Amy Winehouse’s incarcerated husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, needs to be at home with his mother – not with the troubled singer or in a rehab center.

So says his mother, Georgette Fielder-Civil.

“I don’t think rehab is the answer,” she said.

What is? “Coming home to us.” Obviously.

The momma’s boy is currently serving a sentence for assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice. Yes, that’s what it’s called in the UK.

Blake Fielder-Civil has been in jail since November 2007, and media reports said his application for early release this Christmas has been denied.

“We don’t know when he will be released,” Georgette Fielder-Civil says. “I can’t really say because I don’t want to jeopardize our efforts.”

She says she speaks to her son “sometimes every day” – but never to A-Dubs, who Mrs. Fielder-Civil recently said she wishes were locked up.

“I don’t speak to Amy. I focus my efforts on my son and getting him out,” she says. Her last conversation with Amy Winehouse was “about four or five months ago,” she says. “I probably spoke with her one more time after court [in June].”

“I feel all the media attention on Amy Winehouse has probably had an impact on my son’s release. That’s probably the hardest part of all. As a mother, what would any mother think when she sees Amy? It has had a huge impact.”

As for how Blake Fielder-Civil is coping with jail?

“He’s doing very well. He’s doing very, very well. He’s helping some of the other inmates – helping them with numeracy and literacy.”

He’s also been reading.

“He sends us a list of books that he wants, and his dad buys them and sends them to him. He just sent him about another eight books two weeks ago.”
