AMY Winehouse is constantly in denial over her drug addiction and continues to drink heavily, the singerâ€™s parents have told ITV News in an interview.
Mother Janis Winehouse said: â€œThe need to rescue her is enormous. Amy is in denial all the time.â€
Father Mitch, who blames his daughterâ€™s estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil for her addiction, said she is on a drug programme but is still drinking.
The 25-year-old Back To Black singer has recently been staying in St Lucia.
â€œI just want her to be okay and I would do whatever it took to make that right,â€ Janis said.
â€œAmy is in denial all the time. She probably feels trapped, her body is trapping her. But I know with addiction you do not have the choice because the substance itself directs you.â€
The interview will show footage of the star, known for hits such as Rehab and Love Is A Losing Game, drunkenly attempting to play the drums.
Â Mitch said he wants his daughter to be a â€œwhole person againâ€.
He added: â€œI tried it all â€”I said, â€˜Amy youâ€™ve got to do this, youâ€™ve got to go to this doctor, youâ€™ve got to do this, youâ€™ve got to do that, youâ€™re killing me, youâ€™re killing your mumâ€™. None of it worked.â€
He said he has seen a â€œremarkable recoveryâ€ in the star in the last six months but she still has alcohol-related â€œbackward stepsâ€.
A reunion between Winehouse and Fielder-Civil in the near future is not likely, according to her father.
â€œThe option of them being together is too horrible to contemplate,â€ he said.
â€œThey are going to get divorced and who knows whatâ€™s going to happen down the line.
â€œAmy and Blake have decided that they want to get on with their lives separately, and if they get back together again in the future and theyâ€™re both clean and they still love each other, thatâ€™s up to them.â€
Winehouseâ€™s health has been the subject of speculation over the last couple of years.
She received treatment last year for â€œtracesâ€ of the lung disease emphysema and has spent several stints in rehab. â€” BBCOnline.
