The second inquest into Amy Winehouse’s death proved that the beehived singer indeed died of alcohol toxicity. Coroner Shirley Radcliffe recorded a verdict of death by misadventure and that there were no suspicious circumstances to the singer’s death.
A second inquest had to be made after the first investigation showed that the original coroner did not have the right qualifications for the job.
Don’t know about you but I think only a depraved person would steal from the dead! That is the perfect description for that person or persons who stole two of Amy Winehouse’s dresses from the London home where she died!
One of the stolen dresses is the wedding dress that Amy wore when she married Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006. The other one is a cocktail dress that Amy wore in an interview on “Later…With Jools Holland” on BBC. This bad news was confirmed by Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse to The Sun newspaper.
Amy Winehouse left a fortune of £4.3 or $6.8 million after her death in July 2011. After paying debts and taxes, the amount was cut down to £2.9 or $4.6 million. That’s still a lot of money right?
Now, Amy didn’t leave a will when she died so her estate will go to her parents Mitch and Janis Winehouse. Of course her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she divorced in 2009, won’t receive any of it! Amy’s father Mitch has been assigned as the administrator of her estate.
As promised, Amy Winehouse posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, was released December 5 by her favorite producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, with the blessing of her parents.
The album contained 12 tracks of previously unreleased songs and alternative versions of released tracks such as the reggae version of Our Day Will Come and The Girl from Ipanema, both were recorded in May 2002. Other songs include versions of her classics such as Valerie and Body and Soul, a duet with Tony Bennett.
Remember the white dress that Amy was wearing on the cover of her ‘Back to Black’ album? That pretty little dress sold for £43,000 or $68,000 at an auction! This amount is four times than what the auctioneer has predicted.
Amy’s white dress was bought by a private fashion house in Chile named Fundacion Museo De La Moda.
The dress was actually made in 2006 by Disaya who is a graduate of Central Saint Martins fashion school. She loaned the dress to Amy for the ‘Back to Black’ photo shoot. A few days ago Disaya sold the dress to Kerry Taylor Auctions and so, the dress has a new owner now from Chile.
Three months after Amy Winehouse’s death the coroner is finally able to determine the underlying cause of the British singer’s death. It’s not foul play and it’s not drugs. It’s the silent but delicious killer, alcohol! Coroner Suzanne Greenway gave the result the Amy’s is a “death of misadventure” because she voluntarily consumed alcohol that is beyond the level that the body can take.
Suhail Baithun, a pathologist, also told the inquest on the singer’s death that there was a “very large quantity of alcohol” in her body, five times more than the legal drunk-driving limit.
The web is abuzz with rumors that the late Amy Winehouse was poised to adopt when she died unexpectedly. British tabloid Sunday Mirror reported that Amy was in the process of adopting a 10-year-old girl from the Caribbean. The little girl in question is 10-year-old Dannika Augustine.
Dannika met Amy when the songstress vacationed in St. Lucia island. The island was one of Amy’s favorite haunts in the previous years. You’ve probably seen Dannika in some photos with Amy. The adoption story was confirmed by Dannika’s grandmother Marjorie Lambert. She said that Amy wanted a child so bad that if she hadn’t died the adoption process would have been completed already.
Family and friends expressed their final goodbyes to the 27-year-old songstress Amy Winehouse during her funeral yesterday. It was a very emotional moment at the Edgwarebury Cemetery in North London. Her producer Mark Ronson and fellow musician Kelly Osbourne were in attendance. Her father gave a heartrending eulogy. He ended it by saying “Goodnight my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and daddy love you ever so much.” Her brother also gave a picture of their happy childhood days.
And even though not a lot of celebrities were able to attend the funeral, they expressed their sadness over the loss through Twitter. Katy Perry tweeted, “RIP Amy Winehouse. May she finally find peace.”
I just came across some Breaking News that left me utterly flabbergasted!
Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead today at her London home ... What a tragedy!
At around 16.00 today, an ambulance was called to Winehouse's residence and the police followed as reports of a young woman being found dead were announced.
It turned out to be Amy and she was pronounced dead at the scene. She was then taken to a London mortuary where post-mortem examinations are to be performed in the coming two days. Thus, the cause of death has net yet been revealed and is still unknown.
I thought Amy Winehouse has fully recovered from the wreck that she was two years ago. According to reports, the Back to Black singer checked out of rehab today after spending seven days in the facility.
So why did she enter rehab? Apparently, the songstress had a bit too much to drink last week. Imagine downing one bottle of vodka in just a matter of minutes. At least that’s what an eyewitness saw last Thursday. That unnamed source told The Sun, “I was shocked to see her buy vodka so early in the day, and even more shocked to see her knock it straight back.”
Do you have any idea how much a piece of Luella Bartley gear costs? How about Alexander McQueen’s? Well they are worth thousands! Anyone who owns such pieces would surely have a hard time parting with them. But not Amy Winehouse! The 27-year-old songstress gladly gave away her expensive Alexander McQueen dresses and gear by Luella Bartley.
The singer, songwriter suddenly turned up in a thrift shop whose earnings go to charity carrying bins and bins of stuff! All of the contents of the bins were top designer stuff a source said. And here’s the thing, all of the clothes and gear were in tiptop condition!
Amy Winehouse is back in good shape, we all know that. However, the songstress is not yet content with her current physique. She wants to be more “supple without too muscly” a source close to her said.
Another reason for choosing ballet is that Amy apparently “loves the glamour of ballet.” Well, can’t say I blame her!
To achieve the kind of body she wants, Amy is taking up ballet! Instead of enrolling in a class, she hired a private instructor to help her through the paces. This set-up is quite convenient since she has plenty of room in her Camden pad.
Amy Winehouse is sooo back! Well we all know that she’s had some small gigs previously. But on Saturday, she successfully completed the first of her series of concerts in Brazil. She looked great when she took the stage at the Summer Soul Festival in Florianopolis.
Amy was wearing a pink and white gingham dress with a revealing neckline. But you know what’s surprising? She passed up her signature beehive do for a pony tail. Her makeup was excellent with pink lipstick and winged eyeliner.
Wouldn’t you just love to be Amy Winehouse right now? The British songstress pocketed £1 million or $1.5 million for just performing two hours in Russia! Nope it wasn’t a public concert. She was contracted by a wealthy Russian businessman to perform. The identity of that businessman wasn’t disclosed. But he’s a chum of billionaire businessman Mikhail Prohorov and Sergei Kapkovym.
Amy was treated like a VIP in every way. Imagine, she was flown from London to Russia in a private jet and was put up in one of the most exclusive hotels in the city!
