Amy Winehouse didn't have any plans to adopt a 10-year-old girl from St. Lucia, according to her representative.
British newspaper The Mirror recently reported that before her death, Amy Winehouse was in the middle of adopting a young girl from the Caribbean island. The paper said Amy was about to adopt Dannika Augustine after meeting the girl in St. Lucia, and that the 10-year-old girl was living in poverty, as the girl's mother was single and was struggling to feed her.
But the singer's rep told TMZ that "It's not true" and added that "I think [Amy] might have met her in St. Lucia, but she was in no way about to adopt her."
The Mirror reported that Any met the little girl in 2009, through her Marjorie Lambert, 57, who runs a beach bar.
"Amy loved Dannika with all her heart," Lambert told The Mirror. "I don't know why Amy took to Dannika above all the other children on the island, but from the moment they met they were inseparable. They would spend all day playing, horse-riding and walking up and down the beach hand-in-hand."
Lambert also reportedly said Amy "used to beg me: 'I want to adopt Dannika. I want to take her to England,'" and was prepared to move to St. Lucia to a full-time mom.
"Amy wanted to have a child so bad," Lambert told The Mirror. "If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St. Lucia completing the adoption process. There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her."
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23. She was 27 years old. There is still no explanation as to what caused the British singer's death. Before her death, the "Rehab" hit-maker did spend time on the Caribbean island.
