Amy Winehouse made unsuccessful attempts to reach out to Dr. Drew Pinsky in her final days, according to Janice Dickinson and the 'Celebrity Rehab' guru himself.

Unfortunately, it appears that Dr. Drew, who decided to step away from 'Celebrity Rehab' after this season due to his increasingly busy TV schedule, missed her calls.

"I found out also yesterday that, believe it or not, she was trying to contact me, which is weird. Janice Dickinson told me that," Dr. Drew told Kevin & Bean in a KROQ radio interview. "I remember getting these calls from Europe and I was like, 'What the hell is this?' and Janice goes, 'It was Amy.' We could have maybe gotten her over to someplace really good, but again, more sadness to that story."

"Amy tried to contact me a few weeks ago, and she wanted to be sober," Dickinson, a former 'Celebrity Rehab' patient, told The Insider at a Playboy mansion party on Wednesday.

Winehouse, a 3-time Grammy Award-winning singer, died at the age of 27 in her London apartment on July 23.

Initial reports suggested that she overdosed on a combination of ketamine, cocaine and ecstasy. Her parents have since released a statement saying they believe the cause of death of was alcohol withdrawal. Results of the toxicology reports are still pending.
