Winehouse 'victim' reveals career fears

A woman who claims that she was punched by Amy Winehouse has admitted that she fears for her career and reputation after the star was cleared of the charge.

Winehouse was yesterday found not guilty of assaulting burlesque dancer Sherene Flash following a trial at the City Of Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The troubled singer had earlier claimed that she merely pushed Flash as she felt intimidated by her.

Explaining his decision to dismiss the case, District Judge Timothy Workman said: "I cannot be sure that this was not an accident."

Speaking to The Mirror after the trial's outcome was announced, Flash revealed: "I am really upset at the verdict but it was something I was expecting. She seems to get away with it all the time.

"I had to think long and hard before going ahead with this case because I am a professional dancer who works on music videos. Now I will be labelled a troublemaker. This could really affect my career but I did what I did because it was the truth."

A spokesperson for Winehouse said yesterday: "She has always maintained her innocence and is very happy to move on with her life and put the episode behind her."
