Fears were growing for singer Amy Winehouse today after she was pictured bloodied and battered following an alleged row with her husband.
Police were called to London's Sanderson Hotel by a worried onlooker in the early hours of Thursday morning, but the singer refused to press charges.
Winehouse reportedly fled the hotel chased by husband Blake Fielder-Civil and flagged down a stranger's car. But the couple were reunited hours later and were pictured together arm in arm. The shocking images show Winehouse wearing blood-soaked ballet shoes, with bruises to her neck, bandages on her arms and make-up smeared down her face. Fielder-Civil had livid scratches covering his face and neck.
Police confirmed they had attended an incident but no charges would be brought.
"Following a third party report to police regarding suspected injuries to a woman in her 20s, police officers spoke with the woman and no criminal offences have been alleged," a Scotland Yard spokesman said.
The drama took place at 3.30am yesterday.
One witness who saw Winehouse fleeing down Regent Street pursued by Fielder-Civil said: "Her clothes were bloody and she was covered in scratches."Reuse content
