Amy Winehouse has amassed a £10 million fortune.
The troubled singer has been included in this year's Sunday Times newspaper's young music rich list for the first time, largely thanks to the huge worldwide sales of her album 'Back to Black'.
Amy is in joint 10th place, along with British singers Craig David and Will Young.
George Harrison's son Dhani Harrison tops the list with a £160 million fortune, an inheritance he shares with his mother Olivia after the Beatle died in 2001.
Violinist Vanessa-Mae Nicholson was in second place, having earned £32 million, while Coldplay trio Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion were joint third with an estimated £30 million each.
At 31, Coldplay singer Chris Martin was too old to be included in the newspaper's young music rich list.
The highest new entry is model Karen Elson, in sixth place. She shares her £25 million fortune with her husband, White Stripes frontman Jack White.
The rest of the top 10 is made up by British singers Joss Stone, Katie Melua and Charlotte Church.
The full list will be published on Sunday (27.04.08) and is part of the annual Sunday Times Rich List.
