Dionne Bromfield pays tribute to Amy Winehouse
Dionne Bromfield has paid tribute to Amy Winehouse on the fifth anniversary of her death.
The 27-year-old singer passed away on July 23, 2011, from accidental alcohol poisoning and her goddaughter Dionne, 20, took to Twitter and Instagram to share a sweet collage of them together.
She wrote: "Words just can’t explain how much i love and miss this women #ThinkingOfYouAlwaysAmy (sic)."
Amy’s friend, former ‘Big Brother’ contestant Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, 37, also took to Twitter to remember the late star.
She wrote: "Always in my heart. Miss u everyday, especially this one. I love you baby girl, lioness #RIP (sic)."
It was previously claimed that Amy told her close friends she wouldn’t live past the age of 27.
Asif Kapadia, the director of the documentary ‘Amy’, said: "I’ve spoken to quite a few people who said that when she was getting to 27, she was saying to them, ‘I don’t think I’m gonna get past this age.’ Because it becomes a mental block for artists."
Meanwhile, the late singer’s best friend Juliette Ashby wants people to remember Amy for her talent rather than the tragic circumstances surrounding her death.
When asked what she thinks about Amy being dubbed as a junkie, she previously shared: "That’s not the truth. She does not deserve to be known like that. It’s not fair. I want people to celebrate my best friend the same way that I do in my own head.
"Everyone looks at her and thinks of the horrible things that happened to her. I want people to focus on the fact she had a wonderful life. At the end she had clarity. She was just like you and me, she had a great life with great friends and she had a lot of fun but when it all got too big, it went wrong. That’s the truth. She loved life and she was very happy and she was no different from anyone else."
