Winehouse’s family to get her $4.66M fortune

Records show Amy Winehouse left an estate worth 2.94 million pounds (US$4.66 million) after her death last year.

LONDON — Records show Amy Winehouse left an estate worth 2.94 million pounds (US$4.66 million) after her death last year.

The 27-year-old soul diva was found dead in bed on July 23 at her London home.

Probate documents showed Wednesday that she left behind assets totalling more than 4.25 million pounds ($6.7 million), with 2.94 million pounds ($4.66 million) remaining after debts and taxes. Since Winehouse did not leave a will, the money will go to her parents.

The documents list father Mitch Winehouse as administrator of the singer’s estate.

Nothing goes to her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she divorced in 2009.

Winehouse shot to fame with her 2006 album Back to Black, but struggled for years with drug and alcohol abuse.
