Amy Winehouse’s ‘Inconsolable’ Ex-Husband Doesn’t Care He Was Left Out of Her Will
Amy Winehouse's ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is distraught over her death and has apparently been left inconsolable, especially since he was not allowed a temporary release from jail to attend her funeral services. He is serving a three-year sentence for burglary and was actually imprisoned for much of his marriage to the late 'Rehab' singer; he spent seven months in the clink for "perverting the course of justice" while married to her.
Fielder-Civil's girlfriend and baby mama Sarah Aspin told The Sun that when she visited her boyfriend after Winehouse's death, he said, "I'm beyond inconsolable … My tears won't dry. I will never ever again feel the love I felt for her. Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love. I can't believe she's dead."
Winehouse fans will recognize her ex's paraphrasing of some of her lyrics in his statement, regarding tears that will not dry. It has to be hard for Aspin to hear her child's father speak of Winehouse as the love of his life, but even she acknowledged that the couple's volatile, drug-laced relationship was powerful and destructive for both parties. The couple wed in 2007 and divorced a mere two years after the fact.
Aspin also told The Sun that Fielder-Civil is "devastated and shattered. She said, "He just can't take it in that she's dead and he'll never see her again. Blake rang me on Saturday after the prison authorities told him she'd died. I just couldn't console him. He was in total shock.
"Blake is the father of our son. But I saw him and Amy together and I know they were really in love and they were soul mates," she continued. "She always loved him and he always loved her — but it was just never going to work. Basically they couldn't live with each other and they could not live without each other. It is hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand his feelings."
Much of 'Back to Black' was written about the singer's rocky romance with Fielder-Civil.
Adding further insult to injury, The Daily Mail has reported that Winehouse left her husband, who is rumored to have introduced her to lots of hardcore drugs that became her downfall, out of her will. Winehouse, who was cremated after a memorial service, was reportedly worth 10 million in British pounds and sources say she took care to sort out her finances and remove him from her will when they split.
Even Fielder-Civil's mother Georgette confirmed her son's devastation over Winehouse's death and eschewed reports that he is mad about being removed from the will, saying, "He's devastated and profiting from Amy's death would be the last thing on his mind."
