’
    It’s a view echoed by her friend Alex Foden, a hairdresser and, for a time, fellow drug addict.

    If Amy wanted to give £2,000 to a friend who had a hernia, for example, as she once did, she'd just ask her father to turn up with an envelope of cash

    Amy, who lived with him in East London for a year, paid for his drugs, his friends’ drugs, his attempts at rehab and his rent. And he says she spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on family and friends.
    ‘She’d invite her fans off the street. She sent me to rehab every time,’ says Alex.
    ‘She was selfless. She didn’t care about money or anything like that.’
    Indeed, the picture painted is of alarmingly reckless spending which seems to be very much of a part with her personality.
    Her passion for giving away money appears almost a direct match for her enthusiasm for drugs and alcohol. Evidently, it just made her feel good.
    Amy in 2004. She would blow £20,000 in an afternoon at Selfridges on dresses

    (One source close to her management team says she was also known as a ‘soft touch’ when it came to any charitable campaigns. ‘If you asked her, she would do it. You just had to name it,’ he said.)
    At the time of her death, there was very little fortune left that could be readily traced.

    She was the director of numerous companies — Goal Music Productions Ltd, CW Touring Ltd, AW Promotions Ltd, Essney Ltd, Cherry Westfield Ltd and Lioness Records Ltd.

    However, only one company out of this clutch had more than a few thousand pounds to its name in the most recent accounts filed, and that was Cherry Westfield.
    It showed a £2.3 million cash float, which had sat unmolested in its accounts for two years — a sum, apparently unconsidered amid the chaotic whirl of her life.
    The theory until this week was that there was a large fortune salted away elsewhere, tied up in investments and trusts, chiefly in the UK.
    However as probate proves, these are less extensive than everyone imagined, amounting to only a further £2 million.
    One of Amy’s major assets was the ten-bedroom house in Camden Square she was living in at the time of her death.
    That was bought in her name and the name of her father back in May 2010 for £1.8 million.

    Records show that there was a mortgage from Coutts Bank.
    Again, this seems surprising. Didn’t Amy have enough money to buy her home outright? The house is now being used as a base for her charity foundation.
    However, the joint mortgage gives the clue to the arrangement by which all of Amy’s affairs were managed: Mitch simply took care of it all.
    If Amy wanted to give £2,000 to a friend who had a hernia, for example, as she once did, she’d just ask her father to turn up with an envelope of cash.
    When she wanted to keep kittens — which she did — she would simply ask Mitch to fork out some money from her trust to pay the enormous bills she ran up: according to him, she managed to spend more than £1,000 a month on them.
    Mitch tried to protect her, but still he allowed her to spend to levels which would certainly strike an ordinary person as excessive.
    She would blow £20,000 in an afternoon at Selfridges on dresses, for instance — but in Amy’s world this counted as fairly small change. And her lifestyle, with a permanent retinue of bodyguards, was very expensive.
    'She was selfless. She didn't care about money or anything like that,' said friend Alex Foden

    The bodyguards cost £250 a day each and she had up to half a dozen of them.
    An extraordinary ‘working’ holiday in St Lucia three years ago — which stretched to about a year and a half — cost her £2,000 a night during the five months of it she stayed in the luxury resort of Le Sport.
    The bill for spa treatments alone was £6,000.
    A record company source said he thought that hotel stay cost her at least £500,000.
    And she didn’t just spend money on herself.
    Amy was generous to a fault.

    In St Lucia, she was in the habit of hiring all the horses offered for rent on the beach all day in case any of her friends wanted to ride with her.

    She spent an enormous amount via her company Lioness Records on launching Dionne Bromfield, a young London singer who became her protege after Bromfield’s family introduced the teenager to Amy’s manager.
    Apparently ‘well upwards of £500,000’ of Amy’s money disappeared into that project.
    Her former husband Blake Fielder-Civil was apparently adept at milking her for money, asking for £150 ‘for a cab’ whenever she called and said she wanted to see him.
    It is widely assumed she funded both their drug habits for years, too.

    Within three weeks of their marriage in 2007 she had a near-fatal overdose.
    And her spending on drugs, although never fully quantified, must have been enormous.
    Her heroin and cocaine habit in the days when she was using drugs — she stopped around 2008 — was in the nature of £1,000 a day.
    She might have spent £1 million or more on drugs alone between 2006 and 2008.

