Amy Winehouse shocking revelations

Amy Winehouse's former assistant -- and lover -- is sharing shocking details of his time with Winehouse. The news is terrifying.

Alex Haines, who had an affair with Winehouse while her hubby Blake was in the click, tells News of the World that the singer is a crackhead, cutter, bulimic, nymphomaniac and alcoholic. At least she's not a Republican. Haines says, "I was my job to look after her. But it was impossible. I thought she wouldn't survive the year with all the drugs and self-harming. Cutting herself was her favorite pastime."

He also claims Amy would enjoy a nice big crack breakfast and continued using through the day.

"When Amy woke up the first thing she'd ask was, 'Where's my pipe?'. She often made crack pipes by putting foil on top of plastic bottles and then burning the drug," he say. "While she got it going I made toast with butter and a cup of tea for her. It was her normal breakfast."

"When Amy ran out of the drug it she would cut the bottle in half and sit there on the floor completely wired, scraping the inside to get the residue with a screwdriver," Haines continues. "She had to have a heroin and crack pipe near her or she freaked out. She'd keep taking drugs until she passed out. I reckon she spent £3,500 a week on them."

According to Haines, Amy's scary-skinny body wasn't just due to the drug use -- he claims she's bulimic, to boot. "Amy suffered from bulimia, which is why she looked so thin. Winehouse would have a massive McDonalds and then throw it all up in the bathroom. "I found my toothbrush covered in sick, and asked her about it. She went really sheepish but told me she suffered from it for a long time," Haines says. "Several times I went into her bathroom and saw sick all over the sink."

Haines also claims Amy became sexually obsessed with him. "When she drank with the drugs, she showed her worst side. She liked vodka with 99-proof supermarket tropical juice. Her behaviour became manic. She would cut herself or attack others. When she drank things got messy," Haines says "We became wrapped up in one another. When I stayed at hers (apartment), I would be asleep downstairs and there would be this little girl on the bed crawling towards me waking me up for sex."

Winehouse spent the holiday in St Lucia, where she was spotted looking much healthier than she has in the last two years. Maybe the habits Haines disclosed are becoming a thing of the past?
