Today’s top gossip:

Amy Winehouse is apparently being looked after by concert promoter and media personality David Gest as she struggles to cope with her well-documented problems with drink, drugs and her recent divorce from Blake Fielder-Civil.
Gest, who was introduced to Winehouse by ex-Busted member Matt Willis, took the ‘Back To Black’ singer out to dinner at a London pub to raise her spirits. However, the evening didn’t go to plan, as Winehouse allegedly burst into tears in the bar. She was later pictured leaving the pub looking bleary-eyed and with scratches on her arms (Daily Mirror).
