Winehouse Rep:

Amy Was NOT Going to Adopt

8/1/2011 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Winehouse Adoption
Amy Winehouse
was absolutely NOT going to adopt a 10-year-old girl from the island of St. Lucia ... despite U.K. reports to the contrary ... Amy's rep tells TMZ.

The Sunday Mirror reported Dannika Augustine and her grandmother both confirmed that Amy was about to begin the adoption process ... and both of Dannika's parents had signed off on the plan.

But Amy's rep tells TMZ ... "It's not true" ... adding, "I think [Amy] might have met her in St. Lucia, but she was in no way about to adopt her."

Thought it sounded funny. People try all kinds of things when someone dies, what a shame!

More grabby people trying to profit off Amy's death.

What's sad is that they will. People in the media will pay for this "story" even if it's made up by a bunch of grifters.

It's a shame that this little girl & her grandmother would make up such a untrue story after Amy has passed away. Amy couldn't take care of herself, why would she want to adopt a 10 year old who has parents & a grandmother to raise her? I think the kid and her grandmother were hoping for some financial support from Amy's will, not happening. Support yourselves people and let Amy rest in peace.

Yeah, that sounds more like it. Girl was too busy trying to keep it together long enough to get to the stage let alone take care of a child.

I had a feeling that was fake but I did hear that she was going to buy a jet for $55 million.

Do you guys even try to verify things before you put them out there?

WOW! What some people will do to become relevent and cash in on someone's death. They should be ashamed of themselves.
It's so true, Amy couldn't even take care of herself, never mind another humanbeing.
If you watched 28 days with Sandra Bullock, the first thing you do when you get sober is buy a plant, see if it lives a year, and if it does then buy a animal and if that animal lives for a year, then you might start thinking about having a relationship with someone.
What a terrible shame that this family would even consider doing this.

Violette-Blue:, What makes you think that the girl and her grandmother said that, because TMZ said it was in the newspaper? I would guess that TMZ didn't actually see it in the paper but heard that it was in the paper. And, even if it was in the paper, using that as a reliable source would be like using TMZ as a reliable source. If you believe them I have a $55 million just to sell you, half price!

Just because her rep denies it doesn't mean she is 'in the know'. She's a rep afterall, not family. Some matters she would obviously rather discuss with family, as opposed to a "rep".

I wouldn't be surprised if Amy was indeed hoping to adopt at some point in the near future - especially if her grandmother says it's true, and the family of the little girl have already signed the do***ents.

@Jeff. It isn't just TMZ claiming that this little girl was going to be adopted. All the news outlets have it and if you watch the news on tv they claim it also. Before you jump on me, do your research first.

I would hope she was not planning on adopting--a person who can't take care of themselves can't take care of another.

Here's the thing. To me, Amy seemed to be the type of person to do a lot of things that were out of character for her. That's typical for a people with addictions. Who knows what really went on down there.

To be honest, right now, English tabloids don't have the best reputation for breaking news. I guess we won't know the truth until somebody steps up and hacks Amy's phone.
