Amy Winehouse has been barred from the US because of her arrest earlier this month, revealed her dad Mitch.
The troubled singer and her husband Blake Fiedler-Civil were fined £350 after being found in possession of cannabis when they were in Norway earlier this month, and Amy's father is worried it will ruin his daughter's upcoming American tour.
He said: "Amy and Blake were told to sign a release form by Norwegian police - but it was actually a confession. She can't get into the US now because of that, even though it wasn't her cannabis anyway."
Taxi-driver Mitch also said 24-year-old Amy is still suffering from the eating disorder bulimia - the condition that saw her weight plummet from a curvy size 14 to a size 6.
He told Britain's 'This Morning' TV show: "The other problem is the bulimia which is still apparent, although she's put on about a 14lbs in weight but it's still affecting her health.
"She's eating, although the eating disorder hasn't been fully addressed. If you look at the photographs of her in August and see her now you will see a marked change for the better. But it's a change for the better, it isn't a cure."
Amy previously admitted she doesn't even notice when she is losing weight.
She said: "The papers and my friend always go on about how I lost weight, but I didn't even notice myself losing it."