    In total, she gave her friend Alex Foden £130,000 to put himself through rehab for the drug habit which they had nurtured together.
    Fielder-Civil, meanwhile, was given a £250,000 pay-off in their 2009 divorce, but by this time it was clear that something had to be done about the rush of money from her accounts.
    She agreed to cede control of her fortune to her parents, and signed over her rights to it early in 2009 when Mitch visited her in St Lucia on that bizarre holiday.
    Amy agreed ‘articles of association’ which gave her parents shares and voting rights in her companies, including Cherry Westfield.
    From that point on at least one of her parents, most usually Mitch, sometimes Janis, had to agree to any decisions made.
    Her heroin and cocaine habit - in the days when she was using drugs - was in the nature of £1,000 a day

    She could no longer make payments or loans, hire staff, change bank arrangements or appoint a director without their permission.
    By that time she was no longer addicted to drugs, and Blake was off the scene, but there were fears that she might go back to either at any time.
    And although Amy managed to shed her addiction to drugs before her stay in St Lucia, the problems with alcohol which followed were severe.
    Visitors to a hotel she stayed in were surprised to see her drinking shots of tequila at breakfast-time: she was later photographed apparently crawling on all fours at one of the restaurants.
    The album Lioness, which was released after her death last year, tells its own eloquent story.
    For, despite many months of work in various recording studios from 2008 up to her death, only two songs on it are recent. Just one of those was recorded in St Lucia.
    From 2009 onwards, it is suggested that she had a generous ‘pocket money’ allowance, and beyond that Mitch held the purse strings.
    A source close to her said: ‘Although she is very iconic, Amy actually didn’t have a classic pop star’s career in terms of earnings.

    'She had one fairly successful album, Frank, and one very successful one, Back To Black, but she didn’t tour at that point because of her personal problems.
    ‘As everyone knows, these days the money is in the touring rather than simply the music.
    ‘And then she never got it together enough to release any more music, so the money isn’t that enormous.’
    Tim Southam, an accountant who has worked with numerous recording stars, says: ‘A couple of decades ago, the attitude always was to spend it as fast as you earned it, and let your accountant worry about it for you. It may be that Amy was an artist in this tradition.
    ‘What you have with the accounts left behind by Amy Winehouse is a conundrum, because the amount which is in the company doesn’t look right, it doesn’t reflect her wealth.’
    You might think that, given her enormous success, there should be more left behind by Amy Winehouse.
    But then, as her family acknowledge, her legacy is her voice, her life lived, and the lives she touched.

    Singer Amy Winehouse died watching YouTube videos of herself after vodka binge, inquest hears

    • It was the second inquest into the singer's death after it was found the previous coroner was not qualified
    • Ms Winehouse died of misadventure after drinking so much alcohol she stopped breathing, new coroner said
    • The star had told her doctor she wanted to live shortly before she died in July 2011
    • Her family did not attend the hearing in London today
    • 'There was no need for us to go today. I wasn't going to put my family through that, it was horrible. That is the end of the story,' father Mitch said

    Tragic: Singer Amy Winehouse

    Amy Winehouse drank herself to death while watching herself on YouTube hours after telling her doctor she did not want to die, a fresh inquest heard today.
    The star, 27, was found slumped on her bed in her north London home after consuming so much vodka she stopped breathing on July 23, 2011.

    Ms Winehouse had also battled bulimia in the months prior to her death, St Pancras Coroners Court heard.
    It came during the second inquest into her death, after the first held in October 2011 was declared void after it emerged the presiding coroner was under-qualified.
    The singer was discovered next to two empty bottles and tests showed she was five times over the drink drive limit when she passed out.

    But the Grammy award winning star had told her doctor she wanted to live before embarking on the drinking binge that killed her.

    Today Coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe upheld the original verdict that Ms Winehouse died from misadventure.

    ‘The toxicology analysis revealed a level of alcohol commonly associated with fatality’, she said.
    ‘I am satisfied on the balance of probability Amy Winehouse voluntarily consumed alcohol.

    ‘It was a deliberate act which took an unexpected turn in that it led to her death.'



    Fresh inquest: Police officers leave the second inquest into the death of the singer, called after the previous coroner was found not to be qualified


    Crush: Journalists wait to enter a new inquest, which also found that Ms Winehouse died from misadventure

    The singer’s doctor Christina Romete had been helping her battle drug and alcohol addiction for several years, and saw her the day before she died.

    ‘In the course of the last consultation, Amy did not appear to be depressed at any stage’, she said.

    ‘She specifically said she did not want to die.’

    The singer spent that night watching YouTube videos of herself with bodyguard Andrew Morris, before downing enough vodka to stop her breathing.

    ‘She had been drinking throughout the day, I’m unsure what time she started, she was drinking vodka’, said Mr Morris.

