According to the Associated Press, Winehouse had $6.7 million worth of assets when she died in July 2011 at age 27. After taxes and debts, the singer’s parents will receive $4.66 million. Winehouse did not leave a will.

Her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil will not receive any money.

In the wake of Winehouse’s sudden death from alcohol poisoning, Mitch Winehouse established a foundation in his daughter’s name. Earlier this month, the Amy Winehouse Foundation set up a scholarship so a child may attend the London theater school where Winehouse studied voice when she was young.

The foundation also gave about $47,630 to a rehabilitation charity in February.
