WINEHOUSE 'KILLED' PET HAMSTER
AMY WINEHOUSE once killed a pal's pet hamster after enjoying a boozy night out.
Peter Pepper - frontman of up-and-coming British band Palladium - claims the Rehab singer was the last person to handle the furry animal, named Georgie Porgie, before it was found dead. The incident happened after a group of friends returned to Pepper's girlfriend's home in north London in 2006 to continue the party.
He recalls, "I'd been to bed, but Amy had stayed up and was still going strong and had drunk the drinks cabinet dry.
"The next thing I know, (the hamster) bites me, runs off and Amy says she'll catch it... But I went to put a plaster on my finger and by the time I came back, Amy said she's put it to bed and it was sleeping. But just hours later the hamster was stone cold and hard. I don't know what she did to it..."
But Pepper admits he has been too terrified to confront Winehouse about the incident.
He adds, "I've never directly accused her of killing my hamster as I'm too scared. She can be quite fierce." (MT/WNTMI/TN)
