Amy Winehouse has blasted her ''embarrassing'' father, Mitch, for going on TV to talk about her addiction struggles
Amy Winehouse has blasted her father for talking about her problems in public.
The troubled 'Back To Black' singer is furious with her "embarrassing" dad, Mitch, after he appeared on British TV documentary 'My Daughter Amy' last week, and spoke about her battle with drug addiction, relationship woes with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil and other struggles.
She wrote on twitter: "Why don't my dad write a song when something bothers him instead of going on national tv? And you thought your parents were embarrassing. (sic)"
Taxi driver-turned-TV presenter and swing singer Mitch, 58, has been vocal about Amy's problems in recent months, revealing she is now struggling to curb her spending.
He said: "Amy quit the drugs in her own way. In 2008, she said to me, 'Dad, I don't want to do this any more.' And she hasn't. I'm more proud of her for that than for her music - she's done it all herself.
"But she's not out the woods yet. She's a recovering addict and other problems have developed.
"Shopping is a problem. She'll go into Agent Provocateur and spend £3000 on underwear in one go."
He also blasted 26-year-old Amy's ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, 31 - who is currently undergoing court-ordered treatment for his own drug problems - and admitted he is worried they have reconciled.
He said: "Their relationship was a disaster. It was destructive and they're lucky one of them didn't die. Two addicts can't be in a relationship."
