Amy Winehouse Wanted Kids With Boyfriend Reg Traviss, Report Claims

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

TRAGIC Amy Winehouse was planning children with her beloved boyfriend Reg Traviss.

The singer — who died last month at her home in London — had a five-year plan to settle down and start a family with the film producer.

Winehouse reportedly told friends that her and Reg’s desire to have children was the main reason she was so desperate to quit booze and drugs for good.

“Reg was besotted with Amy and she wanted to get rid of all her addictions so she’d have a better chance of falling pregnant,” an insider told Britain’s Now magazine.

Recent reports claimed Winehouse had “replaced drugs with alcohol” prior to her death.

“The problem was that she replaced drugs with alcohol. White wine was her main drink and sometimes she would wake up and drink,” said Kristian Marr, a close friend of the late singer. “It meant she lost track of days — for Amy there was no day or night, no Monday or Friday.

“Three months ago I popped round to her house one afternoon, found her asleep on the kitchen floor and had to help her to bed. I was worried about Amy’s drinking but at the same time relieved that drugs were no longer part of the equation.’

“She’d be at home on her own bored and having a drink because she couldn’t go out anywhere without the world staring at her.”

While the cause of her death is not yet known, Kristian — a musician who had known the star for seven years — explained Amy thought drugs were a “dead end” and “old school”.

“The crazy thing is that recently I hadn’t been nearly as worried about her as I once had been. I knew what she sounded and looked like when she was in a bad way and I had honestly seen no sign of that for the past couple of years,” he added.

“Amy thought that drugs were a dead end and she spoke of them with disdain — they were ‘old school … in the past’.”
