Amy Winehouse ‘to move to St.Lucia for good’

Amy Winehouse London, June 21 (ANI): Amy Winehouse is planning to settle in the Caribbean island, St. Lucia, sources say.

“Amy loves St Lucia and never wants to leave. She thinks the island has done her the world of good and she’s writing more than ever,” News of the World quoted a source as saying.

The Back to Black singer stayed in St Lucia for 71 days last year to avoid drugs she did in London.

Now, Amy, apparently, is trying to get herself officially recognised as St.Lucia’s citizen.”We are aware of Amy wanting to live here on a permanent basis. We have received an application and are looking into it,” an official of St. Lucia said.

However, some believe that the Grammy Award winner is trying to trick the English government from paying her taxes since Brits have to spend less than 183 days in the UK to avoid paying their taxes.

“She’s paid tens of thousands in tax already but she sees that she can avoid another huge bill. She’ll be able to keep a larger slice of her fortune this way,” an insider revealed.

However, the citizens of St. Lucia are not too keen on Winehouse settling in their island.

RJ Sam Flood of St. Lucia said: “This woman has brought over all her nastiness to our shores and she is allowed to get away with it.

“Our youths need positive role models and people who can make a meaningful contribution to our society and Amy doesn’t fit into this.” (ANI)
