Winehouse left £3m
Wednesday 28 March 2012
Amy Winehouse left almost £3 million following her death last year.
The Rehab singer, who fought a lengthy battle with drink and drugs, left gross assets totalling £4,257,580 when she died last July.
But after debts and tax were paid, it left £2,944,554.
Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning at her flat in Camden, north London, with an inquest recording a verdict of misadventure.
The 27-year-old singer, who had two hit albums during her lifetime, had not made a will and the money goes to her family. Her father Mitch is the administrator of her estate, according to newly-released probate documents.
Winehouse's former husband Blake Fielder-Civil does not receive any of the estate.
