Amy Winehouse Tributes On 5th Anniversary Of Singer’s Death
Saturday marks five years since the death of Amy Winehouse. Fans are now paying tribute to the late singer on Twitter.
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Winehouse was found dead in her home on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27. It was later determined she died of alcohol poisoning. Though in the prime of her career, the British star had struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. Her mom also said this past January that Winehouse may have suffered from Tourette’s.
