The ex-husband of the late Amy Winehouse is reported to be on life support in a British hospital, in a coma after what appears to be a drinking and drug binge, according to Reuters.
“Blake Fielder-Civil, 30, who was married to Winehouse for about two years until 2009 and was widely blamed for fueling her own addiction to drugs, was found choking on his vomit last week after a drinking session and a reported dose of heroin,” the story reports, citing a story in the U.K. newspaper The Sun.
The news comes a little more than a year after the death of Winehouse, who sang “Rehab” and other hits.
Reuters reports: “His girlfriend Sarah Aspin told the newspaper that Fielder-Civil had suffered multiple organ failure and that doctors had put him in a coma.”
Aspin was quoted as saying: "I’m praying he’ll survive but I’m having to prepare myself that he may never wake up.”
The report adds: “Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23, 2011, at the age of 27 from what officials later determined was accidental alcohol poisoning. There were no illicit drugs in her system.”
Winehouse and Fielder-Civil had what has been described as a turbulent relationship that included violence and heavy drug use, Reuters notes.
