Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil enjoys a romantic stroll with a mystery woman

Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil looked gleeful as he enjoyed a romantic stroll with a mysterious woman on Friday.

The 40-year-old, who was married to Amy from 2007 to 2009, appeared to be in better health as he walked through London’s Notting Hill.

The brunette he was with was a different woman than the one he was spotted with last summer, known as ‘Bey’ – who he reportedly lived with in Leeds.

Blake cut a casual figure in a white T-shirt and light blue denim jacket, which he paired with black jeans and white trainers.

He completed his look with a black hat and comfy white trainers while beaming.

Meanwhile, his female companion looked low-key in pink jeans and a black sweater as she walked beside him.

Blake, who shares two children with ex-wife Sarah Aspin, hadn’t been seen in public since 2018 before taking a picture with Bey.

Blake is a former video production assistant who has since pursued an acting career, although he does not yet have any TV or movie credits as an actor on IMDB.

He does, however, appear in a music video for Lily Allen’s 2006 song LDN, in which he tries to sell the singer flowers.

He was educated at Bourne Grammar School in Lincolnshire.

Amy and Blake married in Miami in 2007 after an on-again, off-again, off-again relationship, and were photographed months later after a furious argument that revealed they had used heroin.

The following year, Blake was jailed for his part in an assault on a cafe owner that led to Amy’s famous Grammy Awards tribute to “my Blake, incarcerated.”

Blake filed for divorce from the singer shortly after his release.

It comes after Amy’s mom Janis, 66, recently defended Blake, saying that their… love was “intimate and genuine,” despite longstanding claims that he was the driving force behind her drug addiction.

She spoke ahead of the release of a BBC2 documentary to mark ten years since Amy’s death.

Amy’s family and fans were heartbroken ten years ago when she died after a vodka binge alone in her bedroom, where she was found by her security guard.

Despite years of drug use, she was clean at the time of her death.

Many have blamed Blake for her demise in a Class A drug addiction, after they met and soon got married. He later confirmed that he had given Amy her first dose of heroin.

After years of animosity, Janis has promised that she has found peace with Blake and acknowledges the bond they shared during their short time together.

She told OK! Magazine: “When it comes to Blake, I’ve decided never to speak badly about anyone. I know it was about love and I don’t think you can judge when it comes to love. Love makes walking and talking…

“I believe that the relationship between Amy and Blake was intimate and genuine. Their marriage was impulsive, but it was still pure. It was clearly a complicated relationship, but love was central.’

In 2018, Blake insisted that his relationship with Amy was not fueled by drugs, and that they “used drugs for only six months of their marriage.”

He said: ‘The drug use is something that has been attributed to me for years, but in fact Amy and I only used drugs together for six months of our marriage, that was it. And before that, Amy didn’t do drugs, she smoked cannabis…

“I’ve used heroin maybe four or five times.” When asked if he was responsible, Blake said, “Always, always, but I’m also not ready to be the only person anymore. I feel like I’m the only person who has taken responsibility and has done so since Amy was alive.”

Amy rose to fame following the release of Frank in 2003, when she achieved both critical and commercial success with the debut, as her jazz-inspired singing won fans around the world before her second album Back To Black was released three years later.

In a heartbreaking twist of fate, the London-born icon’s dazzling career was promised by her demons after falling into the clutches of drink and drug addiction.

As she climbed the fame ladder, she discovered her demons – in booze, drugs and also eating disorders, which her brother Alex insists contributed to her death.

In 2011, an inquest ruled a misadventure after she discovered she had 416 mg of alcohol per deciliter in her blood.

A second inquest in 2013 confirmed that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning.

This is more than five times the legal limit for drink-driving and enough to put her in a coma and suppress her respiratory system.

In a June 2013 interview, her brother Alex said he believed her eating disorder, and the resulting physical weakness, was the main cause of her death.

He said: ‘She suffered greatly from bulimia. That’s not much of a revelation – you knew it by looking at her…

“She would have died eventually, the way she went, but what really killed her was the bulimia…I think it made her weaker and more susceptible. If she hadn’t had an eating disorder, she would have been physically stronger.”
