'I can't describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love.I have lost my darling who I loved very much.'She wrote the majority of Back To Black about their stormy romance and the friend said: ‘Around the time of the divorce, all of Amy’s finances were sorted out – and Blake can’t get his hands on any of it.
Amy winehouse dating she died
Did the late singer struggle with love addiction in addition to her battle with drugs? Although the autopsy for 27-year-old British singer is still incomplete, we do know that she died alone in her bed, leaving many to suspect that a deadly mix of drugs and alcohol may be to blame for her death.
However, in a new twist to this sad story, we've now learned from Hollywood that Amy's boyfriend, director Reg Traviss, had dumped her a mere month before she passed away, which may explain why Reg has remained silent about her death, while her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil has released a statement, claiming that the news of his ex-wife's death has left him shattered.
Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011, aged 27.
Her album Back to Black posthumously became, for a time, the UK's best-selling album of the 21st century.
After watching the new film on her life, ‘The film brought up a lot of emotions for me and probably anyone with addiction issues,’ he says to the camera.
‘It dragged up the feelings of sadness that Amy Winehouse died and there’s something about deaths from addiction that feels preventable.’ He goes on to share with us what he would’ve done if he knew what was going to happen.
Her future A&R representative at Island, Darcus Beese, heard of her by accident when the manager of The Lewinson Brothers showed him some productions of his clients, which featured Winehouse as key vocalist.
When he asked who the singer was, the manager told him he was not allowed to say.
Still, according to Blake's fiance, Sarah Aspin, whom he met and had a son with after breaking up with the singer, the couple always loved each other."She always loved him and he always loved her — but it was just never going to work.""Basically they couldn't live with each other and they could not live without each other.
It is hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand his feelings," said Sarah to the newspaper.
Her follow-up album, Back to Black (2006), led to five 2008 Grammy Awards, tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made her the first British woman to win five Grammys, including three of the General Field "Big Four" Grammy Awards: Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
