Amy Winehouse was recently arrested by police investigating an alleged bribery plot for which her husband is already being held in custody.
She’s believed to have been questioned about husband Blake Fielder-Civil’s alleged attempt to halt a trial by offering a barman £200,000 to drop grievous bodily harm charges against him.
Winehouse turned herself in to a police station in London December 18. A Scotland Yard spokeswoman later confirmed that a 24-year-old woman has been released on police bail pending further enquiries, and that she’s been told to return to an east London police station in March.
According to the Daily Mail, which gave the story front page coverage, psychiatrists were called in to calm a "screaming and sobbing" Winehouse before she was arrested.
Fielder-Civil and three other men were charged last month with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
He and Michael Brown are accused of assaulting James King, the landlord of Macbeths pub in Hoxton, east London, on June 20 last year.
It’s also alleged they later conspired to pervert the course of justice by offering King a reported £200,000 to withdraw his allegation and flee to Spain until the case collapsed.
Two other men also facing the same charge are Anthony Kelly, 25, and James King, 36.
All four have been remanded in custody until January 18 for a plea and directions hearing with a trial date penciled in for June.
Police have apparently turned their attentions to Winehouse and, according to The Times, officers have confiscated her mobile phone records, bank details and computer software.
Last week, police reportedly visited the singer’s accountants, the London-based firm Smallfield Cody, in an attempt to track her financial dealings.
Winehouse canceled her remaining UK tour dates following her husband’s arrest in November.
