Blake Fielder-Civil’s “devastated and shattered” by the death of his ex-wife Amy Winehouse, according to his current love, Sarah Aspin.
“Blake rang me on Saturday after the prison authorities told him she’d died,” Aspin told The Sun. “I just couldn’t console him. He was in total shock.”
Fielder-Civil — who’s serving a 32-month sentence at Leeds’ Armley Jail in connection with his June conviction for burglary and firearm possession — relayed his grief to Aspin, who went on the record with paper.
Winehouse and Fielder-Civil “couldn’t live with each other, and they couldn’t live without each other,” Aspin said. “It’s hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand his feelings.”
Friends of the late singer speculated Winehouse might have intentionally overdosed, the Daily Mirror reported, after a quarrel with her boyfriend Reg Traviss when he found out she’d recently talked to Fielder-Civil.
“Reg found out Amy and Blake had been chatting and got upset,” a source told The Daily Mirror. “The pair had a fight and Reg walked out. She had been drinking more and more whiskey … and then basically decided to play Russian roulette with her life.
“She was upstairs injecting heroin on a self-destruct mission [Friday],” the source said. “The fear is she deliberately took more than usual because she was past the point of caring whether she lived or died.”
The Rehab singer was found dead at her London home by pal Tyler James Saturday afternoon at 27, marking the end of her long battle with drugs and alcohol. She’d entered rehabilitation facilities on multiple occasions to battle her demons, as recently as this past May.
Police Sunday tabbed her death “unexplained,” adding that speculation about a drug overdose was “inappropriate.” Law enforcement sources told the Daily Telegraph that no drugs were found at Amy’s house upon inspection.
Her autopsy is slated for Monday afternoon, authorities said.
