Amy Winehouse’s former husband has revealed how he gave the award-winning songstress her first hit of heroin.
In an interview with British tabloid The Sun, Blake Fielder Civil has admitted he introduced Amy to the drug and say Amy tried heroin in late 2006 in East London.
The troubled star spent eight months in St. Lucia in a bid to kick her crippling addiction to drugs and alcohol – which nearly killed her following an accidental overdose in 2007.
Fielder-Civil, whose divorce from the singer was finalized earlier this month, admits he introduced Winehouse to heroin in 2006, and she later developed a serious addiction to the drug, as well as crack cocaine.
He says, “We were in a hotel in East London having one of our mad little nights. I’d been smoking heroin on my own before that, but never in front of her. I got a bit for myself and she looked at me and said, ‘Can I have some?’ I was out of my mind on drugs and I said, ‘Of course.’ Amy took to heroin like a duck to water, same as me.”
