(Newser) – Amy Winehouse may have brain damage as a result of two overdoses in the past year where she binged on crystal meth, heroin, and cocaine, reports the Sun. In addition, the "Rehab" singer convulsed “like a scene from The Exorcist" and displayed “multiple personality traits” after consuming an “inhuman” amount of hash in July, a friend says.

"The future is bleak, bleak, bleak," said the friend. “She had smoked an inhuman amount of hash which resulted in acute cannabis poisoning. It’s thought she had been smoking it for 36 hours. She is in need of years of psychiatry and medical treatment if she has a hope."
