'Amy was forced on stage by bodyguards'

Amy Winehouse's ill-fated gig in Belgrade at the weekend has already entered the annals of rock legend. The star was apparently so drunk that she took off one shoe halfway through a song, forgot the names of her band, and slurred most of the songs. But a member of the support band has made a shocking claim; that Winehouse was visibly forced onto the stage, and it was clear that she in no fit state to perform.

Ana Zoe Kida whose band supported Winehouse at the gig told The Sun, 'Four British bodyguards simply pushed her to step up on stage. She did not want to and was making a scene trying to escape them. It was distressing to see, she obviously needed help.'

The singer's spokesperson said, 'Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen.'
