Amy Winehouse Dad Says No to Biopic


Mitch Winehouse would 'never' allow music to be used.

If anyone is cashing in on Amy Winehouse now that she's dead, it's going to be her family.

Mitch Winehouse, the deceased singer's father, has said that despite rumors a biopic will be made about the singer--at one time, her ex Reg Traviss was allegedly approached to direct--he will never license her music for such a venture.

"It would hardly be a biopic without the music and we'd never allow the songs to be released," he told the Daily Mail.

But when it comes to Papa Winehouse himself using his daughter's image, say, for a "heartfelt and revelatory memoir," that's all well and good.

Winehouse is indeed planning to pen such a tome, though he has claimed that all of the proceeds will go to the charity he runs in his late daughter's name.

"The plan is to help all children," he said. "Not just rehabilitation, not just substance abuse. It's to help all children in need."

Because who better to trust with children in need than Amy Winehouse's dad?
