Amy Winehouse's family: Documentary is 'misleading'

AMY Winehouse's family claim the forthcoming documentary about her is "misleading".
The family of the late singer - who tragically died in 2011 at just 27-years-old - say there are allegations made in the documentary 'Amy' which are "unfounded and unbalanced". 

In a statement, a spokesperson said: "The Winehouse family would like to disassociate themselves from the forthcoming film about their much missed and beloved Amy ...

"They feel that the film is a missed opportunity to celebrate her life and talent and that it is both misleading and contains some basic untruths. There are specific allegations made against family and management that are unfounded and unbalanced."

The documentary - which will be premiered at the Cannes Film Festival later this year - does a "disservice" to those suffering from addiction, the family claims.

The spokesperson added: "Fundamentally, the Winehouse family believes that the film does a disservice to individuals and families suffering from the complicated affliction of addiction.

"By misunderstanding the condition and its treatment, the film suggests for instance that not enough was done for

Amy, that her family and management pushed her into performing or did not do enough to help her."
