(Newser) – Amy Winehouse has teetered on the edge of death twice, her pop reveals in a new documentary about his talented, troubled daughter. The media "doesn't see her lying in bed for days in the dark," he says. "She was close to death twice. We have been working to get her to where she is now." Amy's mom rips husband Blake Fielder-Civil for her problems. He announced last week that he's divorcing Winehouse.
