Reg Traviss admits he is in ‘hell’ before Amy Winehouse’s funeral

Reg Traviss has fianlly spoken out, after the death of his girlfriend Amy Winehouse.

The British film director was spotted outside the ‘Rehab’ hitmaker’s North London home shortly after her death, but had until today been silent and made no comment on her tragic passing.

However, as it was confirmed that Amy’s funeral will take place today, Reg released a statement, confessing that he has been going through “hell” since her body was found at home on Saturday afternoon.

Reg was spotted at the shrine that has arisen beside Amy’s old home, along with the late singer’s parents Mitch and Janis and brother Alex yesterday and he has described the late singer as his “darling” and a “beautiful” person.

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

“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.”

It had previously been reported that the 35-year-old filmmaker was a positive influence in Winehouse’s life and he claimed that despite her reported binge last weekend, his on/off girlfriend had been making headway in beating her alcohol and drug addictions and had even started exercising regularly before she died, aged just 27.

He is convinced her death is a tragic “accident” as she was planning to go to a wedding on Sunday.

He added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: “She has been so full of life and so upbeat recently, exercising everyday and doing yoga. This terrible thing that happened is like an accident.”

Discussing the wedding, he added: “Amy kept trying to decide what to wear. She had laid out dresses to make up her mind, she was really looking forward to it.”
