London: A drunk Amy Winehouse insulted the King of Zulus when her partner Reg Traviss took her to a royal dinner.
Winehouse attended the launch of an African-themed restaurant drunk and with her bangers out before insulting the King of Zulus Goodwill Zwelthini, who was there as a special guest.
The pair arrived late, with Winehouse heavily drunk, before taking their seats at the head table.
While the rest of the 200 diners gave the king a standing ovation when he entered the room, Reg was dragging Amy on to her feet in a bid to show some respect.
The king then made a 15-minute speech which Amy ignored as she dozed off on Reg’s lap in full view of the king.
“It was embarrassing. Amy was in a state. People were cringing. Before the king arrived she was downing glasses of wine and snogging the face off Reg. She completely insulted the king during his speech. Amy showed no respect,” The Sun quoted a source as saying.
At one point, 26-year-old Winehouse was talking to people on her table with her boob hanging out of her dress and Reg had to keep tucking it in.
Reg’s arm was permanently wrapped around her and he kept kissing her on the cheek while attempting to control her antics.
At 9pm he escorted the Rehab singer through the Shaka Zulu Restaurant in Camden to the back door, where he put her in a cab.
