The family of Amy Winehouse has released a statement saying that the troubled “Rehab” singer, who died on July 23 at the age of 27, was not under the influence of drugs at the time of her death.

“Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death,” the statement reads. “Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death. The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October.”

Winehouse’s father Mitch has stated that his daugther had been clean from drugs for three years before she died. The family plans to launch a charity under Winehouse’s name to help those coping with addiction.

Tony Bennett will pay tribute to Winehouse at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday. His duet with Winehouse, “Body and Soul” from the upcoming Duets II, will be released as a charity single on September 14, which would have been the late singer’s 28th birthday.
