Mitch Winehouse defends sale of Amy's former Camden home
Now that Amy Winehouse's north-west London home has been put on the market, her family have been forced to defend their decision to sell the property after fans slammed the move.
The late singer's father, Mitch, took to social networking site Twitter last night (May 31) and explained that it was impossible to keep up with payments on the 3-bedroom house and it was simply more cost efficient to sell it:
"Hi everybody. It is with regret that we have to sell Amy's house in Camden Square. It is empty and costing a fortune to secure it. Amy and I both worked on the house and she loved it so much. I hope a lovely family buys t as it is so full of love. Mitch."
"Some of you are being stupid. It costs £25,000 per month to keep house and security."
Meanwhile, Mitch's memoir on Amy, entitled 'Amy, My Daughter', will be available for purchase from June 26 and can be pre-ordered now.
