Amy Winehouse’s father says the singer came “close to death” twice during her worst moments, people.com reports.
Detailing his daughter’s lowest points for the upcoming TV documentary Saving Amy, Mitch Winehouse says that while the media have been reveling in her downfall, “They didn’t see her lying in bed for days in a dark room,” he is quoted in Hello! magazine.
“She was close to death twice. We have been working a lot to get her to where she is right now,” said the elder Winehouse, who now claims his daughter is drug-free.
Amy’s mother, Janis, also appears in Saving Amy — and is highly critical of Winehouse’s husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who announced last week he is divorcing the singer after seeing photos of her with hunky rugby player Josh Bowman.
This week brought new tabloid reports that Amy Winehouse, 25, has moved from Bowman on to another man at the St. Lucia resort where she is vacationing.
According to femalefirst.co.uk, Winehouse has enjoyed several dates with a tennis instructor at her St. Lucia hotel.
A source said: “Amy has met another man and they are getting on really well. She has had her eye on him for a while. He is another clean-cut, handsome, healthy bloke, much like Josh.
