Amy Winehouse Thursday was granted a divorce from Blake Fielder-Civil by a judge at the High Court in London.

The judge said the grant was "decree nisi," which means that it will be official in six weeks unless any evidence surfaces between now and then for him to change his mind; at the end of the six weeks, the judge will grant the retro-soul singer "decree absolute," meaning a complete termination of the union.

Fielder-Civil filed for divorce; his attorney, Henri Brandman, said "Amy's adultery" was the reason he decided to go through with it.

The couple had been married for two years.
