Amy Winehouse 'thought She Was Pregnant'


Amy Winehouse Mitch Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil

Amy Winehouse ''thought she was pregnant'' before she died.

The 'Back to Black' hitmaker's father Mitch Winehouse has revealed she believed she was expecting her first child with fiance Reg Traviss ''at some stage'' before she died of alcohol poisoning in 2011.

Addressing recent claims that his daughter was a loner, Mitch told Australia's 'Weekend Sunrise': ''She was with Reg, they were going to get married.

Amy Review

Excellent

As with his Formula One documentary Senna, filmmaker Asaf Kapadia cleverly uses archival footage to explore the wrenching story of Amy Winehouse. It's a strikingly journalistic approach that refuses to let anyone off the hook even as it draws out their deepest emotions. Lyrically edited by Chris King, the film is both beautiful and achingly sad, especially as it engulfs the audience on a big cinema screen.

A naturally gifted musician, Amy started writing her own songs at age 14 and had a publishing deal by 16, performing in small clubs as well as with the National Youth Jazz orchestra. At 20, her debut 2003 album Frank caused ripples in the industry with its jazz-infused vocals. And three years later, her follow-up Back in Black catapulted her into global stardom, something she never wanted. To escape the clamouring paparazzi and ever-larger audiences, she retreated into her on-off relationship with Blake Fielder, including a two-year marriage. But their key escape was to use large quantities of alcohol and drugs, which began to take a toll on Amy's career, leading to rambling interviews and shambolic stage appearances. In her lucid moments, she still had that raw power, and a series of rehab stints helped her conquer drugs. But in 2011, her alcohol consumption finally stopped her heart, which had been weakened by decades of bulimia.

Kapadia recounts this story using a staggering array of home movies, performance footage and press imagery, letting her prescient song lyrics play out across the screen as she performs them in homes, recording studios, TV shows and a variety of stages. Meanwhile, she tells her story in voiceover taken from interviews, plus new comments from her family, friends and colleagues. All of this is assembled with skill by the filmmakers to recount Amy's story chronologically, never shying away from the hard truths while refusing to let those closest to her adjust the material to revise history. In other words, it's sometimes brutally honest, not in the way it assigns blame but in the way it creates a portrait of a system that feeds off artists without properly looking out for them.

New Amy Winehouse Music To Be Released?


Amy Winehouse James Gay-Rees Blake Fielder-Civil Mark Ronson

Amy Winehouse has unreleased music.

Unheard tapes of the late singer - who died from alcohol poisoning aged 27 in 2011 - were discovered by 'Amy' director Asif Kapdia, producer James Gay-Rees and editor Chris King during their two years researching for the documentary.

Now the movie makers are campaigning for the 'Rehab' singer's label, Universal, to release an album featuring the tracks they weren't able to squeeze in to the biopic, including an ''emotive'' one about her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

Amy Winehouse's Ex-husband: 'I'm Not To Blame For Her Demise'


Amy Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil

Fielder-Civil, who was married to the Rehab singer from 2007 to 2009, has long been accused of leading Winehouse into the downward spiral of substance abuse, but he is adamant he is not the person responsible for her dependency on crack cocaine and other drugs and he wants to clear his name, four years after she died from alcohol poisoning.

Speaking ahead of the release of the Amy Winehouse documentary, he tells Britain's The Times Magazine, "I feel like my own legacy as far as Amy goes is that I ruined this amazing person. If I genuinely believed I (ruined her), I probably would really struggle getting through the day. I don't think I ruined her, no. I think we found each other and certain people need to realise that she did have other addictions before she met me. She wasn't a happy, well-adjusted young woman, you know, and I find it disrespectful to imply I was some MAChiavellian puppet master.

"I'd like to speak to (her father) Mitch and genuinely, genuinely plead for his forgiveness (for any) parts I've played in what has occurred, but I won't take responsibility for Amy passing away because it's not fair."

Blake Fielder Denies Responsibility For Amy Winehouse's Decline And Death


Amy Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil Mitch Winehouse

Blake Fielder, the former husband of the late Amy Winehouse, has denied that he “ruined” the singer’s life and rejected suggestions that he was responsible for her decline into addiction.

Winehouse, who died in 2011 at the age of 27, was married to Fielder (known then as Blake Fielder-Civil) from 2007 for two years, and the pair continued an on-off relationship for a couple of years afterwards despite the breakdown of the marriage. Fielder, now 33, is often blamed for introducing the Back To Black singer to hard drugs and beginning her spiral into substance and alcohol abuse.

Blake Fielder-Civil Amy Winehouse Mitch Winehouse

Blake Fielder-Civil ''won't take any responsibility for Amy [Winehouse] passing away''.

The 33-year-old former drug addict was married to the 'Valerie' singer between 2007 and 2009 and has widely been blamed for her demise and ultimate death in 2011, but refuses to accept he ''ruined'' her, arguing she wasn't ''well-adjusted'' to begin with.

He said: ''I feel like my own legacy as far as Amy goes is that I ruined this amazing person. If I genuinely believed [I ruined her] I probably would really struggle getting through day to day. I don't think I ruined her, no. I think we found each other and certain people need to realise that she did have other addictions before she met me. She wasn't a happy, well-adjusted young woman, you know, and I find it disrespectful to imply I was some Machiavellian puppet master.''

Amy Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil

Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder Civil were like ''two speeding trains hurtling towards each other'', according to the late singer's ex-husband's brother.

Harry Civil has revealed how watching his brother ''destroy'' the singer - who tragically passed away aged 27 in 2011 - through introducing her to hard drugs made him feel ''guilty'', and forced him to not speak to him for years after her death.

He said: ''They seemed hell-bent on destroying each other and didn't care about dragging others down with them. It was like watching two speeding trains hurtle towards each other before a violent crash.'

The 32-year-old former junkie has insisted that the late singer's dad Mitch Winehouse forged Amy's signature on the divorce papers, and said there was ''manic insistence'' from her family to sign the papers.

Blake said: ''There was a manic insistence from her family and friends to sign the divorce papers. We spoke on the phone and she didn't want the divorce. A week later the papers were there in front of me and it was clear it wasn't her signature.
