Amy Winehouse's ex in coma after binge drinking
The ex-husband of late soul singer Amy Winehouse is reportedly in a coma. Blake Fielder-Civil, 30, was rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure after his partner Sarah Aspin found him choking in bed following a heavy day of drinking with a friend.
''Blake had a 1pm appointment with the probation service and said he might be late as he was meeting a friend," Aspin told The Sun newspaper. "He's never really been a drinker, but when he got home with this friend, he was slurring his words and staggering — I thought he was on something. I was very angry because he'd been doing so well.
"I had to get his shoes and trousers off to help him into bed," she continued. "Next morning I went to get up and heard a horrid scratching and grating breathing sound. I looked round and saw Blake lying there completely grey. His eyes were rolled back and his mouth was locked together."
The tabloid alleges that Fielder-Civil had also taken heroin. When paramedics arrived, he had swallowed his tongue and was choking on his vomit. They inserted a tube into his throat to allow him to breathe, according to the paper.
Fielder-Civil, who was married to Winehouse from 2007 to 2009, has struggled with drug addiction over the years. He has a 15-month-old child with Aspin, who worries he may have suffer permanent brain damage.
"The doctors say they don't know the prognosis," Aspin said. "They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection. I'm praying he’ll survive, but I'm having to prepare myself that he may never wake up."
