Amy Winehouse‘s troublesome ex husband Blake Fielder-Civil was admitted to hospital on Wednesday night after suffering from multiple organ failure. An extremely heavy drug binge that evening led to him entering a critical state, and he had to be put into a medically-induced coma.
His long-suffering girlfriend (and mother to his young son Jack) Sarah Aspin has so far kept a bedside vigil next to his life support machine, and hopes that his condition will improve: “He has been calling for his Dadda. I’m praying for him and would ask everybody to do the same. I know he is going to pull through – he keeps waking up. I go down to the hospital every day – it’s heartbreaking to see Blake lying there. The doctors aren’t really giving us any indication of how he is doing. He looks like he is getting there though, bit by bit. He hadn’t been taking heroin and he is not a big drinker so I think he may have been taking tablets and they don’t mix well with alcohol. I just hope he realises that he can’t do this any more. He needs to think of Jack. This has got to be a wake-up call for him. If this doesn’t act as a wake-up call for Blake then I don’t know what will.”
Amy‘s father Mitch tweeted yesterday: “Terrible news about Blake this morning. Remember Amy loved him. Let’s pray for his recovery. Mitch.”
