R&B singer Amy Winehouseâs mum has written a public letter to a British Sunday newspaper begging her daughter to come home for help. Last week a gloomy Winehouse, who has struggled with drugs and alcohol, was pictured in newspapers (View Photo) wandering the streets of London late at night in only a bra and jeans. Winehouse recently cancelled all her remaining planned concerts this year, saying she could not perform while her husband was in custody. Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, is being held on remand accused of inflicting grievous bodily harm on a pub landlord in an incident in June last year. “We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped — unless you come to us — anything we tried would be in vain,” wrote Janis Winehouse in a letter published by the News of the World. “I pile hope upon hope that your strong will can bend for just a moment to make that decision and come home to me. “We were terrified after we saw those pictures of you earlier this week, wandering the freezing streets of London at dawn in your underwear. “All I wanted to do was rush into those pictures and wrap you up in a big, warm blanket.” “Early fame has overwhelmed you, it’s dizzied you and muddled your mind. For a moment, forget you’re a superstar. You’re also young and vulnerable, no stronger than any of the rest of us. “You think you’re strong enough to get through this on your own, darling, but you’re not.” Considered one of the leading talents in Britain’s pop scene, Winehouse has rarely been out of the pages of the country’s tabloids which have closely followed her and her husband’s increasingly chaotic lifestyles.
