Worker’s Move Amy Winehouse’s Belongings Out of Her London Home

Earlier today in London, workers were spotted moving all of recently passed singer Amy Winehouse‘s things out of her apartment, just six days after she was found dead. The workers carried large, black garbage bags both in and out of the singer’s home, which is still surrounded by floral arrangements and memorials.

On Thursday night, Winehouse’s parents joined other family members and friends of the singer – including Kelly Osbourne – at Amy’s favorite bar in London to celebrate her life.

Winehouse’s autopsy was conducted this past Monday afternoon, and toxicology results will be available in 2-to-4 weeks. Police called her death “unexplained,” adding speculation about a drug overdose is “inappropriate” in light of the fact that no drugs were found at her house upon inspection.

Rest in peace, Amy.

Did Amy Winehouse die from alcohol withdrawl?

Amy Winehouse’s family is insisting the singer did not die from a drug overdose. In fact now they are claiming that her death on Saturday at the age of 27, was due to her sudden abstinence from alcohol.

Winehouse ignored doctors’ advice to step back gradually from her heavy drinking and went cold turkey in the past month, an unnamed family friend tells Britain’s Sun. Her family believes that was too much of a shock to her system, the source adds.

“Abstinence gave her body such a fright, they thought it was eventually the cause of her death,” says the source.

PEOPLE has confirmed that this is the family’s belief.

The cause of Winehouse’s death won’t be known for weeks, pending the completion of toxicology tests.

There have been reports that Winehouse went on a bender during her final days. But the family source tells the Sun that her father, Mitch Winehouse, said in his eulogy at his daughter’s funeral that he believed it was just the opposite.

“He said doctors had told Amy to gradually reduce her intake of alcohol and to avoid bingeing at all costs. Amy told him she couldn’t do that. It was all or nothing and she gave up completely,” says the source.

“Mitch said the shock of giving up, after everything she had been through over a bad few years, was just too much for her to take.”

This whole story is so sad, but if she really did die from finally trying to do the right thing – then it’s even sadder!

Guess we’ll know in a couple weeks!

Amy Winehouse’s funeral takes place in London.


Amy Winehouse, who was found dead in her London home on Saturday, was laid to rest on Tuesday in London. The private funeral was only attended by family and close friends, including Mark Ronson and Kelly Osbourne.

Sky News reports that Winehouse’s ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was not allowed out of prison for the event; he is currently serving 32 months for violent crimes.

A witness told the British news service that Winehouse’s dad, Mitch, “told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognized the stories and laughed along. He stressed so many times she was happier now than she had ever been and he spoke about her boyfriend and paid tribute to a lot of people in her life.”

Winehouse’s most recent boyfriend, Reg Traviss, spoke to the UK’s Sun about his devastating loss, saying that Winehouse had been exercising and in good spirits before she passed.

“I can’t describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love,” he said. “I have lost my darling who I loved very much.”

Autopsy results proved inconclusive on Monday, meaning it will take 2-4 weeks for toxicology tests to provide a cause of death.

So sad!
