Blake Fielder-Civil’s mum has confessed that her son has to take some blame for the death of his ex-wife Amy Winehouse.
The pair were married for two years, before their divorce in 2009 and it is widely believed that Blake was the man who introduced the ‘Rehab’ hitmaker to class A drugs such as heroine and crack cocaine.
Georgette Civil was interviewed on Daybreak this morning and explained that her son does have to take responsibility for his actions.
The former filming assistant is currently serving 32 months in prison for burglary and possession of an imitation firearm.
“I think he has to take his portion of blame.
“I can’t say whether or not Amy did drugs prior to meeting Blake, I can’t. I think that’s something that nobody will ever really know. But yes, in my heart I think that Blake has to take a portion of blame.”
Georgette last spoke out about Amy’s tragic death on Saturday, when she revealed her fears that her son would commit suicide in prison, because he believed himself to be Winehouse’s eternal soulmate.
She said at the time: “Blake will kill himself. He won’t make it without her. He will be devastated, totally and utterly devastated. He’ll go straight back to self-harming. I’ll have to ring the prison and he’ll have to be put on watch.
“He was always ringing her and she was always ringing him. Blake always wanted her back. She couldn’t walk away from him and he couldn’t walk away from her. Her and Blake were both lost and we handled it badly.”
Blake’s current girlfriend Sarah Aspin agreed with his mum, and made a statement to the press, confessing that she has always known of his deep love for Amy, adding:
Sarah explained: “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.”
