She was once said to be worth as much as £15 million (AU$23 million), but when Amy Winehouse died she had just a fraction of that fortune left in the bank.

The 27-year-old, who was found dead in her London home in July, has left behind just over £2 million (AU $3 million) leaving many people wondering what happened to the rest of her fortune.

In 2008, soon after she found fame, Amy made the Sunday Times' Rich List with earnings of £10 million, but by the following year her assets had dwindled to half that.

According to a story in the Sunday Mirror in 2009, the troubled muso gave £15 million to her father to look after.

But according to the Daily Mail, all that was left of Amy's fortune when she died was £2,004,963 (AU $3,068,406).

Could she have really squandered that much on partying?
