Amy Winehouse is the "mother hen" of her social circle.
Reality TV star Aisleyne Horgan Wallace has been friends with the 'Rehab' star for 18 months and insists she's nothing like her party-girl public persona.
Aisleyne said: "She is the mummy in our friendship group. She's really like a mother hen and likes to look after everyone. I know that's not how she comes across in the press, but everyone who knows her, or has ever met her, says the same about how wonderful she is.
"Although she's had problems with her addiction to drink and drugs, she's such an amazing, good person with a kind heart. She's a great laugh and always fun on a night out, but she's also a fantastic listener."
Amy's father Mitch recently revealed he is terrified her alcohol addiction will kill her.
Mitch told documentary maker Daphne Barak: "After she almost died twice from drug related problems, to see her walking, smiling - she has progressed so much.
"But now, if it's alcohol instead of hard drugs - I don't think I can go through that again. I've decided to distance myself, and whatever happens, happens. It's her life. It's her career. It's her decision."
