It is nearly two years now since the tragic death of Amy Winehouse, she died from accidental alcohol poisoning on July 23 2011, a death that many people feel could easily have been avoided. Her brother Alex claims it was bulimia that killed her and not the alcohol, and he revealed all to the Observer Magazine over the course of the weekend.
He started off by saying, “”Had she not had an eating disorder, she would have been physically stronger. She suffered from bulimia very badly. That’s not, like, a revelation, you knew just by looking at her. She would have died eventually, the way she was going, but what really killed her was the bulimia. Absolutely terrible, I think that it left her weaker and more susceptible.”
Amy Winehouse was just 27 when she passed away and Alex claims her problems started 10 years before her death when she started to hang out with some girls, who he claims were a bad influence on her. He said, “They’d put loads of rich sauces on their food, scarf it down and throw it up. They stopped doing it, but Amy never really did. We all knew she was doing it, but it’s almost impossible (to deal with), especially if you’re not talking about it. It’s a real dark, dark issue.”
Either way you look at it the death of Amy Winehouse was a sad and horrific loss of life for someone with so much talent, and she is still missed by many people today some two years on since her tragic death.
