The auction of handwritten lyrics to one of Amy Winehouse's most famous songs has been halted by the late singer's family. The sale of the note featuring the words of Love is a Losing Game and a Valentine's card from Winehouse to then-husband Blake Fielder-Civil were expected to fetch $11,200 (£7,000) when they went under the hammer at Bonhams auction house in London. Now, however, her family members have stepped in to pull the items from sale due to a dispute over ownership. The seller is reportedly a friend of Winehouse's who was gifted the lyrics before the release of her smash hit album Back to Black in 2006.
