Amy Winehouse’s controversial ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, has spoken out about the star and made the startling claim that the singer tried to kill herself just eight weeks before she passed away from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.
Blake, who Amy claimed was the love of her life, had broken the star’s heart after he got his new partner Sarah pregnant.
When Amy called to remind him that it was their wedding anniversary, Sarah was going into labour and so Blake hung up the phone.
He shared: “I told her I couldn’t talk, as Sarah was having my baby and hung up. In hindsight I should have known that would really upset and hurt her.
"Amy would have loved to have a child, yet it was Sarah having a baby with me and not her. But I was caught up in the moment and I didn’t think.
"The day after, I phoned her to apologise and say happy anniversary and she told me she had cut herself really badly. She said it had been serious. But Amy really no longer cared if she lived or died.
"She was completely indifferent and there’s a very fine line between that and suicide. Amy was a serious danger to herself.”
Despite toxicology reports confirming Amy’s cause of death back in 2011, Blake continues to insist that it was actually a second suicide attempt, saying that those close to her should have spotted the warning signs.
He added to The Sun: “I suspect Amy’s death was a suicide. After years of drinking she must have known she was drinking far beyond what she could handle. Maybe she expected someone to come in and stop her, take the bottle away. But instead she was left alone to drink herself to death in that house.
"The people around her were so busy celebrating our divorce and her giving up her heroin habit that they didn’t see how much work still had to be done. Each and every person close to Amy, including me, deserves a share of blame.
"Amy drank miniatures, it was her only way of having a semblance of control over the situation. She would have six or seven every day.
"But that way she could tell herself she hadn’t had a full bottle. It was like a heroin addict smoking heroin, but saying, ‘At least I don’t inject it’. After we divorced in 2009 she’d visit me in Sheffield, and she would be sweating and shaking really badly. It was awful to witness.”
Amy’s bereaved friends and family have not commented on Blake’s latest allegations.
