Janis Winehouse suffers from multiple sclerosis

Amy Winehouse’s mum would like to help her troubled daughter more but can’t because of her own fragile health.

Janis Winehouse suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS), a disabling neurological condition which affects the central nervous system.

Constantly trying to save 24-year-old Amy from herself is just too much.

‘I just can’t do all that running around to wherever there’s been a problem,’ she tells The Sun.

So Janis, 52, says she relies on ex-husband Mitch, 57, to rush to their daughter’s side at times of crisis.

‘He does a great job on behalf of both of us,’ she says.
