Amy Winehouse's Brother Says Bulimia Was To Blame For Her Death

June 23rd, 2013 2:03pm EDT
Amy Winehouse
According to Amy Winehouse's brother, bulimia was to blame for her death.

Winehouse passed away almost two years ago in July, 2011 after a drinking binge, and an inquest into her death revealed she suffered alcohol poisoning.
 
Her brother, Alex Winehouse, has now spoken out about his sister's death, and declared an eating disorder was actually to blame for the tragedy.
 
Alex claims the singer struggled with bulimia since she was a teenager, and the condition left her body in a weakened state, more susceptible to the dangers of drinking.
 
However, Alex is convinced the Grammy-winning ...

Amy Winehouse
London officials will be introducing a new inquest into Amy Winehouse's death following a scandal involving the woman who performed the autopsy.

The coroner who oversaw the autopsy of the singer did not have the proper prerequisites to deduce that the singer died of accidental alcohol poisoning, reports TMZ.

Assistant Deputy Suzanne Greenaway did not have the required five years of experience to get her position, but her husband appointed her anyway. The scandal led to the resignation of her husband.

The Winehouse family has no desire to exhume Amy's body for further analysis, and did no...

It's a celebrity's worst nightmare - a wardrobe malfunction (although we're pretty sure some of them plan it). The phrase skyrocketed in popularity in 2004 after Janet Jackson performed at the Super Bowl with Justin Timberlake and he tore open her top, exposing her right breast while singing, "Gonna have you naked by the end of this song."

Savvy stars do whatever they can to avoid embarrassing skin-revealing incidents, but inevitably a dress seam rips, a skirt blows up, or a nipple peeks out.

Surprisingly, Amy Winehouse was not fond of wearing black. As Naomi Parry, her stylist of five years, recently revealed to New York Times Magazine, she felt that it made her look ‘‘a bit like a witch.’’

For a tour last year — canceled after one performance in Belgrade, a month before Winehouse died in July — band members dressed in coral pink suits with sleek black shirts and velvet slippers. Parry designed a set of short, tight dresses for Winehouse in colors and prints inspired by the tour’s tropical theme with exclusive never before seen photos released to New York Times Magazine.
