Amy Winehouse Is Banned From the USA

Amy Winehouse Is Banned From the USA

If you were planning on seeing Amy Winehouse in concert in the United States, you may want to cross your fingers, as the Rehab singer currently is banned from entering the country.

Speaking to 'This Morning', Amy's father Mitch claims that his troubled daughter was duped into signing a drug possession confession - and now she cannot get into the USA.

Apparently, Amy was asked to sign paperwork after her recent arrest for cannabis possession in Norway. Without getting legal advice that could easily have been afforded, Winehouse gave her John Hancock without knowing what she was signing.

Mitch said of the situation, "It (the marijuana) didn't belong to her, it belonged to someone else on the tour. They arrested Blake, Amy and the person who was responsible. They only released them after they signed a form, which they were told was a release form," he said.

Amy's dad added, "It (the form) was in Norwegian. It was actually a confession, so this is being dealt with now by the Norwegian authorities and the British consulate because the ramifications of that are that she now can't get into the States and she was meant to go next week."

Currently, there are motions in action trying to lift the ban, but whether or not Amy will be able to make the trip as scheduled is still up in the air.
