London (CNN) - Amy Winehouse took a spill over the weekend, sending her to a London clinic for medical treatment, her publicist said Tuesday.
"Amy tripped and fell at home," spokeswoman Tracey Miller said. "She bruised her ribs and also suffered a cut above her eye."
The 26-year-old singer "is recovering and expected to be fine," she said.
The accident comes as Winehouse is working to get her life and music career back on track. Winehouse - famous for her retro, soulful R&B sound - is working on a third album.
She gained fame with a string of hits including "Rehab," "Back to Black" and "Tears Dry on Their Own."
Winehouse has reportedly been seeing ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil in recent weeks, despite their divorce last year. People.com reported last week they celebrated his 28th birthday together at a London bar.
New at 11> Amy Winehouse takes a drink of water.. More to come... lol. Everyone has accidents. Why is this news worthy? Oh and why are people talking about her music. It was an article about her falling not how her music is..
She just needs an adult sized hamster cage to roll around .
I fear to think what her voice sounds like now after 6+ years of constant crack abuse.
She didn't have Whitney's soprano to ruin, but I'm pretty sure she won't be belting out "Tears Dry on their own" and hitting the notes again.
26? No freaking way...this thing is going on 50 easy.
Amy, you have a great voice. Come back... and stay away from Blake!
Amy Winehouse has talent, her voice is different and she could go a long way. Give up the narcotics and the booze Amy, and then its smooth sailing. Stop hurting yourself to get in the news. Do something positive to make everyone aware that you are still out there. Take care chunky.
Most of all care about your self. Kiddo
The poor girl needs to find something about herself that she likes. Her slow suicide mission has been going on for so long, and stints at rehab won't do it.
Clearly, hooking up with drug addled ex husband gives her a sense of being needed, being any good, but unfortunately it comes at a cost of acquiring a serious drug habit.
And round and round we go...
Too bad we're not reading about her funeral. What a waste of oxygen.
Don't look now, but I think there is something growing on her head...
She looks good with a tan.

Who cares??? A lot of Junkies fall everday, everywhere in the world.
I'll say it like this to all of you, slagging on her, placing judgements on her, or on ANY artist for that l:
IF YOU CAN DO BETTER, than go ahead.
I'm in the entertainment business. a veteran, for 20 years. I've seen it all, and I know what fame can do.
And If you cannot do better, then consider that you are only spreading your negative words, nothing more than that. as Mark C says.
so choose silence, it's better for all of us.
Some of the hateful comments on here show their authors for the empty, worthless excuses for human beings that they are.
Oh, no – a musician known for excessive and tasteless behavior – how shocking. She is positively mainstream. The more she screws up the more people will pay attention. That's why Lady Gaga is starting to lose traction: she doesn't have any scandals going on. Britney Spears shaved her head and flashed her poot and got more PR than if she had actually been doing anything musically. It's part of the job.
Still alive? Good for her.
The woman has got some pipes! I love to hear her work them. I hope she is ok and does sober up. I am old enough to have listened to Areatha and other R&B singers and Amy Winehouse could be up there with the best.
Amy is very talented, but she decided to add another extra talent of being d most talentd drug addict. Come back girl and sing 'Rehab Vol.2'
This woman is so talented! It's a shame she doesn't make better choices in her life.
HAHA! finally! I WIN!
Amy winehouse will always be an addict with the nest on her head still singing her blues...even though a lot of people don't like her, she will always be remembered and her songs will become classics
wow the only comment that got posted was the angry one at cnn...
What a trainwreck!! I'd love to take the hedgeclippers to that hair. I guess it does match the rest of her abused body though. I don't care for any of her music. Just saying.
CNN wont let me post one stinking sentence on anything this is riddiculous and my comments aren't even inappropriate.
Why is it celebrities fall down a lot?
Who cares if she OD,s as long as she gets out a few more tunes . Look at Jimmy Hendrix and Joplin, the drugs made them immortal . Do another line Amy
You need the drugs and booze for your muse, Blake will help with that
I think she has talent, I think she has potential, I think she has a problem....
Here's the best singer/composer ever!
oh sure – tripped and fell AND she's back with Blake. Sure sounds like coincidence to me – some bimbo's never get it.
Lay off the drugas...
Yeah SURE she took a tumble...against her husband's fist!
Wow what a bunch of salty people you all are!!!!!
All of them drug/alcohol dependant at one point. Still doesn't dimish their genius. Miss Winehouse does indeed have true talent and a phenomenal voice, but the chemical dependency will cut her short.
Man, this story is boring. I'm going back to watch the boobquake video...
