Troubled star Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch is happy that his daughter is trying to quit drink and drugs because the pop star almost died twice last year.
The 'Rehab' hitmaker's father has claimed that the singer is serious about cleaning up her act in St. Lucia.
And he has now revealed that last year, the stick-thin star came to death at the height of the problems.
"Stories about my troubled daughter are selling newspapers and magazines," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Hello magazine.
He added: "They don't want her to get better. But she is better. They didn't see her lying in bed for days in a dark room. She was close to death twice. We have been working a lot to get her to where she is right now."
Meanwhile, reports have come that the 23-year-old singer has been creating chaos at the hotel and has been quite a pain for holiday-makers in St. Lucia.
