Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch Winehouse tells the Sunday Mirror that the troubled singer is suffering the early stages of emphysema. “With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes her lungs are all gunked up,” Mitch explained. “There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She’s got 70 percent lung capacity.” Mitch also warned Amy’s drug dealers and addict pals like Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty should stay away from his daughter. “I’m saying to those drug dealers, and they know who they are, if they are supplying crack to Amy, then they’ve got to take responsibility,” he said. “I don’t want her hanging out with her mates like Pete Doherty either. What hope does she have if people are taking drugs around her? Already Amy says she feels better and wants to leave hospital and that worries me.”
