Winehouse's Dad Blasts Singer's Behaviour

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has been criticised by her father MITCH for cavorting with a man while her husband Blake Fielder-Civil is still in jail.
The Back to Black hitmaker is on an extended holiday on the paradise island of St Lucia in a bid to ditch her wild ways back home in London.
The star was pictured earlier this month (Jan09) exercising and cuddling up to clean-cut former rugby player Joshua Bowman, who has since denied romancing Winehouse.
But the pictures were the final straw for Fielder-Civil, who has instructed lawyers to start divorce proceedings against Winehouse on the grounds of adultery.
And the singer's father, Mitch, was equally angered to see the shots of his daughter with another man while she was still formally married - and he made his feelings clear in an emotional phone call.
Mitch Winehouse says in new documentary Saving Amy, "I had to call Amy before she heard about it from someone else. She asked me, 'Daddy, why does he want to divorce me?'
"I said, 'You know I don't like him, but I have to admit that your behaviour with another man is not what marriage is all about.'"
Neither of the singer's parents approved of her union with Fielder-Civil - and the star's mother Janis was horrified to receive a call from her daughter in May 2007 announcing the pair had wed.
She says, "Amy called and put Blake on the phone. He said, 'Hi mum...' and I felt as if I had a knife in my stomach. Who is this nothing, calling me mum?"
