TROUBLED British singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her flat in north London.
The Grammy award-winning soul singer struggled with well-documented drink and drug addictions. Her death is being treated as unexplained.
"Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square shortly before 4:05pm today, Saturday 23 July (0105 AEST Sunday), following reports of a woman found deceased," a police statement said.
"On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.
"Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."
London Ambulance Service had been called to the flat at 3:54pm and sent two ambulances.
Winehouse rocketed to fame after winning five Grammy awards off the back of her 2006 second album Back to Black and the hit single Rehab.
In the run-up to her live return, Winehouse spent a week at an addiction treatment clinic in London, reportedly at the suggestion of her father, Mitch, over concerns that she was drinking too much before her shows.
But Winehouse pulled out of her European comeback tour following a disastrous opening performance in Serbia on June 18.
She was booed at the performance in Belgrade, as she appeared to be too drunk to sing.
About 20,000 people gathered for the highly-promoted concert at the sixth-century Kalemegdan fortress, but many soon left.
During the concert, which lasted about 90 minutes, Winehouse could only mumble some of the lyrics, failing to
follow her band.
Winehouse left the stage twice, with many fans showing their displeasure despite her band's attempts to calm the crowd.
She had also been scheduled to perform in Istanbul, Athens, Bilbao in Spain, Locarno in Switzerland, Italy's Lucca festival, Switzerland's Paleo Festival in Nyon, Nova Jazz and Blues Night in Wiesen, Austria, and Poland's Bydgoszcz Artpop Festival.
Amy Winehouse Falls Over, Forgets Words, And Mumbles Her First Performance Out Of Rehab [Video]
» by Jason Weintraub June 19, 2011Despite several reports of Amy Winehouse cleaning up her act and performing a near flawless set in London's Club 100 a few days ago, it seems like she has left way to early out of rehab.
At the start of her European tour in Belgrade's Kalemegdan Park, Amy appeared on stage opening with “Just Friends,” and showed the same Amy we've seen for awhile.
Attempting to take off her shoes she immediately falls over, gets back up stumbles around, and finally mumbles some words to the song and attempts to shoutout her band members where she forgets most of their names.
