Amy Winehouse Died From The “Shock” Of Alcohol Withdrawal

Although test results to reveal the cause of Amy Winehouse’s death have not been completed, Winehouse’s famly is pointing the finger at the singer’s attempt to sober from alcohol.

The NY Daily News reports:

The beehived diva, infamous for her drug and booze intake, went cold turkey on her heavy drinking in the month before her death on Saturday – and family members think her decision was fatal.

“Abstinence gave her body such a fright, they thought it was eventually the cause of her death,” a family friend told British newspaper The Sun.

Her father, Mitch, believed “the shock of giving up, after everything she had been through over a bad few years, was just too much for her to take,” the friend said.

Doctors had advised the 27-year-old “Rehab” singer to cut back gradually on her boozing, according to The Sun.

Toxicology reports to confirm the true cause of Amy Winehouse’s death are expected in the next few weeks.
