Amy Winehouse’s Ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil Says The Guilt Of Her Death Shouldn’t Rest Solely On Him

It feels so surreal to know that Amy Winehouse, who passed away at the age of 27 in 2011, would have 40 this year had she been alive.

Speaking with Good Morning America on what would have been the late singer’s 40th birthday, Fielder-Civil said that people still consider him “responsible” for Winehouse’s death even though the singer made her own decisions.

While Blake Fielder-Civil, 41, acknowledged that he made mistakes during the marriage – who doesn’t – during a recent interview, he did say he doesn’t hold himself accountable for her death, and neither should anyone else.

“That’s one of the reasons I wanted to speak today. Yeah, I do. I do,” he said referring to the fact people still see him as causing Amy’s death. “And that’s OK. I can’t change how other people feel about that.”

He added, “But for me personally, I’ve needed to stop carrying that cross on my own. I’ve carried that burden myself for over 10 years. I feel, to be honest, that I’m the only person within that story that’s ever held any accountability, that’s ever tried to say, ‘Yep, I made some huge mistakes”.

Speaking on these “huge mistakes,” Fielder-Civil continued, “I was a 20-something-year-old drug addict. So I had absolutely no idea how to make myself clean, let alone somebody else who was a big cog in a machine for a record label, and there were vested interests in Amy carrying on performing.”

When host Ben Shephard called Winehouse a “very vulnerable” person and a “fragile soul,” he accepted, saying, “Yeah, she was. I think that fragility there is what people connected with in the albums and the songwriting.”

Even though Fielder-Civil and Winehouse’s marriage was a short-lived one, lasting only from 2007 to 2009, people still continue to blame him for enabling, and in some way, even increasing her drug doing habits.

In a 2018 interview, Fielder-Civil addressed what he called a skewed narrative as to the part he played in Winehouse’s drug use.

“The drug thing is something that’s been attributed to me for years. The fact is that me and Amy only used drugs together maybe six months of our marriage. That was it. And before that, Amy didn’t use drugs. She smoked cannabis, [and] I did heroin maybe four or five times,” he said at the time.

He added, “People don’t realize Amy didn’t do anything Amy didn’t want to do.” However, he did say that he feels guilty for not acting to save her from the downward drug spiral that ultimately took her life.
