Amy Winehouse memorial

Mitch Winehouse has today claimed his tragic daughter had beaten her drug addiction – and had, in fact, conquered her dependency three years ago.
The grieving 60-year-old told mourners at her funeral how the 27-year-old singer had given up drugs despite the fact doctors had said it would be ‘impossible’ for her to beat her addiction.
Mr Winehouse, who broke down in tears at the service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in North London, spoke on behalf of his ex-wife Janis and their son Alex – and insisted she had made a ‘fantastic recovery.’
