London: Troubled singer Amy Winehouse secretly got engaged to boyfriend Reg Traviss weeks before her mysterious death.

Traviss paid tribute to the singer, who had a long struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, saying he had lost "his dear love".

And it is being claimed that Traviss proposed to the Back To Black singer and they were secretly engaged.

Traviss, 35, presented the 27-year-old singer with a diamond ring and she accepted his proposal, a daily reported.

"Reg asked Amy and of course she said 'Yes'. She loved him. She wanted nothing more than to be his wife and to start a family with him. She wanted to get rid of her demons so badly," a source told the newspaper.

The couple were reportedly planning a wedding next year. Winehouse met Traviss just two months after finally splitting from her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

The cause of Winehouse's death will be known only after toxicology reports as the post-mortem was inconclusive.
The Grammy award-winner was found dead by her security guard on July 23.
