Amy Winehouse’s Mom is not surprised by her daughter’s death, given the obvious recent decline in her health and appearance over the past months. Her Mom says Amy’s hard partying ways would result in an early death.
Janis Winehouse told The Daily Mirror Amy’s death was “only a matter of time” — this after seeing her just the day before. She told the paper, “She seemed out of it. But her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me.”
TMZ reports that Amy’s death is still “unexplained.” Police issued a statement, saying, “At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained and there have been no arrests in connection with the incident.” However, more than likely that cause of Amy’s death was an overdose.

TMZ is reporting that former ladywrestler Chyna was admitted to UCLA medical centre earlier today. Initially it was thought that she had alcohol poisoning, especially due to her complicated past with the substance, but it was later discovered that she overdosed on Benadryl.
Chyna took 4 to 5 times the suggested dosage of the allergy medicine to help her sleep last night. She woke up this morning unable to walk and with intense nausea.
It looks like the WWE star is going to be fine. She’s been put on an IV drip in the ER to rehydrate and will probably be released soon.
Chyna’s substance abuse problems came to light on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab, where she openly admitted to having a severe alcohol dependency. Hopefully that addiction hasn’t been transferred over to Benadryl! That stuff can’t be good for you in high doses.
Maybe try some Sleepy time tea next time, Chyna Doll?

The regret surrounding the tragic death of Adam ‘DJ YM’ Goldstein will deepen when MTV airs his eight-episode documentary ‘Gone Too Far’ on Monday, October 12th, MTV reports.
The documentary will feature DJ AM’s meetings with addicts, along with their friends and family, discussing the struggles, causes and possible solutions of addiction. The episodes will also reveal the details of his personal addiction, predominantly to crack cocaine.
Goldstein’s mission to blow open the discussion on drug abuse in North America came to a halt when he died of an accidental overdose at his New York City apartment on August 28th. Many suspect that the excessive drug use was linked to the mental and physical trauma he suffered after a plane crash in 2008.
His death may help cement the documentary’s conveyance of the dangerous toll that drugs take on the lives of addicts, and also those around them. He is a living example of that senseless fate.
DJ AM, also known as Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his NYC apartment earlier today, according to TMZ. Early reports say that drug paraphernalia was found around his body when he was discovered. Last year, Goldstein and Travis Barker survived a plane crash that killed four others on board.
Once the news broke about his death, Shanna Moakler tweeted “My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends.”

Just a month before his death, Bennett put up a post on his MySpace page and mentioned the pain he suffered continuously from a hip injury.
Amy Winehouse has drug-related brain damage resulting from a series of recent drug binges, claims the UK Sun.
Winehouse first overdosed last year, on a combination of cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, ketamine and crystal meth. She has a fit of convulsions and began displaying “multiple personality traits.”
Winehouse has supposedly also overdosed this past July, after smoking hash for 36 hours straight, leaving her convulsing again.
“She had smoked an inhuman amount of hash which resulted in acute cannabis poisoning,” a friend of Winehouse told the paper. “You have to take a shitload of pot to suffer that severe a reaction. “It’s thought she had been smoking it for 36 hours. Amy’s fits were as bad as the convulsions she had during her overdose in August last year. No one has mentioned her meth use before – but that stuff is truly nasty. She is in need of years of psychiatry and medical treatment if she has a hope.”
