On what would have been Amy Winehouse's 40th birthday, her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil appeared on Good Morning Britain and openly addressed his role in introducing her to heroin. Blake, now 41, expressed remorse and admitted "full accountability" for his actions, stating that he had carried the burden of her death for the past 10 years.
A tragic love story
Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil met in London in 2005 and got married two years later. However, their relationship was marked by turbulence and drug use. Just months after getting married, they were photographed after a heated argument, revealing the impact that heroin had on their lives.
A confession of guilt
During his interview, Blake admitted that he was responsible for introducing Amy to heroin. He acknowledged that it was a dangerous and harmful drug, but at the time, he didn't anticipate the devastating consequences it would have on their lives. However, he also emphasized that he had not taken any steps to romanticize or profit from their experiences.
Regrets and reflection
Blake expressed deep regret for his actions and stated that if given the chance, he would do things differently. He spoke about the need to be kinder to himself and learn from his mistakes. Despite his remorse, Blake confessed that he had not reached out to Amy's family on her birthday anniversary, as he did not believe they would welcome his presence.
Tragic loss and lasting impact
Amy's death at the age of 27 was a devastating loss for the music industry and her legions of fans. Known for her powerful voice and unique lyrics, she was one of the biggest names in music. However, her struggles with addiction and mental health were well-documented. She was found lifeless in her North London flat, a victim of alcohol poisoning.
Despite his culpability, Fielder-Civil not only took responsibility for introducing Amy Winehouse to heroin, but also shed light on the complexities of their relationship and expressed his enduring love and sadness for the woman he once called his best friend. His candid interview serves as a reminder of the destructive power of addiction.
