Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil were married for only two years, but many people consider that he was responsible for the late singer’s downfall. His life has been a rollercoaster.


Winehouse and Fielder-Civil, who worked as a video production assistant, began their rocky, on-and-off relationship after meeting in 2005. At the time, Winehouse was already a rising star.

The former couple tied the knot in Miami on May 18, 2007, but getting married didn’t make their romance any easier. In the months following their ceremony, they were frequently spotted partying in London in poor shape.

In August, only three months after walking down the aisle, they reportedly got into a heated argument at the Sanderson Hotel in London. It was so bad that police were called to investigate, but the singer didn’t press charges.

Hours later, they were seen together again. Amy Winehouse had bandages on her arms, bruises on her neck, and ruined makeup, while Blake Fielder-Civil had scratches on his face and neck.


Things got more complicated in 2008 when he allegedly attacked a pub landlord and was convicted of perverting the course of justice and grievous bodily harm with intent – a severe form of battery.

Fielder-Civil was sentenced to 27 months behind bars, which negatively affected his marriage. One thing is clear, though: nobody could’ve guessed how their relationship would’ve ended.



In early 2009, Winehouse went to St. Lucia, a Caribbean island, and took a break from everything, including drugs. She then said she wouldn’t let Fielder-Civil divorce her as he was her “male version.”

However, Blake Fielder-Civil and Sarah Aspin, his ex-girlfriend, got back together later that year, ultimately ending his and Winehouse’s marriage.


On July 23, 2011, the “Back to Black” singer died of accidental alcohol poisoning. Amy Winehouse’s husband shared some details about their relationship after her untimely passing.

Fielder-Civil admitted he regretted introducing his wife to heroin, adding that four “wild” months of their relationship led them to extensive drug use.

[Fielder-Civil] claimed Amy Winehouse tried to take her own life eight weeks before her passing.



Ever since divorcing Winehouse, Fielder-Civil’s life has been a rollercoaster. He shares two kids with Sarah Aspin, but he almost died in the summer of 2012.

Fielder-Civil drank so much alcohol (he reportedly used heroin, too) that Aspin found him choking in bed. He was immediately taken to a hospital with multiple organ failure.

Aspin confessed he was put in a coma to help him recover and that doctors didn’t know the prognosis. Fortunately, he woke up just a few days after Aspin learned she was pregnant with their second kid.


During the last few years, Blake Fielder-Civil has mostly lived a low-key life. In 2016, though, he claimed Amy Winehouse tried to take her own life eight weeks before her passing.

He said Winehouse was hurt after he didn’t pick up the phone on what would have been their fourth wedding anniversary. He didn’t do it because Aspin was in labor.


In 2018, Winehouse’s ex-husband called out her family for developing a hologram tour, even labeling it a “moneymaking gimmick.” He claimed Winehouse’s family and friends were trying to “cash in” on her legacy with the tour, mainly because people would only see “old footage.”

He complained that the shows wouldn’t have a human element, adding that the hologram wouldn’t be different from watching a video of the late singer or listening to her songs.


It is unclear how Blake Fielder-Civil is doing now. In 2018, he was living in a crime-ridden area of Leeds, where over 120 crimes took place that year. His neighbors weren’t too thrilled about having him around as one even said he “should be locked up.”

Fielder-Civil allegedly began living in Leeds in 2013 after serving some time in jail for burglary and firearm possession. Some of Amy Winehouse’s fans would love to see him back on his feet.
