Winehouse '£3,500 a week drug habit'

The train wreck christened Amy Winehouse, allegedly spent £3,500 A WEEK on drugs when her husband Blake Fielder-Civil was in jail. To put that into perspective that’s a whopping £182,000 a year (or the average Premiership footballer’s weekly wage).

"She’d keep taking drugs until she passed out. I reckon she spent £3,500 a week on them" said the popstar’s former assistant manager Alex Haines. Haines also told The News Of The World heroin wasn’t Amy’s only addiction;

"Several times I went into her bathroom and saw sick all over the sink. She lived off Crunchie bars - up to 10 at a time - packets of Haribo sweets and bottles of orange Lucozade Sport. Her heroin problems made her crave sugar."

He topped off the interview by saying he'd slept with Amy - probably one exaggeration too far.
