Amy Winehouse: Family visit scene of her death and give her clothes away to fans

AMY Winehouse’s grieving family yesterday began clearing the house where she died – then gave her clothes to stunned fans.

Heartbroken dad Mitch, 60, told them: “This is what she would have wanted.”

Mitch and Amy’s mum, Janis, are thought to have visited the bedroom where the singer’s body was found on Saturday.

The star’s dad and her boyfriend, Reg Traviss, 35, later gave out armfuls of her possessions including spectacles.

Mitch, who had a pair of his daughter’s ballet pumps in his back pocket, told fans: “These are Amy’s T-shirts. This is what she would have wanted – for her fans to have her clothes.”

He added: “Please keep listening to her music. God bless Amy Winehouse.”

Marcella Wright, 17, from Ireland, was handed a white vest top. She said: “It feels amazing to have been given this. She was an idol to me.”

Brigitte Pividal, 52, who lived near Amy in Camden, North London, was handed a red top and said: “I have been coming here every day since she died and I didn’t expect this. I will cherish it all my life.”

Amy’s parents, accompanied by their son, Alex, and close friends proudly looked at the tributes outside the £2.5million home in Camden.

Some of Amy’s staff, including manager Raye Cosbert, also arrived at the house to clear some of her belongings including a guitar into a Mercedes. One female friend sobbed as she carried a framed portrait of the Back to Black singer, who died aged 27 after a long battle with drink and drugs.

Rabbi Frank Hellner has revealed that the troubled star had discussed her funeral arrangements with her family.

The rabbi, who conducted the service on Tuesday, added: “She was on a course of self-destruction. Although she was fighting at the end and thought she had prevailed, it had gone too far.

“She was a frail little girl. I think it was too much for her body and she succumbed.”

At a memorial gig in Greenwich, South-East London, on Wednesday, music producer Mark Ronson, 35, jokingly said Amy was “the sister I never wanted” and recalled her “f****** hating everything”.
