Amy 'Frittered Money On Drug, Friends And Hols'
Star was considered a soft touch by pals in her final years, paper claims...
Amy Winehousefrittered away much of her fortune on drugs, friends and expensive holidays, it has been revealed.
The singer was estimated to be worth between £10m and £15m following the phenomenal success of Back To Black, but there was just under £3m left after debts and taxes were paid off in the wake of her death last year - at the tragically early age of 27.
Newspaper the Daily Mail claims that she spent £1m on drugs between 2006 and 2008 and splashed out £500,000 on a holiday in St Lucia lasting 18 months.
She also spent £500k launching the career of her protege and goddaughter Dione Broomfield, paid Blake Fielder-Civil £250k in a divorce settlement and spent £130k on rehab treatment for her pal Alex Foden.
A friend told the paper: "Before Amy died, money was being leeched off her left, right and centre. It was like taking money off a baby when it came to Amy - she couldn't stop giving it away. Mitch knew that most of it had probably been spent already."
We recently reported that her estate was to be split between her parents, with her ex-husband Blake getting nothing.
