Amy Winehouse's Parents Get It All
Less than a year after her death, Amy Winehouse's parents are set to receive a financial windfall from the late singer. At the time of her death on July 23, 2011, the "Back to Black" singer didn't have a will in place. Therefore, Winehouse's entire estate, worth an estimated $4.66 million after debts and taxes, go to her mother Janis and father Mitch. Based on the probate documents, the "Rehab" songstress had $6.7 million in assets with $4.66 million in debts and taxes. The good news is that ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil won't receive one dime from the troubled musician's estate. Many worried that he might be able to cash in on her assets following her death, but it isn't to be. After years of drug abuse and turmoil, Fielder-Civil and Winehouse finally divorced in 2009. Winehouse died of accidental alcohol poisoning, according to officials. She was 27 at the time of her death.
