Amy Winehouse "Freaked Out" Over Adele's Success
Producer pal Mark Ronson claims Amy felt 'competitive' towards Adele...
The producer claims Amy felt "competitive" towards the Someone Like You singer after her sophomore album 21 broke records across the globe, but insisted the late star was still a fan of Adele and her music.
Speaking about Amy to The Village Voice, Ronson revealed: "She was in a bad state, God knows why. I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out.
"She liked her, but Adele's success was making Amy feel upset, competitive, restless."
He added: "Anyway, we lost touch briefly. And before she and I could really start the process of beginning a new album, it was too late.''
Adele's 21 record, which notched up 18million worldwide sales last year, has since become the best-selling album of the 21st century - knocking Amy's Back To Black LP into second place.
Following the 27-year old's death in July 2011, Adele paid tribute to Winehouse in a blog post entitled 'Amy Flies In Paradise', where she revealed she was "inspired" by the Rehab hitmaker.
