Blake Fielder-Civil, the ex-husband of Amy Winehouse, is recovering today after being placed on life-support when he collapsed following a night of binging on drugs and alcohol.
According to the Sun:
Blake, 30, was found choking in bed after a booze session. Blake is said to have also taken heroin — was rushed to hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorks, with multiple organ failure.
Stricken Blake’s partner told of her anguish last night as he lay in a coma.
Sarah Aspin, mother of Blake’s 15-month-old son, has been at his bedside every day since his collapse.
She sobbed: “The doctors say they don’t know the prognosis. 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.”
Blake has had a long history with heroin addiction and his former father-in-law Mitch Winehouse urged his daughter’s fans to “pray” for him, saying it was “terrible news."
Mitch wrote on Twitter, “Remember Amy loved him. Let’s pray for his recovery."
According to hospital officials, Blake suffered multiple organ failure and medics have warned Sarah they can’t rule out permanent brain damage, as he was still critically ill last night.
