Tony Azzopardi, who is being interviewed by London police today, admits he helped the late singer buy the hard drugs in the early morning of July 23rd, the day she was found dead in her London home.



The 56-year-old, who she knew through her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, claimed he wanted her family to ''know the truth''.



Azzopardi told the Daily Mirror he met the singer in a black cab near The Eagle pub around 11:30pm on July 22..



Azzopardi says Winehouse asked him to help her buy drugs and they rode together in the taxi to West Hampstead, where he made a call to a local dealer.
