London: Amy Winehouse met her mother for lunch the day before she died, and told her “I love you, mum”.
The multi-millionaire singer had repeatedly tried but failed to overcome her addiction to alcohol, particularly vodka, and drugs.
Amy met her mother Janis in Camden and Mrs Winehouse said her daughter had “seemed weary, but that wasn’t particularly unusual as she always went to bed late. Her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me”.
As mother and daughter kissed on the doorstep of Amy’s home, she said: “I love you, Mum”, reports the Daily Mail.
“They are the words I will always treasure and always remember Amy by,” said Mrs Winehouse, who lives in Enfield, North London.
In a statement, the singer’s family said: “Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece.
“She leaves a gaping hole in our lives. We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time,” they added.
