Blake Fielder-Civil is nothing short of heartbroken over the tragic death of his former wife Amy Winehouse, says his current girlfriend, Sarah Aspin.

Currently incarcerated (big surprise right there), Blake spoke on the subject through Aspin, who was granted special visitation rights on Monday.

She told the UK’s Sun on his behalf:

“I will never ever again feel the love I felt for her,” he told Sarah Aspin. “Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love.”

“I can’t believe she’s dead. My tears will never dry.”

Staff at Leeds’ Armley Jail have been instructed to pay special attention to Blake Fielder-Civil, who began serving a 32-month sentence in june.

Blake, who spent much of his marriage to Amy in jail for assault and obstructing justice, is now doing time for burglary and firearm possession.

 
According to Aspin, Fielder-Civil, a former video production assistant, is totally “devastated and shattered” by the news of his ex-wife’s death.

“He just can’t take it that she’s dead and he’ll never see her again.”

“Blake rang me Saturday after the prison authorities told him she’d died,” Aspin told The Sun. “I just couldn’t console him. He was in total shock.”

Calling Fielder-Civil and Winehouse “soul mates,” Aspin added that “they couldn’t live with each other, and they couldn’t live without each other.”

“It’s hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand.”

After two turbulent and extraordinarily dangerous years of marriage, Winehouse filed for divorce from Fielder-Civil in 2009. At the time, she told the tabloid News of the World that their “whole marriage was based on doing drugs.”

“I’ve finally escaped from hell,” Winehouse said at the time. “I’m in love again, and I don’t need drugs. Look at me; I’m glowing!”

Winehouse’s cause of death is still unknown.
