LONDON - Amy Winehouse has won a court order banning the paparazzi from pursuing her outside her London home, a source close to the singer's management team said Saturday.
The singer sought the order to ban photographers if they follow her or approach her within 100 meters of her home, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not directly involved in the case.
Winehouse posted the anti-harassment injunction outside her home.

Girl's father does not want Madonna to adopt her
NEW YORK - The father of a girl from Malawi whom Madonna hopes to adopt said he's capable of taking care of his daughter.
James Kambewa is believed to be the biological father of Chifundo 'Mercy' James. He told CBS News in an interview to be broadcast Monday on 'The Early Show' that he does not want the pop star to adopt the 4-year-old.
Kambewa also said he had never met his daughter and has only seen her picture in newspapers and on television.
Madonna's spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, did not immediately return a call for comment.
Madonna's appeal of a court ruling denying her request to adopt the girl is to be heard Monday in Malawi. The singer has already adopted a son, David, from Malawi.
