Blake Fielder-Civil’s mum recently admitted that she worried her son would turn to suicide when he found out that his ex-wife Amy Winehouse had died and it seems she may have had cause for concern.
Insiders say that the troubled man – who is currently imprisoned, serving a 32 month sentence for burglary and a firearm offence – collapsed when he was informed of her passing yesterday.
The Sun reports that Blake wept:
“I’m beyond inconsolable … my tears won’t dry. I will never ever again feel the love I felt for her.
“Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love. I can’t believe she’s dead.”
Blake – who was married to Amy for two years, before they divorced in 2009 – was informed of the news by his current girlfriend Sarah Aspin, the mother of his newborn baby son Jack. Despite the fact that she is now with Fielder-Civil, she admitted that she has always known of the unbreakable bond between him and Amy.
She added: “He is devastated and shattered. He just can’t take it in that she’s dead and he’ll never see her again. Blake is the father of our son. But I saw him and Amy together and I know they were really in love and they were soulmates.
“She always loved him and he always loved her – but it was just never going to work. Basically they couldn’t live with each other and they could not live without each other. It is hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand his feelings.”
It has been reported that Amy may have died after embarking on a drink and drugs binge, because of a row she had with her on/off boyfriend Reg Traviss. Sources say he was incensed after he discovered she was in still touch with Blake and had been phoning him in prison.
