Outrage as Amy’s ex ‘wants £1m’

- By Alisha Rouse Showbusine­ss Correspond­ent

THE former husband of Amy Winehouse is making a £1million claim to her estate – despite introducin­g the tragic singer to heroin, it was reported yesterday.

Blake Fielder-Civil, 37, is understood to be demanding a monthly allowance along with a lump sum, eight years after Miss Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning aged 27.

The six-time Grammy winner left no will when she suddenly died after a binge-drinking session in her flat in Camden, north London.

The singer’s family said Fielder-Civil ‘deserves nothing’. A source told the Sun that Fielder-Civil had spent vast quantities of Miss Winehouse’s money before they divorced, and was in prison for part of their turbulent relationsh­ip.

‘To give him another penny would be too much,’ the source said. Miss Winehouse’s after-tax assets of Tragedy: Fielder-Civil and Amy £2.94million went to her parents after her death, but the value of her estate has grown from royalties.

Fielder-Civil revealed in 2013 that he introduced her to hard drugs.
