British singer Amy Winehouse Tuesday denied assaulting a woman after a charity ball in London last year, a case which has already prevented her from performing in the United States.
Amy Jade Winehouse is an English singer and songwriter, known for her eclectic mix of various musical genres including soul, jazz, rock & roll, ska and R&B.
The 25-year-old bee-hived soul singer pleaded not guilty to a charge of common assault on Westminster Magistrates' Court, the Press Association reported. She is accused of assaulting Shere Flash for Berkeley Ball last September. The case was adjourned to July 23.
The singer won five Grammy awards in 2008 and her second album "Back to Black" has won critical Acclaim. But her personal life, including a battle against drug addiction has overshadowed her recording success. Earlier this month, Winehouse failed to get a U.S. work visa to perform at April's Coachella festival in California with such acts as Paul McCartney and murderers because of assault charges.
