Amy Winehouse’s Dad Gives Away Her Clothes

Grieving fans of singer Amy Winehouse who passed away on Saturday were rewarded for their loyalty to the star. The fans, many of whom held a vigil outside Amy’s $4 million flat for 6 days straight, watched yesterday as her parents, Mitch and Janis and her brother Alex, entered Amy’s flat to begin clearing out her possessions.

But instead of putting everything up on eBay, the fans were stunned when Amy’s dad emerged from the flat with an armful of clothes – and began giving the items away.

“These are Amy’s T-shirts. This is what she would have wanted – for her fans to have her clothes,” said Mitch as he distributed the clothing to Amy’s surprised fans.

According to The Sun, Londoner Brigitte Pividal, 52, was left clutching one of the Back To Black singer’s red vests. She said: “I will cherish this for the rest of my life.”

Another fan was given one of Amy’s favorite white tank tops which she wore over her own clothing.

Something that Amy’s dad not give away were her treasured pair of ballerina slippers (above right), which he tucked into his back pocket for safe keeping.

Even in death Amy was able to touch her fans in the most intimate way, via her father, through the precious joy of giving.

    …….i hope those clothes were clean..hell im just saying i love amy but she didn’t appear to be the cleanest chick….

    but that was real sweet of her dad….kudos.. ….

  • Anna

    Taylor Hicks is going to look like Mitch Winehouse in another decade.
    Curious as to how many of the fans will sell the shirts on ebay.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco aka Hippie

    @Ashland those clothes aren’t clean and they arent going to wash them

  • KayCeiSoul

    That was very genuine of him. Probably not a lot of folks could or would actually *wear* them – she was probably 80lbs soaking wet.

    But what a beautiful gesture.

    However….. :coffee:

    DAD didn’t go to E-Bay, but some of those receivers surely will.

    Not to change the subject but Sandra you should do a post on Project Runway last night. Rafael Cox is a local designer from Atlanta. He got sent home tho last night but he designed dresses for D.Woods, Diamond from crime mob and Kaleena from Dirty money. Alot of people think Project Runway is racist and they dont give us a chance. Idk tho. They seem pretty fair to me.

    That chick in the pic with the sunglasses on, looks like she is pulling a “Eddie Long” sniff.

    that was nice of pops and if most of them folks handing out are tru fans i doubt they are the ones that will be quick to throw any of that up on ebay and at the same time its hard to verify that its really her stuff unless you happen to be one of the people pictured receiving an item.

    Sorry to hear that Sam-that’s messed up but you made me think of what happened to me. A few years back I was moving & cleaning and went through some old boxes with clothes that I hadn’t worn in years, and I “found” 4 stacks (exactly the amount you lost-no joke) that I had forgotten about :shrug: I thought that I’d hit the lottery that day.

  • SamYell JacksEm is AWESOME

    @Yall

    This is why you are one of my favorite SR readers, you know what to say & when to say it! Alot of these other people :lipssealed: not so much! I would hope her father wouldn’t pass out soiled clothing, and long as it wasn’t her undergarments does it really matter? :shrugs:

  • Peachizz

    LOL ELove ya killing me w/ that Eddie Long pic LOL..
    RIP Amy
    Rather then someone else selling the stuff on ebay or elsewhere, not only was it thoughtful but the fans will cherish the articles of clothing for the rest of their lives(Some* will sell them thought).

  • ohpretty1

    I know that couldn’t have been easy so soon after her death, but kudos for it. Such a selfless act.
