Two charged with giving Amy Winehouse drugs

Associated Press - June 12, 2008 6:23 AM ET

LONDON (AP) - Police have charged a man and a woman in London with supplying drugs to Amy Winehouse.

The charges stem from a video that appears to show the singer smoking crack cocaine.

London police say John Blagrove and Cara Burton have been charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine and the drug known as ecstasy.

The suspects were released on bail today, with court appearances set for July 1st.

Police began an investigation after pictures from the footage were published in The Sun newspaper last January. Detectives say Winehouse will not be charged in the case.

The singer has seen her rise to fame overshadowed by media attention to her turbulent private life. She is best known for her breakthrough hit "Rehab."
