Mitch Winehouse Says 'Leave My Daughter Alone' After New 'Autopsy' Documentary Airs
A new documentary called Autopsy: The Last Hours Of Amy Winehouse, the second this year to explore her legacy as well as her untimely death, aired last night on the U.K.'s Channel 5. Winehouse's father Mitch, though, wanted to mak it clear that he had nothing to do with the project, and took to Twitter to say his piece.
there is a programme Monday 28th channel 5. Last hours of Amy. What an absolute disgrace. Leave my daughter alone.— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
I've just been told it's Alex Fodden doing the doc. I hope he explains his role. Blake is a saint compared to Foden. Amy hated him.— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
Tweet @MrAlexFoden to register your disgust. Amy never saw him for at least 3 years. Will he give back money Amy gave him for rehab?— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 21, 2015
Winehouse's own role in Amy's life and relationship with the media is fairly controversial -- after he was displeased with his portrayal in the feature-length Amy, which was released earlier this year, he demanded the film be re-cut.
Nevertheless, he again referred to the new documentary (which portrays the singer's last hours as re-created by actress Kate Robinson) as "exploitation" when it aired last night.
Someone actually thinks that i am involved in the channel 5 doc. Nothing to do with us. You need to speak to Alex Foden— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 28, 2015
So doc told us nothing we didn't know. Just another exploitation of Amy by so called friends. Alex Foden you should be ashamed.— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) September 28, 2015
