Amy Winehouse’s father, Mitch, revealed that despite the fact that the late singer went to the same school, she was far from being friendly to music icon Adele.
Speaking at the Design Museum’s Beyond The Music event, Mitch admitted his daughter “ignored” Adele when their paths crossed just weeks after hitmaker Chasing Pavements released his debut album.
It comes after Adele, who previously believed Amy inspired her to learn how to play the guitar, admitted she was afraid she could get out of hand like the late singer who died of accidental alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27. years.
‘Not so generous’: Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch talks about late singer (who left in 2008) ‘IGNORED’ Adele (right earlier this month) when they crossed paths
Speaking to Richard Eden of The Daily Mail, Mitch said: “Adele was so generous to Amy. Amy, on the other hand, was not generous to Adele.
“I was playing billiards with Amy once in Camden Town and [her] Catriona’s best friend enters with Adele.
“Adele’s first album came out and Catriona said, ‘Amy, Adele came to say hello.’ And Amy completely ignored her. She might be a little like that.
In discord? Speaking at the Design Museum’s Beyond The Music event, Mitch admitted that his daughter “ignored” Adele when they crossed paths despite attending the same school.
Adele and Amy attended the BRIT School of Performing Arts and Technology in London.
The Hello star admitted last year that she feared she might spiral out of control like Amy, who struggled with drug and alcohol addiction before her death.
Speaking to Vogue, she said: “I became really famous right after Amy Winehouse died. And we watched her die right in front of our eyes.”
“I have always had a very close relationship with alcohol. I have always been very attracted to alcohol. This is what kept my father from me. So I’ve always wanted to know what’s so great about him.”

Adele said she started playing the guitar because of Amy Frank’s first album, released in 2003.
She said, “She means more than any artist to me. Because she was British. Because she was amazing. Because she was tortured. Because she was so funny.
Adele told how she felt uncomfortable with fame, and at some point she even thought about quitting music altogether.
Ultimately, Adele decided to become “reclusive” for a while to help her cope with her rising fame.
Amy rocketed to stardom after the release of Frank in 2003 as she achieved both critical and commercial success with her debut, as her jazz-inspired vocals won fans around the world until the release of her second album, Back To Black, three years later.

As she climbed higher on the ladder of fame, she discovered her demons – in alcohol, drugs, as well as eating disorders, which her brother Alex insists contributed to her death.
In 2011, an investigation issued a verdict of an accident after finding that she had 416 milligrams of alcohol per deciliter in her blood.
A second investigation in 2013 confirmed that she had died from accidental alcohol poisoning.
In a June 2013 interview, her brother Alex said he believed her eating disorder and subsequent physical weakness to be the main cause of her death.
He said, “She was very bulimic. It’s not a revelation – you knew just by looking at her…
“She would eventually die if she walked, but what really killed her was the bulimia… I think it made her weaker and more susceptible. If she didn’t have an eating disorder, she would be physically stronger.”
She said: “I have always had a very close relationship with alcohol. I’ve always been very fascinated with alcohol… So I’ve always wanted to know what’s so great about it.”
