The Washington Times Daily - - Life -

Records show Amy Wine­house left an es­tate worth $4.66 mil­lion af­ter her death last year, the As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports.

The 27-year-old soul diva was found dead in bed on July 23 at her London home.

Pro­bate doc­u­ments showed Wed­nes­day that she left be­hind as­sets to­tal­ing more than $6.7 mil­lion, with $4.66 mil­lion re­main­ing af­ter debts and taxes.

Since Wine­house did not leave a will, the money will go to her par­ents. The doc­u­ments list fa­ther Mitch Wine­house as ad­min­is­tra­tor of the singer’s es­tate. Noth­ing goes to her ex-hus­band, Blake Fielder-civil, whom she di­vorced in 2009.

Wine­house shot to fame with her 2006 al­bum “Back to Black,” but strug­gled for years with drug and al­co­hol abuse. An in­quest found she died of ac­ci­den­tal al­co­hol poi­son­ing.
