Amy Winehouse's husband ODs in prison



Tbdamywinehouse021908 While Amy Winehouse makes a go at turning things around in rehab, her husband Blake Fielder-Civil almost died when he took what he thought was heroin, News of the World says.

The 35-year-old was found doubled over in pain and puking all over the place by prison guards in the G Wing of north London’s Pentonville prison. He and six other inmates allegedly took the substance (likely heroin cut with a toxic agent) and immediately felt sick, sources tell NOTW. This is after he was let out of solitary, where he was being punished for failing three drug tests.

“This was a close call, but he might not be so lucky next time,” a jail source said. “If he carries on taking so many drugs, he’ll end up dead before long.” And the fact that he’s barred from seeing visitors including his lovely (?) wife, probably doesn’t help his druggie behavior any.
