Amy Winehouse reportedly collapsed at her London home over Christmas weekend, capping what was already shaping up to be a rough holiday season. The Back To Black singer was arrested on suspicion of assault Wednesday, turning herself over to authorities after she was accused of fighting with theater staff at a performance of Cinderella she heckled the weekend before. Winehouse’s health scare is being blamed on an ongoing chest infection (we’ve noticed the swelling) and the stress surrounding her scuffle. “She’s been told to keep a low profile and fully recuperate,” a source told The Mirror. “She has been feeling very ill of late and had a funny turn at home. She is quite unwell and exhausted after recent events but is soldiering on.”
Despite the usual celebrity meaning of “nervous exhaustion,” the source swears Amy’s weakened state has nothing to do with drugs or alcohol. “She’s doing her best to concentrate on her music and not become embroiled in drugs again.” Good thing, considering the kind of trouble she can apparently get in sober.
