While he wouldn’t overtly put the blame on Blake Fielder-Civil (even though he basically already has), Amy Winehouse’s father says he was “killing” her.
On Piers Morgan Tonight, Mitch Winehouse reflected again on the notorious druggie best known for introducing Amy Winehouse to cocaine and heroin.
He feels blaming Blake would be “stupid,” but he did warn him that after what he’s been through with his daughter, he wants nothing to do with him now.
Mitch explained that Blake Fielder-Civil, who is currently in jail for assault, and his mother have told media reports that they have tried to contact him.
Nothing of the sort has taken place, and he’d hang up if it did.
“His mother says that Blake’s been trying to get in touch with me, but none of them have gotten in touch with me. Not that I’m not interested in them.”
“I won’t talk to him. I’m not interested,” Mitch adds. “I’m not interested in his family. I’m not interested in him. We don’t want their help with the foundation. We would be a laughingstock if we recruited him into the foundation.”
The foundation Mitch is referring to is the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which is set to officially launch today, and aims to support organizations that help young people who are vulnerable, including those with addictions.
On a less depressing note, take a look at this clip of Mitch remembering a positive story about Amy, who would have been 28 years old today …
