Janice Dickinson on Amy Winehouse: 'She Was Desperate'
Former supermodel and reality star Janice Dickinson, who befriended the late Amy Winehouse in London, said the singer was planning to reach out to Dr. Drew Pinsky for help. Winehouse had contacted Dickinson and Dr. Drew in the weeks leading up to her death.
"She was desperate and her life had become suddenly unmanageable and she wanted to see if I could help her," Dickinson said.
Dr. Drew acknowledged Dickinson's assertions, recalling, "Janice Dickinson, several times on my HLN program, claimed that she gave Amy my number, and that she was reaching out."
Dickinson, who once struggled with addiction, appeared on last season's "Celebrity Rehab" with Dr. Drew.
Janice also dismissed the adoption rumor, saying, "She never wanted to adopt a little girl."
While initial autopsy reports suggested Amy overdosed on a combination of Ketamine, cocaine and ecstasy, her parents believe her death was caused by alcohol withdrawal. Results of the toxicology report are still pending.
