Signs of the end for Amy Winehouse
Earlier in the week Winehouse made a scene at her teenaged goddaughter Dionne Bromfield's concert at the iTunes festival.
Winehouse was initially in the crowd but in an effort to support Bromfield, a source said: 'Amy staggered onstage and grabbed the mic to beg the crowd to buy her protege’s new album.'
In June, Winehouse cancelled her European tour following a horrendous display at a concert of possible drugs and intoxication as she stumbled around in a daze.
