Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, went on Good Morning Britain to talk on what would have been Amy’s 40th birthday. When asked if he would have done anything different in their relationship, Blake answered, “almost everything differently”.
“I have carried that burden for 10 years. I am the only person who has held accountability and said, yes I have made some huge mistakes. I was a 20-something-year-old drug addict and I had no idea how to make myself clean, let alone somebody else.”
Amy and Blake were married from 2007 to 2009. She died in 2011 at the age of twenty-seven, of alcohol poisoning.
“I had no idea how to make myself clean, let alone someone else. There were vested interests in Amy carrying on performing too. The fragility is what people connected with in the albums.”