    ‘At one point she came to my room and wanted to show me clips on YouTube of a Nigerian male she used to go out with.

    ‘You could tell she’d had a few drinks, but she wasn’t completely drunk. I’ve seen her drunk enough times in the past to know when she’d had too much.

    ‘In recent times I had never seen her watch clips of herself on YouTube before.’

    Sadness: Winehouse's home in London, where she died, became a shrine after her death in 2011



    Thousands came to Camden to pay their respects, in some cases even leaving alcohol as a tribute


    Mr Morris said he heard the singer laughing as she watched videos of herself online until he fell asleep at around 4am.

    The security guard, who said they had a ‘brother-sister relationship’ and had moved in to her Camden Square home, found her slumped on the bed at 10am the next day, but assumed she was sleeping.

    It was not until around 3.30pm that he checked on her again and raised the alarm after realising she had not moved.

    Professor Michael Sheaff said the amount of alcohol drunk was enough to stop her breathing.

    ‘When levels are extremely high, it can have an effect on the central nervous system’, he said.

    ‘At that level, it is likely Ms Winehouse had a respiratory arrest.’

    The inquest heard Ms Winehouse had a well-documented battle with alcohol, being admitted to hospital several times but struggled to stop boozing.

    ‘It was apparent Amy was a highly intelligent individual’, said Dr Romete.

    ‘It was not possible to convince her to take a course of action unless she wanted it.’

    Inspiration: Despite problems in her private life Amy Winehouse was considered one of the great singers of recent times

    Dr Romete said the singer was sober for ‘12 to 13 days’ prior to her death, but had been back drinking for three days prior to being found unconscious.

    The original inquest verdict into the death had to be ditched after it emerged deputy coroner Suzanne Greenaway, who oversaw the hearing, was under-qualified.
    She was appointed in July 2009 by her husband, Andrew Reid, who was the coroner for Inner North London, after working as a solicitor and barrister in Australia.

    But she resigned in November last year when it became clear she did not have the required five years’ experience in the Law Society.

    Dr Reid also quit from his post last month as he faced disciplinary proceedings and the possibility of being removed.

    ‘There is evidence she consumed a very large amount of alcohol at some point before her death’, said Dr Radcliffe.

    ‘Amy died as a result of alcohol toxicity.’


    Tragic: Amy's father Mitch is consoled by friends at her funeral in 2011. He said today the family did not want to attend the second inquest

    Amy Winehouse's father today said that coroners had made a 'massive cock up' which led to his daughter's inquest having to be heard again.

    But he said he was not surprised that today's fresh ruling matched the original findings of the court.

    Mitch Winehouse said he 'expected' the ruling but he attacked as 'preposterous' a series of blunders that meant the inquest into Amy's death had to be rescheduled after it was revealed the original coroner Suzanne Greenaway was not properly qualified.

    'That is what we expected. It is the same evidence so it was bound to each the same conclusion. What other conclusion could they reach?' he said.

    Asked whether he felt let down by the coroner's office, which failed to undertake adequate checks to make sure Miss Greenaway was qualified to practice in the UK, he said: 'It was a massive cock up.

    'They messed up twice - once when they sent the original coroner's report to the wrong address and the second time when a coroner who wasn't qualified oversaw the inquest.

    'It is preposterous.'

    Mitch said he had chosen not to go to today's inquest because he wanted to spare himself and his family the ordeal of hearing the circumstances surrounding his daughter's tragic demise.

    He said: 'There was no need for us to go today. If we had been in London we wouldn't have gone, I wasn't going to put my family through that, it was horrible. That is the end of the story.'

    'It's misleading and contains basic untruths': Amy Winehouse's father Mitch is 'furious' with new documentary about his late daughter

    By SHARNAZ SHAHID FOR MAILONLINE
    PUBLISHED: 12:28, 26 April 2015 | UPDATED: 15:10, 26 April 2015


    The father of the late Amy Winehouse has blasted an upcoming big-screen documentary about his late daughter’s life, branding the film as ‘misleading.’
    The British songstress died from alcohol poisoning nearly four years ago at her home in London at the age of just 27.
    The film, titled Amy and directed by BAFTA award-winning Asif Kapadia, will no longer have the full support of ex-cabbie Mitch and the rest of the Winehouse family as they believe they have not been portrayed in the right light, according to The Sun's Natalie Edwards.

