Late singer Amy Winehouse's father Mitch Winehouse has admitted that he will never allow a Hollywood biopic to be made out of his daughter's tragic life.
"I don't really want to do a biopic, but there's a documentary film from the same people who did Senna coming out next year. A concert would be amazing, but it's actually getting it together with the [record label]. It sounds great in theory, but in practice it's not so easy. We are talking about it though," he stated.
The 27-year-old singer's death created worldwide headlines in 2011, as much for her joining the so-called '27 Club' as for the tragic circumstances leading to her death. In February, Amy Winehouse's ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, went on record in a television talk show to claim responsibility for the singer's heroin habit. He told Jeremy Kyle he had £10 of heroine with him when he allowed his ex-wife a smoke.
"I admit I was there when she did it for the first time. I don't think she would ever have done it without me," he said, adding, "I have to be really sort of conscious about what I say. I don't want to feel like I'm shirking responsibility, the fact is what I'm saying is of course I regret it."
She turned her struggles with addiction into Grammy Award-winning songs. Her album Back to Black shot to the top of the charts after her death. It is also the UK's best-selling album of the 21st century.
Toxicology reports revealed Winehouse was not killed by drugs but died from the effects of alcohol withdrawal. 416mg of alcohol per decilitre was found in her blood, which is enough to induce a coma. The first inquest into Winehouse's death found she had died from alcohol poisoning but the inquest had to be heard again because the coroner lacked the proper qualifications to reach a verdict. The second inquest stated that Amy drank herself to death.
She was found dead in her north London home by her bodyguard. Paramedics arrived shortly afterwards but she was pronounced dead at the scene
