The Sultry Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's dad is furious with his ex-wife for suggesting the singer has been abandoned by her family in her time of need, insisting he's been by the star’s side throughout her recent problems. The Rehab singer ignited fresh fears for her health last week after she was pictured wandering the streets outside her London home in just a bra and jeans, and her mother, Janis, sent an open letter to the troubled singer pleading with her to "pick up the phone" and "come home". But Winehouse’s dad, Mitch, who split from Janis when Amy was nine-years-old - claims their daughter has been looking to him for support as she battles a drug addiction, while her husband Blake Fielder-Civil remains imprisoned. Mitch fumes, "It is absolute rubbish to suggest that no one has been in touch with Amy. I’ve seen her five times myself last week. We’re getting sick of the sight of each other, we are seeing each other that much."Amy is monitored all the time. She is with trusted people who care for her and look out for her. We are all encouraging and helping Amy at the minute and that is what is most important." Fielder-Civil is being held in a London jail on charges he tried to bribe a witness.

Dang... if she's surrounded by trusted people who care about her and look out for her best interest, then they're not doing such a good job. She's been in the news lately and NOT for good things.

But MAYBE the trusted people are doing a good job or else we'd see more of Amy in the news. I promise I don't know.

Okay, Dad. I get the feeling you really love your daughter by saying you are getting sick of seeing each other since you see each other that much. (sarcasm intended.)

Given the seriousness of your daughter's troubles, I don't feel that was a good statement. But maybe it was said in jest; to lighten the load a bit. But again, I don't know.

Wish you well though, Amy. I hope we don't read about you in the obits anytime soon.
