Speaking to The Sun, he said Winehouse's fans should remember her for "her talent, her generosity and the love she showed us all," and "not just her troubles with addiction."

Following Winehouse's death, her parents created the Amy Winehouse Foundation 2011, which focuses on educating youth on addition.

They also set up Amy's Place, a facility that houses 16 women to help them adapt to life after seeking rehabilitation.

When addressing the money that Winehouse's music is still bringing in, Mitch said, "Amy’s mum Janis and I manage her estate, and yes of course her music still makes a lot of money, what she did has set her whole family up."

"The thing is, though, and I can’t say this clearly enough, I would give back every penny just to have my daughter back," he continued.

"Ten years after her death, she is still looking after her loved ones — her family and many of her friends have been supported by her — and that’s typical of her. She was generous in life and in many ways she still is now."
