Amy Winehouse statue reveal delayed by dad Mitch Winehouse


A statue to honor late singer Amy Winehouse was supposed to be unveiled later in September, but the big reveal will now be delayed. The reason, according to Winehouse's former boyfriend Reg Traviss, is that her father Mitch Winehouse was unhappy with the finished product.

"He doesn't want anything to go up that he's not completely satisfied with. But obviously it's never going to look exactly like her," Daily Mail reports.

The bronze memorial statue was created by artist Scott Eaton and was planned to be presented at the Roundhouse in Camden, London next week. Now Eaton has been told to redo it, with the unveiling rescheduled until 2014.

Winehouse passed away at age 27 in July 2011 due to alcohol poisoning.
