Amy Winehouse’s neighbors trying to get her evicted

Everyone’s got a tale or two about a bad neighbor. The longer you live somewhere, the greater the odds you’re going to have some sort of feud going on. But imagine your next door neighbor is a notorious drug addict. With mental health issues. They’re probably going to make your life a living hell. Or imagine you’ve got a celebrity living down the street. All the press and drama… it’d be a nightmare.

Unfortunately for a bunch of people living in North London, they’ve got both, in the form of Amy Winehouse. Her neighbors are said to be tired of the constant drama she courts, and are doing their best to get her evicted from her rented home.

Local residents have made a sting of complaints to their local council to get Amy evicted from her rented £700,000 North London flat. One neighbour told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “She’s nothing but trouble and every night she is partying. If she’s not inviting friends around to live it up she’s starting fights. I’ve already filmed some of the trouble Amy has caused on my video camera and I’ll be handing it over to the council to have a look at. Hopefully something can be done.” If the council deems Amy to be causing too much of a disturbance, her landlord could be forced to throw her out.


My first thought was, “Why in the world is Amy Winehouse still renting?” But I guess she has bigger issues to deal with than poor real estate decisions. Or maybe she’s snorted her earnings away, who knows.

The Daily Mail has an article and photos of Amy being caught with a “mystery substance” up her nose again. The only mystery here is why she’s not in jail for it. Sure it’s allergy season – but I’ve got to say, that doesn’t look like a puddle of Flonase that’s accumulated. Make sure to scroll down and view the Daily Mail’s picture of tiny Amy hiding behind this giant flattened box of Budweiser. All you can see is a bit of beehive and some skinny legs. And if she’s not careful, Amy’s going to end up living inside that box. But at least she knows she’d fit.

Here’s Amy leaving her gig at the Monarch pub last night, with a lampshade and a cardboard box to cover her face. Header image of the classic “mystery substance.” Images thanks to WENN.

    She’s dead to me now. I mean, I still love her, but I’m going ahead and making her dead to me so it won’t be such a shock when she really is dead.

  2. geronimo says:

    I’m laughing at the living in a box bit but it’s still too close to the bone. I think she’s going to have to be dead to me too, Anastasia. It’s too painful to watch anymore.

  3. Cassie says:

    I third that motion, except she’s been dead to me a long time running now. Terribly sad, but when the news breaks I don’t think anyone who’s heard of her will be shocked. She has absolutely no idea how serious her situation, nor does she seem to care.

    She’s like a thirteen year old girl who thinks it’s completely normal that her life falls apart because her boyfriend dumped her or something, except Amy has money and access to booze and drugs and no sense of when things have gone too far.

  4. Orangejulius says:

    I’m living this same nightmare with my son, but unfortunately he can’t be dead to me. Sigh. I won’t let her be dead to me either, although I’ve pretty much given up on her, sadly.

  5. bc says:

    sorry about your son, orangejulius. that’s rough.

  6. dana says:

    how tragic. i wonder what she’s living off of? adrenalin? coke? crack? i bet if she cut herself she’d bleed licquor. i kinda dont feel sorry for her because she’s well aware of what she’s doing to herself. i just wish she’d go do it somewhere where the rest of us dont have to see it! 🙄

    I salute ANYONE that’s coping with anyone with a substance issue. Orangejulius, love your son, leave Winehouse be. Let God handle her, care for your child. Your power is for your child, not for an out-of-control millionaire, far, far away.

    OT: There are spouses that have loved ones incarcerated, serving the military, hospitalized, etc. Amy Winehouse’s “Pity Party of One” is getting boring, tiresome, and frustrating. Instead of being a selfish child needing attention, why doesn’t she do some sort of charity to divert some of that negative energy?

  8. Thhbbb! says:

    somewhere where the rest of us don’t have to see it…would be where, exactly? She is a celebrity and therefore her every move is chronolized.

  9. Crux the Magic Dragon says:

    I think being ‘chronolized’ is part of the job, my friend.

  10. robin says:

    Damn I can’t belife she’s wasting her self like this. Shit I m broke as hell and I m trying to survive, I wish I culd have just half of the money she has.

  11. Diva says:

    I listen to her Back to Black CD everyday and it’s getting to the point that I get actual feelings of sadness with this feeling that it’s probably the last greatness we’ll be hearing from her.

  12. xiaoecho says:

    Thhbbb!…..does chronolized mean chronicled by any chance?

  13. Carrie says:

    Hey people, whether she’d dead or alive to you, or singing tracks on your MP3, just be grateful she’s not living next door to you. That’s all I’m saying….

  14. Crux the Magic Dragon says:

    Amen to Carrie and xiaoecho!

    Can’t wait for the ‘performances’ for Oxegen in Ireland and ‘T’ in the Park at Scotland. Get your YouTube is gear, I got a feeling this is going to be as spectacular as my fave trainwreckular Winehouse YouTube performance from the Eden Project, 2007. THAT, IMHO, was more troubling than the recent Rolling Stone interview.

  15. british bitch says:

    Amy will be fine. She´s got strong family support.

  16. geronimo says:

    Orangejulius, hang in there, and apologies if we made it sound like an easy decision. It’s not, and I’m sure you know this only too well. Good thoughts for you and your son.

    A small reminder of why Amy’s still worth the effort.

  17. Crux the Magic Dragon says:

    Surprise! She actually sounded great at Oxegen. Mea culpa:

  18. xiaoecho says:

    She DOES sound great – still off her face but her voice is back 🙂

  19. Tee says:

    Hey British Bitch, you may be right, but what support is Amy’s family getting? Must be hell for them.
    And I kinda resent that Amy has this gift of talent, and she’s just trashing it. Perhaps if promoters stopped hiring her, she might finally give serious thought to her life. But as always,it’s all about money. Notoriety brings in the dollars.

  20. paris herpes says:

    She probably lives in a rat-infested hovel at this rate. She probably doesn’t care where she lives and wants to take the whole neighborhood down with her.

  21. Jaundice Machine says:

    I hear she keeps odd hours and has a penchant for ironing (as most crackies are wont to do). She could stay with me if she agrees to some light housekeeping and splits the cost of dru-beer. If she splits the cost of beer. And cable. 😀

    She better make sure that beer is sticky green and smelly though. That’s how Jaundice likes her beer.

  22. Spoonman55 says:

    Coke girl is at it again.

    Kick her dumb ass out, and kick her dumb ass to the curb. Maybe that will wake her up to realize she is a one hit wonder waiting to die or end this train wreck so we can read about some real news!

  23. Lori says:

    I feel sorry for her. I think shes VERY talented and I hate to see her throw it all down the loo for nothing. I wish I could help her cause I think shes worth saving. Girls got loads of tallent, but sadly she’s wasting away.
