NME reports (via The Sun) that Allen said, "I've had nights out with Amy and know exactly what used to go on. It's so easy to get caught up in that madness … I've been strong enough to walk away." Even Allen's friends knew about her potentially wild ways, admitting that she actually received texts from friends when the news of Winehouse's death broke.
