After a disastrous start, Amy Winehouse has canceled her 12-city European comeback tour.

Released from rehab weeks before the tour's kickoff, Winehouse was booed off stage during an appearance in Serbia on Saturday for flubbing lyrics, yelling at her band and leaving long gaps of silence during numbers.

The resulting scandal forced her management to cancel dates in Istanbul and Athens — and now the whole dang show is off the table.

"Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen," spokesman Chris Goodman said in a statement that called off the remainder of the tour.

While reps didn't comment on drugs or alcohol possibly affecting the Serbian gig and its aftermath, CNN noted, they said Winehouse agrees she's not up to snuff.

"Despite feeling sure that she wanted to fulfill these commitments, she has agreed with management that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home," said Tracey Miller, another Winehouse rep.
