It seems that Amy Winehouse is definitely past being damaged goods, and has entered the realms of “DON’T TOUCH THAT WOMAN WITH A BARGEPOLE!”
Mark Ronson, the producer of Back To Black, as well as the man behind Version, which included an Amy Winehouse cover of Valerie by The Zutons, is now at risk of losing his girlfriend because her family don’t like his ties with such a train wreck as Winehouse.
His links to the Rehab singer, has upset the parents of his girlfriend Cosi Theodoli-Braschi, and that may just be enough to finish the relationship off entirely.
A friend of the young music producer told the Daily Mail:
“Cosi’s parents are going mad over all the scandalous coverage Amy Winehouse is getting lately. They know Mark is friends with her and are worried about what kind of world he is dragging their daughter into.”
“They think it’s crazy and have asked her to dump Mark immediately. They’re a well off, respectable family and they don’t want to be associated with any dodgy, seedy goings on.”
“Mark doesn’t like having to hide his love for Cosi from the world. As far as he’s concerned he works with Amy and has no involvement with her drink and drug troubles, so it should have no bearing on his relationship.”
It seems that because of Mark and Amy being seen as chummy, him and Cosi have had to start hiding the fact they are still an item, and instead see each other on the quiet. Well they were until this story appeared in a national British newspaper, and then on blogs read by people around the world.
I have sympathy for Ronson, because it’s clear he hasn’t actually done anything wrong. It’s not his fault Winehouse seems to be on the path of self destruction that she has chosen to follow, but as he’s her friend, he’s remaining loyal.
If I were Cosi, I’d tell my parents where to go.
