Amy Winehouse's imprisoned husband has reportedly demanded a £3 million divorce settlement.
Blake Fielder-Civil, who is currently in London's Pentonville Prison awaiting charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, believes he is entitled to £250,000 for every month he has been married to the troubled singer.
After Amy allegedly told him she wanted to divorce him and start a new life with new lover Alex Haines, Blake is said to have told friends: "She wouldn't even be alive if it wasn't for me."
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "At first Blake refused to believe Amy had dumped him, but his initial devastation has been replaced by rage. He said Amy owes everything to him - he inspired her music and says he saved her life.
"As a result of Amy his life will never be the same again and he wants her to compensate him. He has demanded £3 million at the very least from her £10 million fortune."
Amy, 24, has angrily denied claims she is planning to leave Blake.
She fumed outside her North London home: "We will be together forever. We are not splitting up and I don't have a new boyfriend. I am totally in love with Blake. I couldn't be happier. The summer is coming and I can't wait to get my Blake back."
Amy's worried father Mitch flew home from a holiday in Spain yesterday (28.04.08), after reading about his daughter's police caution for common assault last week.
A source revealed: "You could just hear screaming and shouting inside. Mitch was telling Amy, 'You've got to f***ing pull yourself together.'"
