Amy Winehouse’s Ex-Husband Blake Fielder-Civil Regrets Introducing Her To Heroin

February 27, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

NME reports that Amy Winehouse’s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil regrets introducing her to heroin.

He appeared on ITV’s The Jeremy Kyle Show to talk about their addiction to the drug.

He said he “didn’t think she’d ever experience (heroin)” without him. He added: “I’d taken it about three or four times, we were in a hotel in east London and I think I had about £10 of heroin with me, which is something I used to do after a club. I was smoking it on foil and she said, ‘Can I try some?’ I think I might have put up a weak resistance, the fact is whatever I said she did end up having some.

When asked if he felt that was the crossroads in her life, he replied: “Well, yeah. We were using it once a week for about two to three weeks, to then twice a week and then it gradually built up like that. We smoked, she never injected it. I have to be really sort of conscious about what I say – I don’t want to feel like I’m shirking responsibility. The fact is what I’m saying is of course I regret it, not just ‘cos of the damage it’s caused Amy and the loss of life, but the damage to her family but also to my family and also to me.

Winehouse died on July 23, 2011 as a result of alcohol poisoning, which was discovered after two inquests into her death. Last year, Fielder-Civil was rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure after drinking heavily with a friend.
