We’re finally starting to get new information about Amy Winehouse’s last days and what may have led to her death. A “friend” of Amy’s just came forward claiming he helped her buy £1,200 worth of drugs the night before she died.
Tony Azzopardi is scheduled to be interviewed by police after claiming he helped her buy drugs. He met Amy outside The Eagle bar, close to her home in Camden, North London, at around 11.30pm on Friday July 22, where she asked him to help her obtain some narcotics. That was the night before her death.
According to 56-year-old Tony, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, they took a taxi to nearby West Hampstead where he made a call, and shortly afterward someone they both knew arrived and sold Amy half an ounce each of crack cocaine and heroin.
Later she dropped him off at home, and Tony – who met the late star through her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil - added: “She gave me a kiss on the cheek and that was it – the last time I saw her. She looked good, you know, fit – like she’d been clean for a while and filled out a bit. I couldn’t believe it when I found out she was gone.”
Of course she met him through Blake. Makes perfect sense. Amy had previously said that her entire marriage to Blake consisted of them getting high.
Just last week Amy’s father Mitch said that Amy had been drug free for three years and had recently quit drinking, but it’s pretty obvious that wasn’t the case.
Amy’s hair stylist Alex Foden even confirmed that Amy was back on drugs. He was worried she would die a few weeks before she passed, after her horrible performance in Serbia, which led to the cancellation of a planned European tour.
He told BBC Radio 5 Live: "The two weeks leading up to it [her death], I was talking about it a lot. Just because of the Belgrade gig, it was just so obvious. I'd never seen Amy on that level, I burst out crying because I know how hard it is."
Back to Tony. He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I want Amy’s family to know the truth about what happened. I want to help them out – but I’m worried about my safety.”
Amy’s toxicology reports should be in within the next week, which will hopefully give the family and her fans some closure on her death.
