Amy Winehouse Family 'Left £180k In Estate'

Late star's fortune reported to have been eaten up by debts and costs...

Amy Winehouse's family are reported to have been left with less than £180,000 after settling the late star's bills and debts.

Her parents had been anticipated to share £3m from the estate of the singer, who died in 2011 at the age of 27.

But the Sunday Mirror reports that the six music companies owned by Amy had assets of just £176,991 when things were totted up.

Apparently her estate was hit hard by legal fees, mortgage payments, security costs and taxes.

Digital Spy recently quoted Amy's dad Mitch Winehouse as saying of the house: "It was an incredible drain on our resources. We had to have a lot of security and it cost us an absolute fortune."

Amy has also been in the news recently because there is a prospect of a road being named after her in north London.
