Amy Winehouse’s mum shares heartbreaking tribute on ninth anniversary of her death
Janis Winehouse took to Twitter to share a picture of a candle burning next to a pair of her late daughter’s designer heels
Amy Winehouse ‘s mum has shared a poignant tribute to the tragic star on the ninth anniversary of her death.
The Back To Black singer was just 27 years old when she was found dead at her home in Camden, North London on 23 July 2011 after a drinking binge.
Today marks nine years since the tragedy, and Janis Winehouse took to Twitter to remember her late daughter.
She shared a picture of a candle burning next to a pair of Amy’s designer high heeled shoes.
She captioned the picture simply: “Love Janis Xxx.”
Janis was swamped with well wishes who offered their sympathies on the poignant anniversary, and she replied to many of their messages to thank them.
One fan wrote: “Thinking of you and the family,” and Janis replied: “Big thanks to you and all the wonderful winettes, love Janis xxx.”
The pop star had spent years battling addiction issues, and was found unconscious at her London townhouse by her bodyguard.
She was pronounced dead at the scene and an inquest later found she died from alcohol poisoning.
Winehouse was found to have had more than five times the legal drink drive limit of alcohol in her system and a ruling of death by misadventure was given.
Her death made the singer part of the notorious “27 club” – a group of famous musicians who all died at the age of 27 including Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin.
