Was Amy Winehouse secretly engaged to Reg Traviss before she died of mysterious causes?
Amy may be gone, but the rumors about her tragic life still persist. Some sources say the singer purchased drugs the night before her death, while her father believes that she died from alcohol withdrawal. News that she had planned on adopting a 10-year-old girl from St. Lucia was recently proved to be false, however it’s very possible that Amy did tell little Dannika Augustine that she wanted to take her home with her (there simply were no official plans for an adoption).
Anyway, since there’s so much speculation and misinformation, it’s easy to be skeptical of the recent news from a “source” that Amy Winehouse and Reg Traviss were secretly engaged before her death. According to reports, he presented her with a diamond ring, and she said yes to his proposal (unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that she wore this ring out in public — the tabloids would have had a field day if she did).
The source said of Amy’s love for Reg, “She wanted nothing more than to be his wife and to start a family with him. She wanted to get rid of her demons so badly.” So perhaps there is a touch of truth to the story that Amy Winehouse wanted to adopt after all.
Then again, Amy Winehouse and Reg Traviss were supposedly broken up before her death, so it seems highly unlikely that she was engaged to him. An argument could be made in favor of the engagement story since Reg has been spending time with her family and expressing his grief over her death, but he would still be distraught over the loss of someone he cared about whether or not he was dating her when she died.
Plus there are other rumors that Amy’s heartbreak over not being allowed to visit her other ex Blake Fielder-Civil in prison may have led to her abusing drugs or alcohol in a way that led to her death. If she was trying to get in touch with Blake before she died, she may have been doing so out of loneliness after breaking things off with Reg Traviss.
Whatever the case, hopefully all these rumors will soon die down so that Amy Winehouse can rest in peace.
