*Every time someone famous dies, there’s bound to be mysterious stories that surface. They have no real source and often don’t make sense. Well, reports recently surfaced claiming Amy Winehouse that she was in the middle of adopting a 10-year-old from St. Lucia before her death.
Britain’s The Sunday Mirror reported that Dannika Augustine and her grandmother confirmed that the singer was about to begin the adoption process and the child’s parents signed off on the papers to move things along.
But a rep from the Winehouse camp denied the stories, saying everything is false.
“It’s not true,” the unnamed representative said. “I think [Amy] might have met her in St. Lucia, but she was in no way about to adopt her.”
The publication portrayed the young girl as a hearted broken fan and friend mourning the loss of her mother.
“Amy was already my mother,” Augustine revealed. “I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me. She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”