    'It's misleading and contains basic untruths': The father of the late Amy Winehouse has blasted the upcoming big-screen documentary about his tragic daughter’s life

    THE FULL STATEMENT RELEASED BY THE WINEHOUSE FAMILY

    The Winehouse family would like to disassociate themselves from the forthcoming film about their much missed and beloved Amy. The documentary about her life will be released this summer and receive its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
    They feel that the film is a missed opportunity to celebrate her life and talent and that it is both misleading and contains some basic untruths.There are specific allegations made against family and management that are unfounded and unbalanced. The narrative is formed by the testimony of a narrow sample of Amy’s associates, many of whom had nothing to do with her in the last years of her life. Counter views expressed to the filmmakers did not make the final cut.
    Fundamentally, the Winehouse family believes that the film does a disservice to individuals and families suffering from the complicated affliction of addiction. By misunderstanding the condition and its treatment, the film suggests for instance that not enough was done for Amy, that her family and management pushed her into performing or did not do enough to help her. In reality, the filmmakers were told of a huge effort from all concerned to help Amy at all stages of her illness and their constant presence in her life throughout, as well as that of many excellent medical professionals. As many families know, addiction cannot begin to be treated properly until the individual helps themselves and there is no 'one size fits all' solution. Furthermore, Amy was an adult who could never be told what she could and could not do. Through their work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Amy’s family have met many others enduring through the same struggle that they endured and have helped hundreds of disadvantaged young people in Amy’s name. They will continue to do so and hope their work creates more understanding of a terrible illness.

    Amy was seen as one of the most talented musicians of her generation, and her albums - with songs such as Valerie, You Know I'm No Good and Rehab - sold in their millions.
    Earlier this month, a preview of the trailer was released, showing the six-time Grammy-Award winner in her younger days discussing her misgivings about fame.
    ‘I don't think I'm going to be at all famous, I don't think I could handle it. I would probably go mad,’ she says in the first glimpse of AMY, which uses previously unseen footage and unheard tracks.
    The footage also features a clip of young Amy singing and smiling towards the camera and talking about her career while a version of her hit Back To Black plays in the background.
    'Singing has always been important to me, but I never thought I'd end up singing or be a singer. I just thought I'm lucky that it's something I can always do if I want to,I'm so lucky like that,' she says over a montage of home videos and footage from throughout her life.
    'I felt that at the time there was nothing really new, that really represented me or the way I felt so I just really started writing,' Amy explains in one old interview, before the beehive and the worldwide acclaim.
    'I wouldn't write anything unless it was directly personal to me or I'd feel that I wouldn't be able to tell the story right.'
    Using soundbites from Amy's early career works to portray her as an unlikely star, unsure of the musical world of fame and excess.

    'I'm not a girl trying to be a star or trying to be anything besides a musician,' Winehouse says through archival footage. 'I don't think I'm gonna be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it. I'd probably go mad.'

    It was following the release of her Grammy-winning breakout album Back To Black in 2006 that Amy's life began to deteriorate and descend into alcohol and narcotic abuse.

    The highly-anticipated movie will debut at the Cannes Film Festival next month and is due to hit cinemas on July 3.

    MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Asif Kapadia for further comment.

    Me too. I suppose there might still be another release of alternate stuff. "Lioness" was good, if sad.

    Definitely interested in seeing this documentary. Either Kapadia is really off base, or he hit a nerve 'cause he's on to something. Maybe it's just me, but both her parents have always squicked me out.

    I really miss her voice, still. There's just nobody quite like her.

    Such a great distinctive voice until she ruined it. I think her parents can't face the truth and want to create a "she was just getting better" scenario" but it's too soon. Too many people around who remember the horror of her last years.

    i'd like to see this documentary as well.

    not sure if you guys have seen it, they included a documentary about her a few years ago at the san francisco jewish film festival. it was quite good; it featured some interviews of her. she was very charming and modest - a different side of her than i had previously seen.

    I really disliked that album. Her voice was great, but the material just wasn't working for me. She's much better singing her own stuff.

    Ew! That picture of her sucking her thumb while hugging her dad is disturbing.

    True this. I saw a documentary on her after she'd passed. In it an interview with her dad from around the beginning of her career and even back then he said that people assumed she had an alcohol problem. Yet he said something like "The break-up with her boyfriend shook her up and she drank a few to forget the pain. We've all been there and we've all done that. And after a while you feel better and life goes on again. That doesn't mean you have a drinking problem." Not verbatim, but I remember almost falling off the couch when I heard it, knowing the outcome. She had an addictive personality, drugs, alcohol and BLAAAAAAAAAKE. She was such a vulnerable, very talented, young girl, but it was almost like it couldn't end any other way than it did.
