"When I look at Dionne she reminds me of myself. I used to be this little girl who liked Celine Dion and singing, this beautiful sweet girl with innocent dreams," the Mirror quoted her as having said amidst tears to 3am.
"Look where I am now. Look what happened to my dreams. This isn't a life - I'm a mess, look at me.
"But this girl has everything ahead of her. She's so beautiful and she reminds me so much of myself.
"This beautiful happy girl, she is so much like I used to be. I don't want to leave her alone. I can't believe what has happened to me. I am so sad," she added.
The Back to Black singer also revealed that her jailed hubby Blake Fielder-Civil, 26, who is serving 27 months for ABH and perverting justice, was much to blame.
