Amy Winehouse refused therapy

Tragic singer Amy Winehouse refused to undergo therapy to overcome her alcoholism issues, according to her doctor.

The British soul star, who passed away in July (11), was reviewed by a psychologist and a psychiatrist last year (10), but her physician, Christina Romete, has revealed the star was determined to get better without the help of a therapist.


Romete told an inquest in London on Wednesday (26Oct11), "(Winehouse was) opposed to any sort of psychological therapy... She was one of the most intelligent young women I've ever met. She was very determined to do everything her way, including her therapy. She had very strict views on that."


Romete also insisted she wasn't worried about Winehouse taking her own life as the star had been making future plans the night before her death.


The doctor adds, "I was not concerned that she was suicidal. She was looking forward to the future and we were discussing plans for her upcoming birthday party. She had previously said she did not want to die and said that night, 'I have not achieved things I wanted to do.'"


A coroner ruled the Back to Black hitmaker died as an "unintended consequence" of drinking too much alcohol.
