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.



Just two days after the long-awaited Amy Winehouse biopic premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, the late singer's ex-husband has spoken out about his relationship with the star.

Amy married Blake Fielder-Civil in 2007, and the pair divorced two years later. However Blake now alleges that his ex-wife never wanted a divorce, and that her signature on the divorce papers was "clearly" faked.

"There was a manic insistence from her family and friends to sign the divorce papers," Blake told The Sun.

"[Amy and I] spoke on the phone and she didn’t want the divorce. A week later the papers were there in front of me and it was clear it wasn’t her signature," he added.

Blake says he didn't speak up about his suspicions until now as he knew Amy's family wanted her to go ahead with the divorce no matter what. "I was so eager to get it over with and prove I wasn’t after her money, as her family kept saying, so I signed it," he explained.

Former drug addict Blake says he believes it was "months" before the Back To Black singer even knew the pair were officially divorced. Amy died in 2011 from accidental alcohol poisoning, aged just 27.

Blake has openly admitted that he was the one who introduced Amy to crack cocaine and heroin, leading to a hard drug habit she constantly struggled to kick.

Amy's family have already slated film director Asif Kapadia for his "misleading" portrayal of Amy's life in the new biopic, though the director said he worked hard to ensure the film was objective.

Speaking about the film, Blake said, "The only one who should come out well is Amy. We are all to blame because at the end of the day, a beautiful, rich, successful young woman has passed away."
