Amy Winehouse has died.

This is tragic. Updates as soon as they happen.


EDIT - Being reported on BBC News and Sky News now.  She was found just before 4pm today, in her flat.  Poor, poor girl.  RIP.

BRIDE OF EDIT - No updates, other than background on BBC News.  Guess there won't be anymore details released until it is "officially" confirmed by police etc.  Her Dad is in NYC, apparently, but on his way home.

CHILD OF THE BRIDE OF THE EDIT - Monte and Avery Lipman, President and CEO, Co-President of Universal Republic Records, respectively, said this in a statement to “We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy’s family, friends and fans at this difficult time.”
