The Grammy-winning singer, best known for her hit song, “Rehab,” died of a suspected drug overdose, Nick Buckley of the Sunday Mirror tweeted. Tim Gatt, of Sky News, tweeted that her “death [is] being treated as unexplained by police.”
She’s battled drug addiction for years, having most recently checked back into rehabilitation in May.
Winehouse entered treatment in late 2007 for drug problems, including admitted heroin use.
Earlier in the day, Gatt tweeted a statement saying that she was withdrawing from all of her upcoming performances, writing, “Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen.”
Winehouse has had previous near-death experiences, including one her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, described in detail back in 2009.
