Amy Winehouse’s devastated boyfriend Reg Traviss has opened up about her final days, revealing the singer seemed “upbeat” and “full of life”.
The 35-year-old filmmaker, who dated the tragic star on-and-off for two years, accompanied her distraught parents Mitch and Janis and brother Alex to greet mourners and fans keeping a vigil outside her London home following the news of her death on Saturday.

Traviss has paid tribute to his lost love, insisting the star was enjoying exercise in the days leading up to her death and was looking forward to attending a friend’s wedding on Sunday – the day after she died.

He tells Britain’s The Sun, “Amy kept trying to decide what to wear. She had laid out her dresses to make up her mind. She was really looking forward to it. She has been full of life and so upbeat recently, exercising every day and doing yoga. This terrible thing that happened is like an accident.

“The last three days have been hell. We have suffered a terrible untimely loss and want peace now.

“I can’t describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love. I have lost my darling who I loved very much.”

An initial post mortem examination on Monday failed to determine Winehouse’s cause of death. The singer will be buried at a private funeral on Tuesday.
