Amy Winehouse- all the inside details!
All the details on Wino’s shock death, who is JLo rebounding with and all the juice on Hugh Hefner’s bedroom secrets… Jenna dishes the dirt…
The biggest news in Celebville this week is without a doubt the shocker and untimely passing of Amy Winehouse. The news broke early Saturday evening that the British songstress had died in her Camden home- cause unknown- at just 27 years old.
The first thought that leapt to everyone’s minds was that Wino had died after a drug and booze binge, something she was infamous for. The last time anyone really saw Amy Winehouse was when she kicked off her European tour in Belgrade with a performance that was sad and uncomfortable to watch. The tour was promptly cancelled and it was announced that Amy would be going back to rehab before she’d return to the stage and sadly she never did.
There have been shrines to her popping up all over her neighbourhood of Camden- where she was often seen boozing and carousing at the local clubs and pubs- bottles of vodka, roses and messages to Wino are piling up as a tribute to the tragic singer. The most noteable tribute has been from her good friend Russell Brand, who wrote a beautiful tribute to Wino. Super touching!
According to her beloved pops, Mitch Winehouse, Amy had beaten her drug demons and was trying to get off the booze after a stint in London’s Priory rehab. He said in a statement “Three years ago, Amy conquered her drug dependency. The doctors said it was impossible, but she really did it. She was trying hard to deal with her drinking and had just completed three weeks of abstinence.” Now there are sources saying she died because she quit alcohol and her body went into shock!
There are so many rumours surrounding her death. Sources are saying Wino wasn’t off the drugs or the booze at all and in fact she was seen buying drugs believed to be cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and ketamine leading up to the hours before her death from a well-known local Camden dealer! She is also thought to have been drinking heavily, which may have been the trigger of a lethal concoction of drugs and alcohol on her already totally beaten down and abused body!
A sourced revealed all about Wino’s last night out ‘Amy seemed determined to have a big one on Friday night. She was out in Camden on Friday evening, but seemed determined to carry on the party back at her flat. None of us know who was with her into the early hours of Saturday. But getting out of it was clearly her main priority of the night.’’
Amy was found by her bodyguard (who had been hired to watch her) dead in her bed, and apparently had been for some time. The autopsy report that was done is inconclusive thus far and the cause of her death will only really be known in month! Her former loco husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who’s still in the slammer is said to be beside himself at losing the love of his life. The pair, in their heyday were infamous for their insane, turbulent marriage. I even dubbed them back then, the Romeo and Juliet of Crack. Thank the lord she divorced his ass and had been seeing a producer called Reg Travvis who was said to be a calming influence on her!
Wino, who was Jewish, had a memorial on Tuesday, attended by close pals like Kelly Osbourne (who did her hair in a traditional Wino beehive as a tribute) and Mark Ronson. She was then cremated in Golders Green, North London- which isn’t traditional Jewish ritual. Her devastated father Mitch said the fact that his daughter was happy at the time of her death has made his suffering a bit more manageable.
He released a statement about his beloved Amy “She was the happiest she has been for years. She was not depressed. She saw [her mom] Janis and [her boyfriend] Reg [Traviss] on Friday and was in good spirits. That night, she was in her room, playing drums and singing. Knowing that she wasn’t depressed, knowing that she passed away happy — it makes us all feel better.”
Poor Wino, such a tortured tragic soul with such a talent! She was only 27 when she died and joins the growing list of artists who also died at 27. Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Kobain to name a few. The jokes have already started, when does Lindsay Lohan turn 27? Not very nice.
Rest in peace Amy, your talent will never be forgotten!
Romancing… rebound style
So the dust is kinda settling on the whole JLO Marc Anthony shock split and everyone is wondering who will be MR JLO number 4! Well Jenny from the Block is going back to the old days… she’s been rebounding with former flame, P Diddy- I am not quite sure what he calls himself these days, but I’m going with that! Jennifer and P Diddy had an infamous romance back in early 2000, it was all very ghetto and bling bling but it sure put Jen on the map! So apparently Jen and P Diddy have been talking since last year already and the pair met up while Jen was celebrating her 42nd birthday in Miami last week and then Jen flew to NYC to have dinner with P Diddy at the glam Phillipe Chow restaurant! Mmm, friends or rekindling the old flame?! This is gonna get interesting…
Hef… the horndog?
