It was an emotional interivew with Piers Morgan on his eponymous talk show, where Mitch Winehouse revealed that although he does not blame daughter Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Felder-Civil for her death, he still has some unresolved issues with his former son-in-law.

Mitch Winehouse stated that blaming Felder-Civil for his daughter's death would be, "stupid", but did admit that while Amy was alive, he warned Felder-Civil that he was "killing" his daughter.

He also clarified rumors that Felder-Civil, who is currently in jail for assault, had reached out to the Winehouse family after Amy's death.

"I won't talk to him. I'm not interested in him. And, I'm not interested in his family and I'm not interested in him. We don't want their help with the foundation. We would be a laughingstock if we recruited him into the foundation."

The foundation that Winehouse was speaking of was the Amy Winehouse foundation, which will support organizations that help young people with addictions.

Morgan pressed the issue with Winehouse, by asking again if Felder-Civil had made any attempt to contact the family.

Revealed Winehouse, "He says he has, but he hasn't. His mother, in one of the many newspaper articles that she's written since Amy's death, she says that Blake's been trying to get in touch with me. She's been trying know, but none of them have gotten in touch with me. I'm not interested in them."

Felder-Civil has long been regarded as the force that put the late singer on the path to her own destruction, by introducing her to the likes of cocaine and heroin.
