Amy Winehouse has cut all ties with her one-time pal and collaborator Mark Ronson, accusing the superproducer of taking credit for her fame and insisting he is now "dead" to her. Ronson helped Winehouse achieve a worldwide smash with her Grammy-winning 2006 release "Back to Black", and the pop star returned the favor the following year by singing "Valerie" for the DJ's covers compilation "Version".
The pair re-teamed earlier this year to record a song for a new Quincy Jones tribute record, but their relationship has since soured and Winehouse has blasted Ronson for using her solo success as a launchpad for his own blossoming career.
Taking to her Twitter page, she writes, "Ronson you're dead to me; one album I write and you take half the credit - make a career out of it? Don't think so BRUV." It is thought Winehouse's comments stem from an interview Ronson gave on Friday, September 17, in which he told musician-turned-TV presenter Jools Holland he had "created the tracks" on "Back to Black" from the singer's demos.
