Amy Winehouse’s ex Blake fighting for life
London: Amy Winehouse’s former husband Blake Fielder-Civil is on life support after he collapsed following an alleged drink and drug binge.
He was found choking in bed by his partner Sarah Aspin last Friday, before he was rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure.
The recovering drug addict had gone out drinking with a pal the previous day.
Aspin, who is mother to his 15-month-old son, said she believed that he might have taken an illicit substance.
Fielder-Civil has been put into an induced coma and is on a life support machine in hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.
“The doctors said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection,” the Mirror quoted Aspin, who met Winehouse’s former lover in rehab three years ago, as telling the Sun.
“I’m praying he’ll survive, but I’m having to prepare myself that he may never wake up,” she said.
Aspin said that her partner had attended an appointment with the Probation Service in Morley and then met a friend the day before he was rushed to hospital.
He returned home slurring his words and staggering before he was put to bed.
The next morning Aspin woke to find him unconscious before paramedics confirmed that he had swallowed his tongue and choked on his vomit.
Fielder-Civil has long battled heroin addiction and had spent time in prison in 2007.
