In a move that does not come by shock, singer Amy Winehouse has canceled all her previously scheduled concerts and public appearances for the remainder of the year, according to a statement from the singer's publicist. The embattled songstress nixed her plans on the advice of her doctor, who ordered her to take complete rest, according to the statement. All of Winehouse's upcoming European gigs have been called off, with ticket refunds being offered to fans. "I can't give it my all onstage without my [husband] Blake," the statement read. "I'm so sorry, but I don't want to do the shows half-heartedly; I love singing. My husband is everything to me and without him it's just not the same." Winehouse's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was arrested in the U.K. earlier this month and formally charged with one count of "attempting to pervert the court of justice," or the U.S. equivalent of obstruction of justice. A spokesperson for Live Nation told the BBC there were no plans to reschedule the nixed gigs and that fans should return their tickets to the outlet where they had purchased them for a full refund.
London police are reportedly looking into the video of R&B singer Amy Winehouse that allegedly shows embattled star smoking crack, Singersroom have learned. As recently reported, the U.K.'s Sun leaked a clip of the tape, which shows the Winehouse, 24, smoking what the paper claims in a crack-cocaine. Now detectives at Scotland Yard are looking at the footage, the police confirmed to PEOPLE. Reports have it that the tape was given to the officers by the tabloid yesterday. As of now there is no investigation launched into the singer, a spokesman added. "Officers will be reviewing the footage and will then assess the footage and ascertain whether any action is to be taken." Shortly after the news of the alleged drug use surfaced, Winehouse was photographed leaving her East London home for an appointment with her doctor – something her rep told PEOPLE was part of her ongoing treatment.
R&B singer Amy Winhouse’s fans are urging the troubled British star to seek help after a video was released online of her allegedly smoking crack cocaine. Her label Island Records also issued a short statement saying it would support her. "We are deeply disappointed and upset by these latest revelations and are doing everything we can to offer Amy our full support in dealing with her problems," a spokesman said. He made no further comment. Winehouse, 24, has won critical and commercial success with her distinctive voice and hit album "Back to Black," and earned six Grammy nominations for the awards ceremony next month. But her troubled personal life has dominated the headlines, most recently in the Sun tabloid on Tuesday which ran a picture on its front page of Winehouse apparently taking crack cocaine. "Nosedive to Oblivion" was how the Sun described the alleged drugs binge that is said to have occurred at just after 5 a.m. on Friday. Hours later Winehouse attended court to support her husband Blake Fielder-Civil who is fighting charges related to a pub brawl. Sporting her new blonde hairstyle, a disheveled-looking Winehouse yelled: "Love you handsome, gorgeous one" as the judge discussed legal matters with lawyers, reports the Associated Press. Fans urged Winehouse, whose hits include the song "Rehab," to seek help. "Amy please get help," wrote fan Jessica on Winehouse's home page on social networking Web site MySpace. "After seeing the vid of u taking crack I just cried. I think we all new that u have a problem but always hoped the media were blowing it out of proportion, it would be such a waste for everyone if you were lost to this evil."
R&B singer Amy Winehouse will not step foot on Grammy soil after her U.S. visa application was denied by the country’s embassy in London. A spokesman for the troubled star said she was "disappointed", but had "accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery". A statement from her management company did not say why her application was turned down. Winehouse, who was fined for cannabis possession in Norway last year, has been nominated for six Grammy Awards ahead of the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday. Nominations include the major prizes of record, album and song of the year. She is now expected to perform via satellite during the ceremony instead. BBC entertainment reporter Colin Paterson said: "The blow to Amy Winehouse is that this was going to be one of the highlights of her whole career. "She was going to be on the same bill as Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Herbie Hancock - all-time greats. "The Grammys was the carrot her family and record company used as a way to persuade her to get into rehab. Now they're going to have to find another way to motivate her." The Grammys is the most prestigious award event in the music industry's calendar. This year, Tina Turner and Beyonce will perform a duet and Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, Fergie and Alicia Keys are among the other performers. Award presenters include Stevie Wonder, Prince, Tony Bennett, Nelly Furtado, Ringo Starr, Chris Brown and Tom Hanks.
Troubled singer Amy Winehouse was treated and released from a London Hospital today (Jul 29) after being rushed to the emergency room yesterday for what her spokesman said was an adverse reaction to medication. Winehouse's spokesman Chris Goodman said the R&B/Pop singer was discharged from London's University College after spending the night in observation, but he did not state if the prescribed meds were the real cause of her visit. "She had a bit of a scare yesterday because of a reaction to treatment. She was kept in overnight purely for observation," Goodman said in a statement. "Amy is at home now after leaving with her father and manager. She is having a rest."
