In an interview with PEOPLE, Janis Winehouse-Collins reflects on her daughter’s whirlwind life and also suggests that the star singer may have suffered from Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes physical and vocal tics.
Janis shared: “She could well have been almost Tourette’s, where she would just shout things out,” says Janis, 60. “We just do not know.”
Janis has written a new memoir titled Loving Amy: A Mother’s Story. It tells the tale of living with Amy before she fell victim to drugs and alcohol addiction.
