Has become the subject of intense media scrutiny with her wild nights, missed concerts and stints in drug rehab, Amy Winehouse apparently always one to keep the public talking. The British singer has been hospitalized in London to undergo tests after fainting at her home Monday afternoon, June 16.
A U.S. publicist for the songbird, Tracey Miller, confirmed the incident, issued a statement saying, "Amy was at home this afternoon when she briefly fainted. Fortunately, her manager's assistant was there to stop her falling." The publicist continued saying, "She quickly recovered, and her father, Mitch, took her to hospital as a precaution. Doctors are unsure of the cause of the incident, and Amy is currently undergoing tests. She may be kept overnight for observation."
According to various reports, Amy had been signing autographs for her Canadian fans who had been camped outside her Camden home for most of the day. When she went to see them, said her representative, she discovered they had gone. It was then that she fainted.
No other information was available on Amy's condition or the cause of her fainting spell at press time, yet it's been reported that she's currently undergoing tests at the London Clinic in the Marylebone section of the city.
There have long been concerns about Amy's health as she's publicly battled drug problems and her personal life has frequently attracted media attention. Despite all the bad publication, she in fact is included in The Sunday Times newspaper's annual Rich List with an estimated wealth of $20 million.
