Mitch Winehouse, the father of Amy Winehouse, has been grieving since his daughter's death last weekend. He has been grieving in different ways as any person would be in this situation. He also understands that Amy's fans have been grieving. Mitch decided to give away some of Amy's belongings to her fans.
Mitch came up to fans still mourning the singer by her Camden place where she used to live and died, and gave out clothes, jewelery and more. The singer was buried on Tuesday.
Mitch said this to fans after giving away her things; "There are Amy's T-shirts. This is what she would have wanted — for her fans to have her clothes. God bless Amy Winehouse.”
There are reports from family members and doctors that Amy may have died by trying to quit cold turkey when it came to alcohol, as we reported earlier.
We will not know her cause of death for another 2 to 3 weeks.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Hope Those Items Do NOT End Up On Ebay
I am at a loss for words as Amy Winehouse had her funeral service today and is will be cremated before being buried.
According to People.com and others, Amy's father Mitch provided a somber and humorous eulogy for Amy. Producer Mark Ronson, who called Amy his musical soulmate, and produced her 2006 album "Back To Black" attended along with Kelly Osbourne. Her boyfriend of the past two years, Reg Traviss was in attendance. Not in attendance was her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil who is serving time in prison and was not granted permission to attend. Amy's father made it known that Blake was not welcome at the funeral.
The Carole King classic "So Far Away" was played at the Jewish funeral and all were asked to join in and sing. Amy is to be cremated after the service.
Music lost a woman who will now live in infamy and it could be some time til we hear a voice as powerful as Amy's. Mitch Winehouse however, lost a daughter. Imagine you having to bury your child. No matter the issues she had. No matter the people who say they all saw this coming. Burying your child or loved one is one of the hardest things I could ever imagine doing.
Mitch Winehouse had this to say at the end of the funeral;
Brittany Murphy was laid to rest Christmas Eve at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood.
Michael Jackson's memorial took place there but he was actually buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale.
A lot of Brittany Murphy's celeb friends did not attend the funeral due to Brittany's husband Simon Monjack and them not being in favor of him. I am sorry but situations like that, you put aside differences to pay your respects to your fallen friend. Respect is stronger than pride.
We still do not know what lead to the actresses death at this time.-Dr.FB
Michael Jackson is finally buried. After dying June 25th. Buried 70 days later. That's some bull right there, but now he is buried.
Let's see...a private viewing July 6th, then a memorial service of family and friends July 7th, then going to the public memorial July 7th at the Staple center and then the actual burial last night.
The burial last night was star studded with Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley, Chris Tucker, Macaulay Culkin and his girlfriend Mila Kulas. Performers included we are told Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Aretha Franklin.
Let me say this...I am glad he is buried. Finally. I don't understand the whole 5 limos and the big Italian restaurant in Pasadena after the burial service. I am upset that it took so much time to get him buried. From infighting and other things. I understand time was needed for the autopsy but after that, it should have been taken care of, but it wasn't. Was the family trying to milk Michael maybe thinking the press would not care about them anymore?
Give Jermaine time to try to put together tribute concerts that cost an arm and a leg? Give Latoya enough time to make a video? Give Joe more time to pimp his record label? Janet has been silent during all this but I would not be surprised in time she admits being upset by the way things were handled.
I am happy he is finally buried but upset at the not so classy way it was handled. The Jackson family really is something else.
DJ AM was laid to rest yesterday where his girlfriend Hayley Wood, Nicole Richie, Travis Barker and others at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary.
The service lasted only 15 minutes. There will be a public memorial tonight at the Hollywood Palladium which will be like a 12 step program and they ask if you do attend, you leave what you saw there and do not report on what happened.-Dr.FB
So an update on the story we told you last week about Michael's body finally being buried at Forest Lawn. His body is at Forest Lawn, just not buried.
He is in the freezer. Katherine Jackson has visited several times since he was put there last week.
No wonder celebs are still dying big time. We all heard the whole thing about deaths travelling in packs of 3. Well, what happens when one of the 3 doesn't get buried for a while? Since Michael's passing, big name celebs have been dying left and right. Such as John Hughes.
There is no scientific fact to this at all but you guys know it has been crazy how many people have passed since June 25th. I am just not happy to know he is still not frickin buried and the autopsy report is done.-Dr.FB
I never in a million years thought I would have to write a title like that.
As we told you last week, Michael Jackson will be buried at Forest Lawn. This weekend, he was finally laid to rest there.
While the Estate Court Room was turned into a circus yesterday by two women claiming they were Michael Jackson's real baby momma's, with, yes, a real life Billie Jean claiming the kid is hers, some stuff was taken care of. AEG and Sony's deal to make a movie of the MJ rehearsal footage is going through and will be released Halloween weekend with the DVD to follow shortly. Jermaine can now make money off his brother's passing as his version of "Smile" will be hitting I-tunes this week. Jermaine performed it at Michael's funeral.
The madness continues but thankfully, Michael Jackson has been buried. The word is out if he will finally be able to rest in peace however.-Dr.FB
