Blake Fielder-Civil 'overdosed over Amy Winehouse texts'

By
Blake Fielder-Civil overdosed on heroin after reading old text messages from former wife Amy Winehouse, his mum Georgette has claimed.

The 30-year-old was released from jail just two weeks ago after serving 12 months of a 32-month sentence for burglary and possessing an imitation firearm.

He discovered a text from Winehouse on an old phone, in which she asked if she could be the godmother to his son Jack, now 15 months.

"He had messages on his phone from Amy which he only got recently. He didn't have the phone in prison and he picked up messages from her when he was released," Georgette told The Sun.

"She said she wanted to be Jack's godmother. The grief for Amy started again. I fear he may have been trying to take his own life."

Fielder-Civil was rushed to hospital on August 3 after partner Sarah Aspin found him in bed choking on his own vomit following the overdose.

Georgette added: "If he pulls through it may be two months before he is discharged. The worrying thing is if he then goes back to his substance misuse. Next time he won't make it, there is no doubt about that."

Medics will keep Fielder-Civil on a life-support machine and in a medically-induced coma for at least a week.

Mitch Winehouse recently called for prayers for Fielder-Civil's recovery.
