According to figures released yesterday from the accounts of her two companies Cherry Westfield and CW Touring the star was worth just over Â£2 million when she died in July, so what happened to the rest of her millions?
In 2008 Amy Winehouse entered The Sunday Times’ Rich List with a fortune of Â£10 million but by the following year her big fortune had greatly reduced by 50 per cent down to Â£5 million.
A story leaked in 2009 that the Back To Black singer had asked her father Mitch Winehouse to step in and take control of her Â£15million assets but this was never confirmed leading many to believe that the Sunday Times figure of Â£5 million in 2009 was a far more accurate estimate of the stars fortune.
Could Amy’s excessive lifestyle along with her notorious drug habit combined with her generosity to all her friends be responsible for the missing Â£8 million that’s vanished from her personal fortune over a period of three years?
The tragic star and winner of five Grammy awards was found dead at her North London home in July the cause of which still remains a mystery but toxicology reports cleared Amy Winehouse of having any drugs in her system at the time of her death aged 27.
