Amy Winehouse‘s father Mitch has claimed his daughter Amy may have been pregnant prior to her death.
Winehouse made the claims about his late daughter on Australian TV show ‘Weekend Sunrise’. He stated that Winehouse had planned to marry her long-time partner Reg Traviss, and may have been pregnant at some point before her death in 2011.
In the interview, shown early this morning (August 16), Winehouse talked about his issues with the documentary movie ‘AMY’, before moving on to the subject of Traviss and pregnancy.
“She was with Reg, they were going to get married. I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but she thought she was pregnant at some stage”, Mitch stated.
Winehouse had been with Traviss for two years before her death, and her father’s comments don’t make it clear when Amy believed she was pregnant.
Winehouse also commented on why he is unhappy with the movie, focusing particularly on the aspects of Amy’s life that are left out, and what he feels is an implied message in their absence:
“None of Amy’s staff are in the film. None of the people she made music with are in the film. Her boyfriend Reg isn’t in the film. Why isn’t Reg in the film? Because they don’t want to show Amy as having a normal relationship. Amy was surrounded by her friends and her family all her life. To give the impression she was on her own is frankly criminal.”
“I can’t say too much because we are in the middle of a legal battle”, he continues, “I don’t know whether I mentioned this to you before, but we are making a film which is going to address all these issues,”
Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011. The movie ‘AMY’, about her life, was released earlier this year.
