Amy Winehouse's father MITCH is delighted his troubled daughter is turning her back on drink and drugs and getting clean in St. Lucia - because she almost died twice last year (08).
The singer's dad insists the Rehab hitmaker really is serious about cleaning up her act, despite reports to the contrary - and is now revealing just how close the waif-life star came to death at the height of the problems.
He tells Hello magazine, "Stories about my troubled daughter are selling newspapers and magazines. They don't want her to get better. But she is better. They didn't see her lying in bed for days in a dark room. She was close to death twice. We have been working a lot to get her to where she is right now."
