Amy Wino Hospitalized

Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse's father Mitch said all is fine with her after she punched a wall and burst out crying.

Thesun.co.uk reports Winehouse's fist was bleeding and she also lashed out at her own security guards and one of her nails ripped off in the act.

After the incident, she went out partying with a Celebrity Big Brother contestant.

The troubled singer is suffering from lung disease Emphysema and her face is also showing marks of a skin disease called impetigo.

"With her pale face and smeared make-up, she looked like something out of Michael Jacksons' Thriller video. It was really sad to see," said an onlooker.

But Mitch said: "Amy is doing fine."


An ambulance was called to the 24-year-old singer's house in Camden, north London and she was taken to University College Hospital at around 8.40pm.

Police were stationed outside her house as Winehouse was wheeled out in a wheelchair while wrapped in a blanket and given oxygen. Her father Mitch Winehouse was with her.

Her spokesman Chris Goodman was told that paramedics had been called, but had not been told what is wrong with the pop star.

He said: "I was told that she was in a wheelchair, but conscious.

"No one was panicking."

A spokeswoman for London Ambulance Service said: "We were called at approximately 8.40pm to an address in NW1 to reports of an adult female taken unwell.

"We sent an ambulance and a fast response car and the patient has been taken to hospital."

Winehouse, who is being treated for a crack cocaine addiction, is suffering from emphysema and was admitted to hospital after collapsing at her home last month.

Mr Winehouse said in June: "It's in its early stages, but had it gone on for another month they painted a very vivid picture of her sitting there with a mask on her face struggling to breathe. The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her."
