Amy’s Dad Mitch announced he was starting the organization in memory of his daughter. However someone has registered the Amy Winehouse Foundation name, and now he cannot cash cheques made out to that name.
Mitch tweeted, “We all have to bombard the tabloids websites to put pressure on this d**k head who stole our foundation name.
“Instead of concentrating on allocating funding I am having to send cheques back cos (because) we haven’t got (a) bank ac (account) in that name.
“Our solicitors are all over this, but it takes time. Meanwhile we can’t get on with (the) foundation.”
