Gossip: Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's lungs have been severely damaged from smoking crack cocaine and cigarettes.

Amy Winehouse’s crack cocaine habit has severely damaged her lungs, her father says. The troubled British singer, 24, was rushed to the hospital last week after fainting at her home. Her father, Mitch Winehouse, said doctors have diagnosed an irregular heartbeat as well as an early form of emphysema, the irreversible lung disease usually found in much older patients. “With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes, her lungs are all gunked up,” said the elder Winehouse. “But if drugs mean more to her than breathing properly, then so be it.”
