Amy Winehouse cost her record company £70,000 after failing to turn up for a video shoot.
The troubled singer was scheduled to record a promo for her new single 'Love Is A Losing Game' at London's Pinewood Studios on Tuesday (06.11.07) but didn't show because she was recovering from a heavy night of drinking.
A source said: "The crew waited from 8am until 11pm but she didn't show. Her management were running round trying to get hold of her, they even sent a car round to her place in Camden.
"When they finally spoke to her at around 7pm she said that she was still at home with her husband Blake Fielder-Civil."
Amy's selfish actions left most of the crew fuming and adamant that they would not work with the wayward star again.
The source added: "The crew were not impressed. The team have never known an artist fail to turn up without making some sort of excuse. She really let a lot of people down, it was not cool."
Amy's excuse for not going was because she was too "exhausted" after finishing her gruelling European tour.
Another source said: "The timing of the video shoot so soon after all her travelling around Europe wasn't the best."
Amy has a history of no shows.
In August, the 24-year-old star postponed her North America tour and called off several European dates to allow her time to recover after collapsing from a drugs overdose earlier that month.
In July, Amy upset fans when she was seen drinking hours after pulling out of a Liverpool show.
