As if this whole situation couldn’t be any more tragic.
Amy Winehouse‘s ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is currently on life support and in a medically-induced coma after overdosing on heroin a week after being released from prison, and according to his mother, Georgette, his relapse was brought on when he came across old text messages from the deceased singer, asking if she could be the godmother to his 15 month old son Jack.
“He had messages on his phone from Amy which he only got recently. He didn’t have the phone in prison and he picked up messages from her when he was released. She said she wanted to be Jack’s godmother. The grief for Amy started again. I fear he may have been trying to take his own life. If he pulls through it may be two months before he is discharged. The worrying thing is if he then goes back to his substance misuse. Next time he won’t make it, there is no doubt about that.”
Sadly, we’re more concerned about his surviving this whole ordeal.
Addiction truly is such a horrific, awful disease, and we imagine that the last thing Amy would want to see would be that it take the life of someone for whom she cared so deeply – especially with such a young child.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family, and loved ones.
Keep fighting, Blake.
