As if the sight of a scarred and wasted Amy Winehouse this past year hasn't been shocking enough, details about her drug use and the effects on her brain are even worse. In a report that came out this week about the singer binging on crystal meth and having a 36-hour pot marathon, it's believe the Beehive may have brain damage.
It's been revealed that the 24-year-old singer suffered two major overdoses, with such bad convulsions that they were "like a scene from 'The Exorcist.'"
And her body is so frail from drug use that doctors were scared she would break Bones during a fit.
A close friend of Amy's revealed: Amy's first overdose in August 2007 was from cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, ketamine and crystal meth. She was advised to see a psychiatrist after displaying "multiple personality traits" that made her a suicide risk. Her second overdose was in July - when she inhaled an "inhuman" amount of marijuana that left her vomiting uncontrollably and hallucinating.
At the time, Winehouse's dad Mitch, 54, said it was a "bad reaction to her medication."
Medical personal expressed concern that Amy's brain was damaged by the cannabis overdose - she displayed symptoms normally associated with schizophrenia.
"The future is bleak, bleak, bleak," the friend said.
