Amy Winehouse Adoption: 'It's Not True'

Update-Amy Winehouse adoption, true or false? Winehouse, who died tragically on Saturday July 23rd, was reportedly set to adopt a beautiful young girl from St. Lucia. Amy had visited the island in an attempt to ditch her addiction and return to music. During her time on the island, Amy reportedly met a young girl, Dannika, 10, through her grandmother who owned a beach bar. Dannika’s grandmother Majorie told the UK Mirror,

“Amy loved Dannika with all her heart. I don’t know why Amy took to Dannika above all the other children on the island, but from the moment they met they were  ­inseparable. They would spend all day playing, horse-riding and walking up and down the beach hand-in-hand.”

Dannika’s mother, father and grandmother have all reported to the British tabloid that Amy was just short of completing the adoption process.

“Amy wanted to have a child so bad. If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process. There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her,” said Majorie.

Dannika was reportedly heartbroken,
“Amy was already my mother. I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me … She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”

Dannika’s father also provides additional information to support the families story, but Amy Winehouse’s rep denies the claim completely.

He tells TMZ,

“It’s not true” … adding, “I think [Amy] might have met her in St. Lucia, but she was in no way about to adopt her.”

Could this be a case of a family hoping to make a quick profit or a lost soul who bounded with a child and sought a new start in life? Quite frankly both scenarios are quite possible. It was widely reported that Amy was at her best while in St. Lucia – it’s a not a far stretch that Amy may have considered and even discussed the possibility with Dannika’s family – but it’s a far stretch to imagine that in her condition – Amy could take care of a child. Her reps says false. What do you think? Amy Winehouse adoption: true or false?
