Personal items belonging to Amy Winehouse have been stolen from her Camden home, according to reports this morning (August 11).
It is reported that one of Winehouse’s former acquaintances has taken copies of unreleased tracks, lyric books and letters from her home, including one of her favourite guitars and lyrics scribbled for her third album.
According to The Sun, Winehouse’s father Mitch has been informed and is said to be “livid” about the theft. He has also reportedly vowed to track down the culprit.
A source said of the theft: This is such a sickening shock to the family. That someone would stoop so low. They can’t get their heads around it. Mitch is livid. The family, record label and management are months away from deciding what to do with any unreleased music. For that to be taken out of their hands is horrible.
The source added that they believed the singer’s father would be willing to allow the culprit to return the items, before he contacts the police. They added: “Mitch is willing to give whoever has stolen the items a chance to do the right thing and put them back so it doesn’t have to get messy.”
An investigation into the singer’s death is currently ongoing.
