Winehouse husband 'didn't tell of jail release'

Amy Winehouse's mother has hit out at her son-in-law for not telling her daughter he was about to be released from jail.



Blake Fielder-Civil, 26, checked straight into rehab six days ago after leaving prison following almost 12 months behind bars.



But Winehouse's mother, Janis, said her pop star daughter was devastated that Fielder-Civil had not told her he was being released from Edmunds Hill Prison in Suffolk.



Winehouse, 25, is now thought to want to divorce Fielder-Civil, who was sentenced to 27 months for helping to beat up a pub landlord and perverting the course of justice.



Instead of visiting Fielder-Civil when he was released from jail on Wednesday and ordered to go to rehab, Winehouse went out partying.

Fielder-Civil is said to have asked Winehouse to pay the £30,000 fee for his stay in rehab, but the chart-topper is thought to have refused.



Winehouse's mother, 53, told Closer magazine: "What sort of husband doesn't tell his wife that he's being released? That says it all really, doesn't it?



"I don't know about Blake asking Amy for money, but it wouldn't surprise me. I'm glad she said no."



She said that while he was in jail, Fielder-Civil put pressure on his wife, who checked out of the London Clinic recently following treatment for a lung infection, phoning her three times a day.



She said: "He'd say things like 'If you love me you'd do this or that.'



"He'd... give her grief about things. Love is blind. I just hope she's beginning to see what he's really like now.



"Who knows what will happen between them? But I think the fact she hasn't run straight to him now he's out is positive.



"The main thing is that Amy gets healthy before she even thinks about going back to Blake. I know she can beat it, she's getting better each day."
