Wine­house spot­ted ‘drunk and dazed’

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODPASTIMES -

SHE RE­TURNED from her eight-month so­journ in St Lu­cia looking hap­pier and health­ier. But Amy Wine­house has al­ready lost that hol­i­day glow.

The singer was spot­ted stum­bling out of a pub this week in a daze. She had a wet stain on the front of her T-shirt, teary eyes, spotty red skin, and traces of what looked like a mys­tery sub­stance in her right nos­tril – and had to be helped to her car.

One on­looker said: “Every­one’s been say­ing that Amy’s on the mend, but her be­hav­iour was very wor­ry­ing. She didn’t seem to know what was go­ing on and didn’t seem able to walk on her own. Peo­ple were ef­fec­tively hold­ing her upright.”

Miss Wine­house, 25, spent her night out with an un­likely pair of friends.

Af­ter leav­ing her North Lon­don home with Sadie Frost’s ex-boyfriend, Kris­tian Marr, bass player in punk rock band Tow­ers of Lon­don, they picked up en­ter­tainer David Gest from an ad­dress in St John’s Wood. The trio then went to The Queens pub in Prim­rose Hill for an hour, un­til Wine­house emerged and headed home. Last night Wine­house’s spokesman in­sisted she was not back on drugs and de­nied there was any­thing sus­pi­cious in her nose. “Amy just went out to din­ner with her friend Kris­tian, it’s as sim­ple as that. Kris­tian also knows David Gest and that’s why he was there.”

A friend of the singers told the Mail: “It’s not a se­cret that Amy likes a few drinks. She was quite drunk that night but she didn’t take drugs. She’s still clean and do­ing well.” – Daily Mail
