Interview with Amy Winehouse’s Father, Mitch
Amy’s dad reveals the real story behind his daughter’s life, ehr obsessions, real love and what happens behind closed doors.
Amy’s dad, Mitch, has revealed how his daughter has secretly started seeing her ex-boyfriend again, who has become an Orthodox Jew.
Alex Claire, who was Amy’s first love, and found God after he split up with her three years ago, has been hanging around the Dublin Castle in Camden Town while Amy’s been there, and cuddling up to the singer at the back of the pub.
The couple have also met secretly at Amy’s home and are starting to share meals together every few days.
Mitch slammed stories saying his daughter was reunited with her ex-husband, Blake and that they were going to get married again i the US.
“ It’s a lot of rubbish, he sells stories for money and they’re just nonsense. he’s a convicted criminal so how would he ever get into the US anyway. That just shows you what a load of trash it is. Amy told me, dad just don’t believe one word.”
Just as Amy’s brother, 30-year-old Alex, got engaged to a Jewish girl named Riva, Mitch says Amy could be going the same way.
He revealed : “ I don’t know what Amy did to her last boyfriend, Alex Claire, but he’s now a religious Jew. She’s driven him mad. He’s absolutely ultra-orthodox now and walks around with the big black hat and coat, and he wasn’t like that when he met Amy.
“ They’ve started seeing each other and getting close. He visits her at The Dublin Castle and he’s a very sweet guy. Its seems like they’re finding each other again and starting to connect.
“ Wherever she is, he pops in to sees her. They’ll have a bite to eat and talk for ages.
“ Maybe Amy will go back to him but I’m not sure she’s up for having fifteen kids and living in Stamford Hill, though you never know. She’s a very Jewish girl deep down and she really loved Alex.
“ They had a great relationship and I always liked him.
“ I know Amy trusts him, feels she can let him in, so that’s very important, and I think he’s still in love with her.
“ She was happy with Alex, that’s the last time I saw her really happy.
“ I just want Amy to be happy and I’d rather she was happy with a non-Jew than unhappy with a Jew. I want my son to be happy as well and it just so happens that he’s met a Jewish girl from the North of England and they’ve got engaged, and are getting married up there next year.
“ It’s wonderful but almost unusual that a Jewish child would meet and fall in love with another Jew in this day and age.
“ There’s another guy she’s knocking about with at the moment, Anthony Kavanagh, who she went to see in Cinderella at Milton Keynes Theatre when she disrupted the panto.
“ But he’s gay so they’re just friends. They get on really well together and he’s such a sweetheart, he’s just lost his dad and is very upset and Amy’s been comforting and consoling him. She’s been marvellous at it.
“She’s got loads of men friends but that’s not the same as a relationship. It might end up being Alex especially as she’s become so broody.
“ She loves kids and with all our little cousins she’s been talking about having a baby and feeling broody. She’s at that age where she’d like to have children.”
As we spoke Mitch blurted out that Amy was, in fact, on her way back from sheffield where she’d gone for 2 days to see her ex-husband, Blake Fielder Civil.
