Amy Winehouse's father said his drug-ravaged daughter came "close to death" twice.

Mitch Winehouse said the singer was "lying in bed for days in a dark room" in the upcoming documentary "Saving Amy," according to Hello! magazine.

"She was close to death twice," he said. "We have been working a lot to get her to where she is right now."

Where she is now is apparently drug-free, says Mitch Winehouse, who, while no fan of her husband Blake Fielder-Civil, still found it hard to inform Amy of his divorce filing following photos of her frolicking on the beach with rugby player Josh Bowman.

"I had to call Amy before she heard about [the divorce] from someone else," Mitch Winehouse said. "She asked me, 'Daddy, why does he want to divorce me?' I said, 'You know I don't like him, but I have to admit that your behavior with another man is not what marriage is all about.' "