It’s been over a month since the ‘shock’ wedding that never was, of Hugh Hefner and child bride Crystal Harris and the claws are out- and how! Hef’s already got like 3 new child girlfriends, and Crystal is still busy with Dr Phil’s son Jordan McGraw but girlfriend is relishing in her 15 minutes of fame! This week Crystal made an appearance on the Howard Stern radio show and had PLENTY to say about sexy times with the Hef! While on the show Crystal dished that sexy times with the geriatric Playboy founder lasted “like two seconds.” Wowzers! She also claimed they only had sex once and was grossed out by him and their sex life! Crystal said “I was just over it. I was like, ‘Ahhh.’ I was over it. I just like, walked away. I’m not turned on by Hef, sorry. He doesn’t really take off his clothes; I’ve never seen Hef naked.” Whether or not it’s true, it’s a huge knock to the image Hef has built up as a lusty lover. But Hef ain’t taking her comments lying down- and what does one do? Take to Twitter! The Playboy mogul tweeted, “Crystal did a crazy interview with Howard Stern today that didn’t have much to do with reality. Is she trying to impress a new boyfriend? The sex with Crystal the first night was good enough so that I kept her over two more nights. Crystal lied about our relationship on Howard Stern but I don’t know why.” Now former ex lovers of Hef are coming forward to defend him and say he is super saucy in the bedroom- too much info ladies! Whatever the dish in on the Crystal/Hugh sexy times, it’s a bladdy cheap shot discussing something that’s meant to be private and personal on the radio or with anyone else for that matter! Poor Hef, he just tried to be nice to this gold digging slapper and she pulled the rug right out from under him. I totally smell a tell-all book coming from Little Miss Crystal! So not classy.
Life imitating art
Life sure is dramatic for Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester- on-screen and off! Leighton is currently embroiled in a seriously messy lawsuit with her own mom Constance! For those of you who don’t know, Leighton didn’t have the most picket-fences style upbringing, she was born in the slammer because her mom was in there for some drug dramaz! Anyhoo, Leighton and her mom are in a lawsuit over moolah- what else!? Leighton laid a lawsuit against her mom for stealing money that she gave for the care of her sick little brother. Constance apparently stole this money and used it for botox and hair extensions! Leighton says her mom claims they had an oral agreement that she would pay Constance a monthly allowance of $10,000, but Meester says that’s absolutely untrue AND her mom is threatening to sue her for $3 million, if she didn’t start ponying up the cash! Dramaz. So now Constance is suing Leighton back and now claiming that Leighton beat her with a bottle last year and is suing her ass! Oy vey, sounds totally dodgy. Good luck to Leighton!
Karma… gotta love it
Karma is a bitch! Douche lord Jesse James sure is feeling it! He’s officially been dumped. Good, after what he did to Sandy! After much speculation, it’s been confirmed from the horse’s mouth that his engagement to LA Ink star Kat Von D is overs! Officially. Kat took to her Twitter to reveal the news “I am no longer w Jesse, and out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that.” Jesse is claiming the distance was the cause, he lives in Texas and she’s in LA! Mmm maybe it’s because she realized what a douche he is!
Single in the city
Gorgeous Kate Bosworth is single and ready to mingle! Kate and her boyfriend of 2 years True Blood hottie Alex Skarsgard have split! The pair who have been loved up for 2 whoppers years (this is Hollywood people) split mutually and Alex is apparently back on the scene and loving being single!
Lucky Lohan… not
Last week I dished that Lindsay Lohan was totally cash strapped that she can’t even pay for therapy! Well start saving Loco Linds because you’ve been served- again! Linds has been hit with a $1 million lawsuit by the former Betty Ford Center employee who claims the rehabbing actress assaulted her in December 2010- remember that whole dramaz? Dawn Holland claims that Linds threw a phone and grabbed her wrist after being asked to submit to a breathalyzer test. She is suing because she sustained “significant injury” and post-traumatic stress, and is seeking $1 million in damages, plus medical expenses! Wowzers. The drama never ends for this chick!
It’s the wedding of the year… well after the Royal nuptials of course! Kim Kardashian’s wedding invitations are out and the date has finally been revealed! Kim and her man Kris Humphries are tying the knot on August 20th in a super glam affair to be held in Montecino California, right near Oprah’s house! The big day is obviously going to be filmed for their show and I totally cannot wait for all the glamarama!
It’s been a good week for Cruel Intentions star Selma Blair- she became a mom! Selma welcomed her first child into the world on Monday! Selma and her man Jason Bleick are the proud parents of a bouncing baby boy! And no waiting to find out the name- the little boy is called Arthur Saint Bleick! Selma revealed “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.” Congrats!
Until next week…. Jenna xoxo
