Winehouse takes Goddaughter clubbing

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has come under fire after reportedly taking her 12-year-old goddaughter out clubbing in London.

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has come under fire after reportedly taking her 12-year-old goddaughter out clubbing in London.

The 'Rehab' hitmaker made her first public appearance in almost a fortnight on Thursday when she attended a fundraiser at the Dingwalls bar in Camden, north London, to raise cash for her old haunt, The Hawley Arms, which was burnt to the ground back in February.

But she became embroiled in a fracas on the streets of London hours later when she allegedly assaulted a photographer and a member of the public.

And her behaviour has been criticised - because young Dionne Bromfield witnessed it all.

The child was photographed looking shocked as Winehouse fell drunkenly to the ground.

A source tells British newspaper The Daily Mirror: "Amy was in a right state, slurring her words and falling all over the place.

"It was sad to see a young girl being left to babysit her - it should be the other way around."

A Dingwalls spokesman refused to comment on 12-year-old Dionne spending the night in the club.
