Winehouse’s hubby goes back to jail

Amy WinehouseLondon, Dec 3 (IANS) Troubled singer Amy Winehouse’s husband Blake Fielder-Civil is going back to jail after failing a drugs test. According to, Fielder-Civil, 26, dashed to his wife’s hospital bedside last night from rehab after being told the news. He could now be in jail until early 2010 after breaking the early release terms of his 27-month sentence.

In July, Fielder-Civil was jailed for assault and trial-fixing.

“Blake did a runner. He turned up in hospital and hell broke loose - everyone was totally shocked. He was asking Amy to forgive him. As he was going back inside anyway he felt he didn’t have much to lose,” a source said.

Fielder-Civil, who had been at Live Works rehab in Woking, Surrey, planned to hand himself in to cops after an evening with her.

“If he had stayed in prison last month rather than taking the rehab option he was set to be released at the end of this month. He’s blown it,” said another source.

Close friends of Winehouse, 25, feel that having Fielder-Civil locked up was good for her.

She has not visited Fielder-Civil since he went into rehab and refused to pay the 30,000 pound bill until he persuaded her to. Then last week she was rushed to hospital after a row with him on the phone sent her on a booze and drug bender.

Lawyers visited her to discuss divorce, but pals say Fielder-Civil threatened to harm himself if she left him.

“She had finally started stepping up divorce proceedings again, but he started phoning again and getting inside her mind. Now he is out of the picture again and she can concentrate on getting her life on track,” a close friend of Winehouse said.
