Amy Winehouse could be left permanently scarred if she doesn't quit drugs.
The troubled singer - who has been pictured in recent weeks with scabs all over her face initially thought to be caused by the skin infection impetigo - has been warned by doctors if she doesn't get clean there will be irreversible damage caused to her skin.
As she was allegedly taking cocaine at a party at her Camden home, in London, Amy was reportedly overheard saying: "I've been told I'll lose my looks over this - but I can't give it up! I'm told my scars might never heal. My dermatologist says it's a result of the drugs and it could spread to other parts of my body if I don't quit."
The 'Back to Black' star is terrified her husband Blake Fielder-Civil - who is currently on remand at London's Pentonville Prison awaiting trial on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice - will no longer find her attractive if she is left covered in scars.
She said: "What will I do if I lose my looks? Blake will never love me like that."
As well as allegedly taking cocaine, Amy - who entered rehab in January to seek help for drug addiction - was seen drinking heavily throughout the evening.
