Turner urges Winehouse to seek help

Legendary singer Tina Turner has spoken out in support of troubled star Amy Winehouse - urging her to seek help to deal with her "problems".

The 'Simply The Best' hitmaker, who is gearing up for a comeback world tour, praises the 'Back To Black' star's vocal talents, branding her legendary voice as "wonderful".

However, the veteran performer insists Winehouse must face the demons which threaten to ruin her glittering career.

She says: "Her problems started before the success and that is the problem. This girl's voice is wonderful, timeless. If she wants to help herself... of course she can and she must."

Earlier this month, the 'Rehab' singer avoided being charged with drug offences by British police, after a video was handed to UK authorities showing her supposedly taking narcotics.
