Amy Winehouse died alone in bed
Amy Winehouse “died alone in bed” before she was found to be unresponsive by a bodyguard, according to the tragic star’s representative.
The Rehab hitmaker was found dead at her north London home on Saturday afternoon at the age of 27.
It has since been reported that the star, who battled years of substance abuse, had suffered a drugs and drink overdose after a heavy night of partying on Friday.
But the late singer’s publicist, Chris Goodman, insists there “was no wild party” and Winehouse spent her last hours with her minder Andrew Morris before going to bed alone – only to die in her sleep.
Goodman says, “At this stage no one knows how she died. There has been speculation that she had taken drugs and we can’t say anything until the autopsy has been done. There was no wild party, she died alone in bed.
“Amy was on her own at home apart from a security guard who we had appointed to help look after her over the past couple of years.
“She was in her bedroom after saying she wanted to sleep and when he went to wake her he found she wasn’t breathing. He called the emergency services straight away. He was very shocked.”
The Sun newspaper claims a doctor employed by the star’s record label had given Winehouse the all-clear during a routine check on Friday.
A post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place on Monday to determine the cause of death.
