  • Winehouse warned: 'Stay straight or don't release another album'

    Amy Winehouse has been issued with an ultimatum from her record company Universal: stay out of trouble or we won’t release another album.

    Chiefs at the music company issued the ultimatum that they will only put out another CD if she stays clean.

    The warning follows a similar threat from the company’s European manager, Lucian Grainge, after Amy was allegedly filmed smoking crack earlier this year.

    Amy listened to him then – and tried to sort out her troubles in rehab. But bosses are worried she’s sliding down a slippery slope again.

    One insider revealed: ‘Amy has been reminded of her responsibilities. Unless she is clean she will not be allowed to release another album.

    ‘She took notice when Lucian talked to her earlier in the year and agreed to go to rehab. But she didn’t take it seriously enough.’

    The source added: ‘They would never release her from her deal, they would just not put an album out.’

    It is reported that the company don’t expect there to be another Winehouse album until 2009 as the singer recently scrapped plans to record in the Bahamas.

    One source told The Sun: ‘The label were not impressed. She has been warned about her behaviour and needs to keep the standards up.’
