Winehouse spotted ‘drunk and dazed’
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
