It has now been learnt that Blake Fielder-Civil acted as a drugs mule for the late Amy Winehouse.

According to Fielders mum  Georgette Civil who spoke to the Sun Newspaper, Blake  who himself  has an ongoing addiction to narcotics  she once had been present whilst he was in the process of transporting drugs wrapped in tinfoil to Amy who was working in Paris at the time.


She says: "He was gagging and choking and I was crying and begging him to stop, but he was travelling to Paris to see Amy — the drugs were for her."

Georgette spoke of her joy at meeting Amy the first time and how that quickly turned to fear when she discovered the true extent of Amy’s and Blake’s addiction.

“When I visited the couple in London, I deliberately ignored the signs of drug-taking. One day, Amy invited me to hotel where she and Blake were staying, he sat at the table and said, ‘Mum, I have a dependence and need help. There’s been times I’ve spent £600 a day on heroin’. I took him in my arms and said, ‘You are talking nonsense’, It was his only cry for help — but I wasn’t strong enough to face the truth.”

“He and Amy fed their addictions off each other — now she’s dead and unless Blake does something, he’ll die too.”

Blake and Amy had a very toxic relationship, which eventually led to a very tragic outcome.  The two got married in Miami in 2007 and went on to get divorced in 2009. Many believed that the end of their union would help their attempts to sobriety.  Amy and Blake had individually sought help to kick their on many documented occasions. The pop singer famously known for her trademark beehive and sultry jazzy influenced music had managed to kick narcotics, but unfortunately her attempts to kick her one remaining vice ‘alcohol’ contributed to her untimely passing on July 23rd 2011.

According to Dr Christina Romete who had treated the singer, Amy was determined to do things her way. She says:  “The advice I had given to Amy over a long period of time was verbal and in written form about all the effects alcohol can have on the system, including respiratory depression and death, heart problems, fertility problems and liver problems”.
