New stories about the days leading up to Amy Winehouse’s death are constantly being printed. Yesterday it was the news of her secret adopted daughter and now a drugs ‘fixer’ has confessed that Amy bought £1,200 worth of drugs the night before she died.
Now whether or not what Tony Azzopardi, the London fixer, says is true, fans, family and friends are still unaware as to how exactly the troubled singer died.
The 56-year-old, who was introduced to Amy by her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, is due to be interviewed by police today. He claimed he wanted her family to ‘know the truth about what happened’.
Azzopardi told the Daily Mirror he bumped into the singer in a black cab near The Eagle pub around 11:30pm on 22 July even though several people had previously claimed to have seen Amy outisde the Good Mixer bar in Camden that night.
Azzopardi said the Back to Black singer asked him to help her buy some drugs and they took a taxi to West Hampstead where he made a phonecall to a local dealer. Azzopardi claims Amy gave him £1,200 for half an ounce each of crack and heroin. The 27-year-old then dropped him off in Archway before heading back to her Camden home.
Despite what Azzopardi has said, police revealed that they found no drug paraphenalia at Amy’s home, her family have also rubbished these claims saying Azzopardi’s story does not match up with Amy’s movements.
It will be a long wait before the cause of Amy’s death is revealed as toxicology test are yet to come back, but the conflicting reports and the news that Amy may have taken drugs before her death must be heartbreaking for her family.
