TRAGIC AMY WINEHOUSE’S EX-HUBBY BLAKE ON HER LAST MESSAGE TO HIM
AMY Winehouse and her former husband had talked about a reunion just weeks before she died.
The Back To Black singer’s last words to Blake Fielder-Civil were: “You’re never going to lose me.”
Blake, 30, made the revelation in a yet-to-be broadcast TV interview with Jeremy Kyle.
He and Amy had a turbulent on-off relationship which ended in divorce in July 2009 on the grounds of her adultery.
But they stayed in touch, even while Blake served 32 months in jail for burglary and the possession of an imitation firearm.
He admitted having feelings for Amy, despite his relationship with Sarah Aspin, 34, mother of his son Jack, two.
Blake was sent to Leeds’ Armley prison in June 2011, a month before Amy died at 27.
The recovering junkie said they had several “emotional” heart-to-hearts on the phone and during one call they talked “about getting back together.” Blake said: “”e had one emotional phone call when we sort of said ‘Are we thinking about maybe getting back together at some point?’
“Her doctor had told her ‘You’’e never not going to be in love with Blake.’ “And Amy said ‘Yeah, I know’.”
Blake was still in jail when Amy died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011.
He also spoke of the day he was told she had died.
He said: “It was a weekend and I had a cell mate. I think there was boxing on and we were just talking about little things, making a cup of tea.
“There was a knock at the door and one of the officers said ‘Can you come with us.’
“I didn’t really think too much of it. I was taken down to the office and one of the senior officers asked me if I was still married to Amy.
“I said no and he went ‘Good.’ I think that was a nervous reaction on his part.
“”e said ‘This is never easy but Amy died earlier today’. For about two or three minutes I was probably a bit pathetic.
“I said ‘No, that’’ not true, it won’t be Amy it will be someone who looks like her. It’ll be a hoax.
People will be on Twitter saying she’s passed away but it’ll turn out to be a hoax.’
“So I made them show me about six or seven websites.
And each time they showed me the computer I found it harder and harder to take on.”
Blake said he broke down in tears.
“I couldn’t stop crying and then I had to go back in my cell,” he said.
“One of the officers said ‘That’s the worst I’ve ever felt in this job, having to put somebody back in their cell.’ My cell mate had watched it on the news. He was a big guy, about 18 stone and he was crying. I just sat down and read the letters she’d wrote to me over and over.”
After his release, Blake found a series of texts from Amy on his phone.
But he said reading them was difficult. “They were under her nickname I gave her, Gem. There were ones talking about being a godmother to Jack,” he said.
Within days of his release Blake went out drinking with a pal and took an overdose of nerve relaxant.
He suffered organ failure and spent three weeks in a coma in hospital.
He denied trying to kill himself, adding: “It was around the anniversary of Amy’s passing and people made assumptions.
“I wouldn’t do that. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
In an earlier interview with The Sun newspaper, Fielder-Civil admitted: “I was the one who brought drugs into the relationship.
“When the toxicology results came back I was relieved there were no drugs in her system.”
Fielder-Civil said of her drug habit: “It seems disrespectful to Amy to assume she was so impressionable she would take them without making the decision to do so herself. She was actually very strong and independent.”
He insisted it was not drugs but her boozing that was always the problem.
