She was 27.
For now it’s being treated as unexplained, but most people are assuming the obvious — drugs.
The five-time Grammy Award winner has publicly battled with a drug and alcohol addiction for years now. After several stints in rehab, she was finally said to be getting herself clean and preparing a comeback, but in May she relapsed and re-entered rehab prior to her European tour. Last month she kicked off the tour in Belgrade, when she appeared on stage clearly intoxicated, slurring her words and stumbling around on stage.
She cancelled the tour, and wasn’t heard of since. Until now.
It's ery shocked & saddened to hear the passing of Amy Winehouse. Amy Whinehouse is one of my favorite artists and that her sophomore album Back to Black is one of my all time favorite records. Her music & spirit will live on. RIP #AmyWinehouse
