Mitch Winehouse responded to Paul McCartney’s comments about his daughter Amy as he appeared on “Loose Women” on Friday.
Winehouse made the comments on what would have been his daughter’s 35th birthday, with him insisting there was nothing that McCartney could have done to save the musician despite him saying he could have helped in a recent interview with GQ.
Winehouse asked: “What would he have done?”
He went on, “It’s up to the person in recovery. She had all the support that she needed.”
“A lot of people think they can fix things – why would he be able to fix things?”
However, Winehouse did add: “It didn’t hurt me that Paul said that,” before concluding that the Beatles hitmaker was a “very nice man.”
Winehouse’s appearance comes after McCartney said about meeting Amy: “I knew she had a problem, and I ended up just saying ‘hi,’ she said ‘hi,’ but afterwards I thought I really should have just run after her — ‘Hey, Amy, listen, you’re really good, I really hope you…’ – and say something that broke through the despair.”
“And she’d remember and think, ‘Oh yeah, I’m good, I’ve got a life to lead.’ But you always have those little regrets.”
Winehouse died from alcohol intoxication in 2011 at age 27.
