After recently being spotted smoking deadly crack, troubled singer Amy Winehouse has been put under 24 hours watch by family and friends.
The 24-year-old star's anxious dad Mitch wants her close pals to stay with her round the clock and keep a check on her.
Under this approach, the guard would be living with Amy and even sleep outside her room.
A friend said that Mitch was worried about his daughter and the family would be keeping a close check on the 'Back to Back' star
"Mitch realises this is crunch time. Amy either chooses life or oblivion. The family have been keeping a very close eye on her for weeks now, The Sun quoted the friend, as saying.
"In fact, her brother was with her just one hour before she was filmed smoking crack.
"But Mitch now realises that even this is not enough any more and she needs 24-hour surveillance," the friend added.
Meanwhile, two specially appointed guards have started guarding the singer's flat in Bow, East London.
