Singer Amy Winehouse Died Without a Will, Intestate Heirs Are Her Parents

By March 29, 2012

Follow me on:

The speculation is over about who will inherit Amy Winehouse's estate. The 27-year-old Grammy winning singer, who died in July 2011 as the result of accidental alcohol poisoning, did not have a last will and testament, and so under British intestacy laws her parents, Mitch Winehouse and Janis Winehouse, will inherit Ms. Winehouse's probate estate. The net estimated value of the estate after the payment of debts and taxes is 2,944,554, or $4.66 million in U.S. dollars. Ms. Winehouse was married to Blake Fielder-Civil in 2007 but divorced him in 2009 and they did not have any children, so without a last will and testament Ms. Winehouse's parents have become the default beneficiaries of her probate estate.
