Amy Winehouse’s ex husband gives rare interview about star’s death

Amy Winehouse gave the world some incredible hits.

Back to Black was a mix of lyrical genius, raw emotion and jazzy pop.

Sadly, the singer lost her life in 2011 to alcohol poisoning at just 27-years-old.

Overshadowing her tragic and untimely death were articles surrounding her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil and their 'drug-filled' marriage.

At that time, many people criticised Blake for "cashing-in" on Amy's death by selling stories, but he soon faded from the public eye.

That's why we were surprised to see him on Good Morning Britain.

The 36-year-old defended himself about the stories he sold in 2011 and their drug-use.

Blake said that their dependency on the substances had been exaggerated by the press.

"The drug thing has been attributed to me for years. Me and Amy only used drugs together maybe six months of our marriage. I did heroin maybe four or five times."

He also added that he felt he was the only one who has owned up in contributing to the star's death.

“I feel I am the only person who has ever taken responsibility. I feel that there has been a certain sort of shift in the blame to other parties, but I feel that I always took responsibility before that. Amy didn’t do anything Amy didn’t want to do," he said.

Blake continued to defend his actions when Piers Morgan suggested that he had made money from Amy's death by selling the stories about their marriage.

“The story that I sold was more about me taking responsibility for Amy’s situation at the time," he explained.

“To call it cashing in is a bit misleading. I would have done it without any payment. The reasons that I ended up taking money was that I had been in a situation or through my own sort of doing, where I found it really hard to get a job for a long time. I couldn't really earn money any other way,” he added.

Blake has moved on and is in a relationship, and has two children.

Although he admits that he still harbours feelings for the singer.

We don't really know how we feel about this one but we certainly do miss Amy.
