Blake Fielder-Civil: Comatose, on Life Support After Overdose!

by at . Comments

Amy Winehouse's ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is on life support and in a coma after suffering an alleged overdose on Friday, according to UK news reports.

Blake, whose history of substance abuse is well documented, was found by his girlfriend, Sarah Aspin, choking in bed Friday and was rushed to a local hospital.

He reportedly suffered multiple organ failure and has been placed on life support in a medically-induced coma in the West Yorkshire, England medical facility.

Sarah Aspin claims Blake Fielder-Civil arrived home late on Thursday "slurring words and staggering," and she feared that "he was on something."

Aspin and Blake have one 15-month-old son together.

Fielder-Civil and Amy Winehouse, who were married for two years until 2009, had an turbulent and tabloid-dominated relationship, to put it mildly.

In an out of jail for assault, burglary and firearm possession in recent years, Blake was widely considered to be the chanteuse's chief enabler.

Amy died in July 2011, a tragedy many believe could have been prevented had it not been for years of addiction aided and abetted by Blake.

That's nowhere on the mind of her family today, however.

Amy's father, Mitch, took to Twitter Thursday to express his concern over Fielder-Civil's health, writing, "Terrible news about Blake this morning."

"Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery."

This is yet another dreadful story about the effects of drink and drugs. I hope he pulls through and is able to see what could happen if continues to wreck his life in this way. He now has a baby and major responsibilities. I wish his mother had never spoken out about her son in the past (she denied the excesses were his fault during his time with Amy) and hope she now gets behind the real problems and ceases being in denial. It is a shame Mitch Winehouse was asked to comment on this sorry story. The last thing he needed was to be reminded of this horrible world of drugs when he is remembering the anniversary of Amy Winehouse's death. His words were dignified, but unnecessary as Fielder-Civil and Amy longer married at the time Mitch and Janice lost Amy.

Me and Amy are always gonna be close but we've decided we're better as friends. The fact is we're in an open relationship (well I didn't know we were til recently!!!) but I don't want that. I just want a loyal sweet, staunch, slutty girlfriend.

Everyone blames the drugs for [Amy Winehouse] being a f****** mess (or they blame me), but to be honest I've done drugs all my f****** life and it didn't turn me into a complete **** ... well a little bit I guess.
