Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil has filed for divorce, citing her adultery
Amy Winehouse's husband has filed for divorce.
Blake Fielder-Civil - who is currently serving a jail term for grievous bodily harm and perverting the course of justice - has reportedly instructed lawyer Henri Brandman to begin proceedings on the grounds of Amy's alleged adultery after he became infuriated over pictures of her cavorting on holiday in St. Lucia with actor Josh Bowman.
According to the MailOnline website, Blake is expected to ask for half of the singer's estimated £10 million fortune in a settlement.
Amy was rumoured to have taken steps to protect her earnings last November amid concerns from her representatives.
The 'Rehab' singer's father Mitch is believed to have had a secret meeting with legal experts to find a way to keep her estimated assets safe if the couple divorced.
A source close to the singer said discussions were "productive", adding: "There was panic in her team that Blake could get access to Amy's money.
"This cannot be allowed to happen. Mitch is leading the way but Amy is fully aware of what is happening."
News of the divorce proceedings comes as Amy admitted she had given up drugs because of her relationship with Josh - and revealed she had "forgotten I'm even married" to Blake.
She explained: "I've finally escaped from hell. I'm in love again and I don't need drugs. Look at me, I'm glowing."
