After her 2008 drug overdose her mother Janis released the following statement..
‘I’ve known for a long time that my daughter has problems. But seeing it on screen rammed it home. I realise my daughter could be dead within the year. We’re watching her kill herself, slowly.
‘I’ve already come to terms with her dead. I’ve steeled myself to ask her what ground she wants to be buried in, which cemetery. Because the drugs will get her if she stays on this road. I look at Heath Ledger and Britney. She’s on their path. It’s like watching a car crash – this person throwing all these gifts away.’
Amy cancelled the rest of her concerts in Europe after her terrible performance inn Belgrade where she tripped on the stage and seemed incoherent..
‘Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen”
An autopsy will be done on Sunday or Monday, her mother who was just with her the day before she died said that she knew her daughter’s dead was just a matter of time..
She seemed out of it. But her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me, the last words they exchange were by the time they said goodbye to each other I love you, Mum. They are the words I will always treasure and always remember Amy by’ Her father is on his way back to London.
