Amy Winehouse’s former husband Blake Fielder-Civil has claimed that he wasn’t responsible for ruining singer’s life and her ultimate demise at the age of 27.
Fielder rejected suggestions that he was responsible for her descent into drug addiction, saying they were both lost and damaged people, the Guardian has reported.
In an interview ahead of the release of a documentary about Winehouse’s life, Fielder-Civil insisted he was not the villain of the story.
Fielder mentioned that the English singer wasn’t a happy, well-adjusted young woman and he finds it disrespectful to imply that he was some machiavellian puppet master because she did have other addictions before she met him.
However, Fielder does “feels guilty” over what happened, and that he’d like to speak to Winehouse’s dad, Mitch, to ask for forgiveness.
