Amy Winehouse statue unveiling held up by her dad

Londoners looking forward to the debut of the life-size Amy Winehouse statue are going to have to wait a little bit longer.

Plans to unveil the bronze rendition of the late singer this month in Camden, north London, have been put on hold by her father, Mitch Winehouse, who apparently didn’t like artist Scott Eaton’s final design.

The news comes by way of Amy’s ex, Reg Traviss. “He doesn’t want anything to go up that he’s not completely satisfied with,” Traviss told the British newspaper Mail on Sunday.

A new unveiling date has not yet been set.
