Winehouse 'has emphysema'

23rd June 2008

Amy Winehouse's father told the Sunday Mirror that she has early stage emphysema and an irregular heartbeat.


"Doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs, it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her," he said.

"She's got emphysema - it's in its early stages, but had it gone on for another month they painted a very vivid picture of her sitting there like an old person with a mask on her face struggling to breathe," Mr Winehouse said.

Ms Winehouse fell ill last week after fainting at home.

Mr Winehouse has called for his daughter's drug dealers and circle of drug addict pals to stay away from her. "I'm saying to those drug dealers, and they know who they are, if they are supplying crack to Amy, then they've got to take responsibility," he said.
