( CM ) - Singer AMY WINEHOUSE has reportedly split from her incarcerated husband BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL - after finding love with her manager's aide.
The troubled singer is alleged to have broken off her 11-month marriage during a tearful prison visit on Monday (21Apr08). Fielder-Civil is currently being held on remand at London's Pentonville Prison, where he will remain until at least 9 June (08), on charges of perverting the course of justice, relating to a previous charge of grievous bodily harm.
Rumours of a split have been strife for the last few months, after Winehouse's increasingly erratic behaviour caused her to miss, or turn up late to, a number of scheduled prison visits. Her fractured relationship with her in-laws has also put pressure on her marriage, with Fielder-Civil's mother, Georgette, telling all to a British tabloid about Winehouse's alleged drug problems in February (08).
And, during an appearance at Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London on Friday (25Apr08), Fielder-Civil was seen blowing kisses and mouthing "I love you" to blonde model Sophie Schandorff, after Winehouse failed to turn up to support him in his latest court hearing.
Meanwhile the Grammy-winning star - who has experienced her own legal woes this week (begs21Apr08) - is said to have developed a close relationship with 24-year-old Alex Haynes, her manager Raye Cosbert's assistant.
According to British newspaper The Sun, Winehouse decided to dump Fielder-Civil after having time to think her relationship through. The publication also claims the Back To Black hitmaker shared a series of heart-to-hearts with Haynes before making the decision.
A source says, "She does care about him (Fielder-Civil) still and has been trying to be seen to support him through his jail ordeal - but she just doesn't want to be with him any more...
"She has been turning up late and missing (prison) visits so she decided to just be straight with him. He burst into tears and was begging her. But once Amy has made up her mind, that's it. She is filing for separation and making it official and has been celebrating ever since."
