Amy Winehouse's Ex-Husband Blake Fielder-Civil on Life Support
A year after Amy Winehouse died from an accidental alcohol overdose, the singer's ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is fighting for his life.
Fielder-Civil, 30, is on life support after suffering from multiple-organ failure following his apparent intake of drugs and alcohol. He was rushed to a West Yorkshire, England, hospital on August 2 after he was found choking in bed after drinking, according to the U.K. Sun.
"The doctors say they don't know the prognosis," his live-in partner Sarah Aspin, who is the mother of Fielder-Civil's 15-month-son, told the Sun. "They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection."
"I'm praying he'll survive," she continued, "but I'm having to prepare myself that he may never wake up."
And Winehouse's father has called on his late daughter's fans to keep Fielder-Civil in their prayers.
"Terrible news about Blake," tweeted Mitch Winehouse, who has long said Fielder-Civil introduced his daughter to hard drugs. "Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery."
Fielder-Civil, who has long battled heroin addiction, has had a few run-ins with the law. He was put behind bars in July 2008, according to the U.K. Guardian, and again in June last year for burglary and possession of an imitation firearm.
He was released just two weeks ago, though still wearing an electronic tag.
Winehouse and Fielder-Civil, a former music video assistant, wed in 2007. They pair divorced two years later.
The "Rehab" singer died just over a year ago on July 23, 2011, at the age of 27. The cause of death was rule an accidental alcohol poisoning.
