Amy Winehouse’s death remains a mystery 

Although Monday autopsy results were inconclusive as to a cause of death, and police sources have said there were no drugs or paraphernalia found near Amy Winehouse’s body, that hasn’t stopped speculation she was felled by addiction.

The singer, who on Saturday tragically became a member of the “27 club” — talents who flamed out at that age — was reportedly found in bed by a bodyguard around 4 p.m. Allegedly, based on the condition of her body, it’s believed she might have been dead for about four hours prior to that.

Devastated father Mitch is “acutely aware that it could be drugs that killed Amy, or that they may have triggered a pre-existing condition,” a source told the U.K.’s Mirror.

“Although she didn’t appear to be using any more, her drinking [had] got progressively worse,” a friend told the paper. “But over the last few days her behavior [had] become very erratic. They are contemplating the scenario that hard drugs could be involved.”

However, a source told the Sun that Amy’s family “staunchly believe it had nothing at all to do with recent drug binges. In the end it was her booze addiction that killed her. She’d had a number of seizures in the past six months due to the amount she was drinking. She was putting so much away towards the end, her heart just couldn’t take it.”

Amy’s funeral was held Tuesday; her body was then cremated. Results of further toxicology tests are anticipated in two to four weeks.

Mrs. Theroux?

Has the former Mrs. Brad Pitt finally met a man who’s marriage material? Even though Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux only recently started dating, “they’re kind of pre-engaged,” a Jen insider told OK! magazine. “We keep saying, ‘What’s with the rings? It’s only been a few weeks!’ But she says it feels right.”

“She has a huge grin 24/7,” a source said. “Her eyes have that extra sparkle.”

“Her relationship with Justin is very physical,” the source said. “They’re extremely touchy-feely, and apparently there are fireworks in the bedroom.”

Well, that’s a good enough reason to make a lifetime commitment after a few months, right?

Hard Partying?

Lindsay Lohan’s camp is denying that she has fallen off the wagon. It must be Wednesday!

A source told Radar Online that at a birthday party Saturday night, the troubled starlet “could barely stand. She was trying to stabilize herself on the chairs. Then she made it over to the curtains and hung on them.”

Alleging that LiLo indulged in a martini and did vodka shots, the source said, “She eventually got outside, and when she got to her Escalade she just collapsed into it.”

But the “Mean Girls” star fired back to TMZ in a statement: “Reports of me being intoxicated and not even able to stand are nothing but absurd.”

She claimed she wasn’t drinking alcohol at the event.

“Lindsay walked out of the party fine and she never once couldn’t stand up by herself,” a friend said, backing her up. “It’s strange how someone can come up with such detailed lies.”

Though a judge instructed her to pick up the pace on fulfilling her community-service obligations, the New York Post reported that Lindsay is planning a getaway to St. Tropez, and party planners are wary of inviting her to bashes where alcohol might be a temptation. This worries us.
