Winehouse Turned To Drugs After Grandmother's Death

Troubled star AMY WINEHOUSE turned to drugs following the death of her grandmother, according to reports.
The Rehab hitmaker's former manager Nick Godwyn says Winehouse was devastated after grandmother Cynthia lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006.
And Godwyn admits Cynthia was the only person who could control the 24-year-old's behaviour.
He says, "Cynthia was the one person who could make Amy behave and who she would listen to."
And Winehouse's father Mitch has backed up Godwyn's claims.
He adds, "Cynthia was more like a best friend to Amy. She kept her feet on the ground. After she went, there's nobody who she'll listen to. She certainly won't listen to me."

It is sad about Amy's Grandmother whom Amy admired, trusted and loved so much. I hope that maybe her Grandmther gave her courage and strenght and resilence to be strong and make her decission about what is right and wrong. I myself am a 9 year breast cancer survivor. I place all my extra energy into music that I simply adore. Amy's is so talanted! She is brillant and there is no one like her in the business. Amy you can control what happens to you. Your a strong minded and strong willed. Take control of your life and enjoy your talant, your family and friends! sincerely, Tuesday
