Amy Winehouse spent week 'on a massive bender'
Details about Amy Winehouse's final days are emerging, with British tabloids saying she was riding a self-destructive streak straight to her demise. Not that British tabloids are the most trustworthy source these days, but still.
"She has spent the last seven days on a massive bender, and people were saying she's going to drink herself to death," a source told the U.K.'s Mirror. Indeed, the 27-year-old looked barely coherent while onstage with 15-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield at the iTunes festival last Wednesday, since she was hardly audible singing backup for the song Mama Said and seemed dazed.
"There was always a danger of something like this," another unnamed source told the paper. "Her drinking is totally out of control. She's constantly out of control on vodka. She'd drink bottle after bottle and mixing those quantities with drugs is lethal." A report in salacious outlet The People said Amy was spied buying cocaine, ecstasy, ketamine and heroin around 10:30 p.m. Friday.
Pal Kelly Osbourne went on the record as saying she thought Amy was doing well, and she and Winehouse talked for a good hour on Friday. "I was speaking to her last night, she seemed absolutely fine," Osbourne told the Mirror. "I don't understand how this could have happened."
