Amy Winehouse’s mother is controlling her spending by restricting her to a ?300 a week budget. Janis Winehouse, 52, is so worried about her daughter she controls the rest of her income and only gives her the pocket money to prevent her spending more on drugs.
In an interview with First magazine, she has also revealed she no longer recognises her own daughter. She said she sends her daughter text messages saying: “Where are you, what planet are you on? Call me.” But the pharmacist, from Barnet, north London, said: “Amy is playing Russian roulette with her health and musical gift. “She’s lost herself. We’re not talking about my Amy. It’s not someone I recognise. She has become her own stage creation.” Source
