Washington, Aug 3 (ANI): Jailbird Blake Fielder-Civil is to be shifted to a prison outside of London amid fears for his safety.

Amy Winehouses hubby is currently serving a 27-month sentence in the British capital’’s Pentonville Prison after being convicted on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and perverting the course of justice.

The charges stem from a 2006 assault on a London pub landlord.

Blake, 26, who has been seeking counselling from support group, The Samaritans, will be transferred to a jail in Suffolk in the English countryside this weekend, after begging prison officials for the move because he felt suicidal, reports Contactmusic.

This comes just days after Fielder-Civil reportedly broke down in tears in his cell, screaming, “Why me?”, and tearing down photos of his famous wife.

Meanwhile, Winehouse is said to have begun househunting in the Suffolk area to be near her troubled spouse when he is transferred. (ANI)
