Amy Winehouse’s mother Janis is so estranged from her troubled daughter she “no longer recognises” her.
The Rehab singer has been taking time out from her career after her recent high-profile spells in hospital and much tabloid coverage of her reported drug problems.
And despite repeated pleas from her friends and family to seek professional help, 52-year-old Janis fears the soul star will not kick her alleged drug habit until it’s too late.
“Amy is playing Russian roulette with her health and musical gift. She’s lost herself,” she says. “We’re not talking about my Amy. It’s not someone I recognise. She has become her own stage creation. I knew she was smoking marijuana but not that she was doing class A drugs until she collapsed. She won’t stop until she sees the point of stopping… when I saw her afterwards, I did not tell her to clean up, there was no point. Talking to her about it won’t make any difference.”
