As Amy Winehouse remains hospitalized, the embattled singer's condition may have taken a turn for the worse, as it's being reported that the 24-year-old has a case of tuberculosis.

According to London newspaper The Sun, sources from the London hospital say, doctors now believe Winehouse has tuberculosis and are performing more test to be certain.

The troubled crooner is suffering a chest infection and has been having server coughing fits and hurling up blood. Despite her refusal to be examined, doctors are trying to control her irregular heartbeat.

As SOHH previously reported, after being rushed to the hospital earlier this week following a fainting spell, which could have been caused by a massive overdose she suffered last year, Winehouse received a dire warning from her doctor to quit using drugs or eventually her addiction will cost the British soul singer her life.

Winehouse's battle with drugs and alcohol coupled with her massive weight loss, have doctors concern as well.
