The late Amy Winehouse’s $4.66 million estate will go entirely to her parents, it was reported Wednesday.
The UK Sun reports that probate documents show that the Back to Black singer left a fortune worth an estimated £4,257,580, but after all of her debts and taxes were paid, just £2,944,554, or around $4.66 million, were left in her estate.
According to The Associated Press, Mitch Winehouse, the singer’s father, is listed as the administrator of her estate.
Blake Fielder-Civil will get nothing from Winehouse’s estate. The two were married and divorced in 2009. E! News reports that Fielder-Civil is actually still in prison after he was convicted for a burglary to pay for his drug addiction.
However, a friend of Winehouse told the Sun that something would probably be left for Fielder-Civil, claiming that she still loved him. "Had she made a will, Blake may have well been left something...not cash, perhaps an investment. Amy still loved him when she died. The way things are, Mitch and Janis have been handed the estate,” the friend said, adding that Winehouse likely had “no idea” how much money she had.
Winehouse died at the age of 27 on July 23, 2011. She was discovered in her London home and an investigation found that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning. Winehouse's debut album was called Frank, which she released in 2003. She won Grammys for her 2006 album, Back to Black, but never released another album in her lifetime. Unreleased recordings were used to release Lioness: Hidden Treasures last December.
