Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Amy Winehouse would have turned 30 this week, and her father wants to make sure she's remembered the right way.

According to British paper Mail on Sunday, Mitch Winehouse has delayed the unveiling of a bronze sculpture of the late singer because he's unhappy with the final design.

The statue is scheduled to go up at Camden arts venue Roundhouse, where Amy passed away.

"He doesn't want anything to go up that he's not completely satisfied with. But obviously it's never going to look exactly like her," Amy's former boyfriend Reg Traviss said.

Amy died in 2011 at the age of 27. Her brother, Alex, has disputed the official claim that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning, saying that it was bulimia that killed her.