Is CNN her publicist? I see her name in the news at least twice a month.
Like most bridges, most blogs have their trolls. If you address comments directly back to them it's a little like dancing with a pig...if you know that old saying.
Wow some of you are extremely judgmental and downright mean... flaws and all Amy is an extremely talented woman her voice and writing skills are just unheard of for a woman of her young age
I hope she can truly get her life on track b/c she has so much to offer
I dont like anything about her, she is just a waste of everything, i hope she tops herself and no one goes to her funeral, also, her music sucks
Are reporters now reduced to reporting trivial information about celebrities?? For example when someone trips and falls in their own home? Tomorrow we might read about how Michael Douglas' son is being treated for sore wrists because of the handcuffs. Must be a slow news day. Until she gets her act together, AW is not much of a news story anyway.
She is 26 years old!! And message to cjar...if she is a dirtbag, why are you reading and writing about her. Give the girl a chance!!!
She hit da flo'!
hang in there Amy, luv ya!
I love me some Amy! I do think there might be something to the bird thing but I just don't care! Because I love me some birds too!
mimz; it 's not about her voice silly, she has a style,and my dear, she can write a great song, if you bothered to listen instead of simply judging her .
Andy kitty katz, since when are rockstars held up to be role models...give her head a shake.
only when she finds God........right....like Jimmy Swaggart.
Leave her alone. She is most talented musician of the last 25 years. Just get the Back to Black bonus disc and listen people. And stop being so mean.
I believe that authorities MUST to send this girl to jail ( like Paris Hilton) for her learn how to behave. She is the typical Wh*t* Tr*sh with fame and money that doesn't know how to deal with her status.
It wouldn't surprise me if the next news headline about Winehouse is "Winehouse found dead from OD."
She probably slipped on a banana peel, I'm sure she wasn't wasted or anything, ya, I'm sure it was a banana peel...
Cant this thing just go away,OH i bet she will take care of that on her own.
Amy is an awesome singer and has turned in some great performances. I really hope she gets herself together before, as mimz said, she turns into Whitney, or God forbid dies. It took Whitney a lot of years to wreck her voice, so maybe Amy can save herself from that. My feeling is that staying clear of Blaaake and maybe making so 12-step meetings might be a good start, but that's just me.
Mimz, you're an idiot.
AMY GET YOURSELF TOGETHER AND COME BACK... WE MISS YOU!!!! :(
She is going to be a leader in the 2011 Death Pool. Climbing up nicely on the charts since she rekindled her romance with the walking meth lab.
She may be a moron in her personal life, but Winehouse is the best R+B singer of this generation. Oh yeah, and nice those of you wishing her ill. Kharma is comin for ya....
Bruised ribs and a cut above the eye? Sounds like a physical altercation. Sad thing is, she's so whacked out she probably wouldn't remember if it was. Get help, girl.
they're trying to send her to rehab and she needs to say Yes Yes Yes
The new boobs must be throwing her off balance- or maybe I should say, more off-balance.
I'm with JimBob. Several species of birds, even?
"Amy Winehouse takes a tumble" ? Now, there's a surprise. Not.
I don't like her depressing music and I'm not one of her fans. She's a terrible role model. As long as she's hanging out and seeing her druggie ex, there's no hope for her. She'll be back drunk and drugged before you know it. It's only a matter of time before she meets the same fate as so many other "stars" who overdosed. She obviously has no self-esteem or self-respect.
Only if and when she finds God and allows HIM to work in her life, will there is hope for her.
I'm pretty sure there are some birds nesting in her hair.
Ya gotta do SOMETHING to stay in the news if you're not knockin' out "Product."
Amy i hope u get better soon i love ur song rehab I want to meet u sometime
Total waste of space and oxygen, the sooner she tops herself, as she surely will, the better
And take that pus sucking scuzz bucket ex with you Amy, and Pete Doherty, talentless little punk
Please people...stop being so judgemental!
Yes, she's had her addictions but maybe just maybe she's cleaning up her life and trying to put the addiction behind her. Where's the love folks...where's the love?
why are we even talking about this dirtbag. her music sucks anyway.
She really does have a lot of talent, I'd just hate to see her end up like her idol, Billie Holliday.
Walk around covered in bubble wrap, Amy. Hope you get well soon.
Red Leader checking in....
What is this like the 87th time shes been to some form of Hospital I'm sure she was drunk and thats why she tripped.
She's had her 15 minutes of fame. Pretty soon drugs will do to her what they did to Whitney Houston's voice.
Stay away from Blake. Stay away from Blake. Stay away...............
