Amy Winehouse Dead At Age 27

British singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her flat in London.

The Back to Black hitmaker, 27, was reportedly found by cops following a call to emergency services on Saturday afternoon. Her death is being treated as "unexplained", according to reports.   

The star had a long and highly publicised battle with alcohol and drug addiction throughout her career and often sought help from rehabilitation clinics.   

Her battle with drugs is believed to have stemmed from the death of her beloved grandmother, and later her relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil, who she married in May 2007. They later divorced.   

Famed for her iconic beehive hairstyle and heavy make-up, Winehouse's 2003 debut album Frank was nominated for the Mercury Prize. In 2006, her follow-up Back to Black won six Grammy award nominations and five wins. Other honours included a Brit award and three Ivor Novello Awards.   

In recent years, she has spent time in the Caribbean attempting to overcome her demons, but a comeback tour was scrapped in June after a disastrous opening gig in Serbia where the seemingly drunk star stumbled around the stage, slurred her songs and stormed off several times.   

Winehouse was last seen in public earlier this week when she joined her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield onstage at the iTunes Festival in London.   

Winehouse's father, Mitch, was believed to be onboard a flight back to Britain from the U.S on Saturday.
