Drug fixer says Amy Winehouse bought £1,200 of crack and heroine

London drug fixer Tony Azzopardi is being questioned by the police who allegedly helped Amy Winehouse buy drugs the night before she died.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tony Azzopardi, 56, has claimed he helped singer Amy Winehouse by drugs in the early hours of July 23, the same day when she was found dead in her London home.

Azzopardi is being probed over his allegations by the police.

The paper reports that Azzopardi has come forward because he wants her family “to know the truth about what happened.” Allegedly, Winehouse was introduced to Azzopardi by her former husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

Azzopardi said he bumped into the singer in a black car near The Eagle pub around 11:30pm on July 22. He claims, Winehouse asked him to help her buy some drugs and they rode together in the taxi to West Hampstead, where he made a phone call to a local dealer.

A short time later, he says, the singer handed over £1,200 for half an ounce each of crack and heroin. He claims he last saw her when she dropped him off in Archway, North London before heading back to her Camden home.

Several people have previously claimed to have seen Winehouse outside the Good Mixer bar in Camden that night.

Azzopardi, who according to the Mirror has a long list of convictions and a history of drink and drug abuse, added: “She looked good, you know, fit – like she’d been clean for a while and filled outa bit. I couldn’t believe it when I found out she was gone.”
