Amy Winehouse refuses to cover Blake’s rehab bill

The status of the icky, co-dependent marriage between ailing singer Amy Winehouse and recently un-incarcerated husband Blake Fielder Civil is getting weirder and weirder. First, Amy didn’t even attempt to see Blake after his release from prison earlier this week. Then, her father confirmed that Amy didn’t even know that her beloved Blakie And now, it’s been revealed that when Blake asked Amy for £30,000 to foot the bill for the rehab program he’s been ordered to complete, she refused to cover it. Sources say the marriage is hanging by a thread.

BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL, 26, headed straight for treatment after leaving prison on Wednesday — despite telling The Sun he was looking forward to a steamy reunion with his star missus.

But Back To Black singer Amy, 25, is refusing to cough up.

Pals insist Blake “has a lot of work to do” and their marriage is hanging by a thread.

One said: “Blake thought he would click his fingers and she’d stump up the 30 grand. But so far she has refused. He’s not happy.”

Friends say Amy — whose hit Rehab begins with the line “They tried to make me go to rehab, I said, ‘No, No, No’” — wants to be sure their marriage is worth it.

She was said to be livid after finding out Blake was being released only hours before.

Her dad Mitch, 57, a London cabbie, said: “He never told her. She learnt about it from reporters.”

Amy had three punch-ups with photographers on Wednesday as news of her husband’s release sent her into meltdown.

She calmed down only when Mitch turned up at about 10pm to take her to his home.

Last night, the singer was holed up at her flat in Camden, North London, as pals tried to help her through the crisis.

Blake, meanwhile, was starting a seven-week stint at the Surrey clinic, which he cannot leave for the first week.

He broke the rules last night to ask The Sun to pass on an impassioned plea to his wife.

Blake, who was in jail for assault and trial fixing, sneaked out to tell our reporter: “Tell Amy, ‘I love you and I wish I could be with you.’ I just can’t wait to get this over and done with and see Amy again.”

But Amy’s dad thinks Blake will find it impossible to stay off drugs.

He said: “Blake is a no-hoper. I want Amy to forget about him.

“The best thing that could possibly happen is for them to go their separate ways.”

And Mitch revealed that Amy did not visit Blake after he was moved from Pentonville, North London, to a jail in East Anglia.

He said: “Amy hasn’t seen him for ages, I don’t think she cares one bit.”

I don’t know if I believe that Amy doesn’t care. The day Blake was released, Amy was photographed more out of it than ever, with eye makeup smeared all over her face as if she’d been crying. But if it’s true that she’s not paying Blake’s bills anymore, that’s a good sign. It’s too bad that Amy won’t consider rehab herself, though.

    Not a good look, Amy….

    If that doesn’t just sum up this arsehole, expecting Amy to cough up for his rehab. I’ve never wanted something bad to happen so much to someone as I do to this piece of scum. And by bad, I mean permanent.

    When did she start going for the Juan Epstein meets Alice Cooper look?

  3. JaundiceMachine says:

    Compared to how she must feel on the inside, she looks absolutely divine!

    I hope she’s not purposefully playing games to test the bond of their “relationship”. That sort of fuckery will only leave her vulnerable to Blake’s manipulation later on.

    I hope she’s seen the light and realizes that her marriage (and everything it represents) is destroying her. But honestly, she’s so deeply entangled, I wouldn’t be surprised if she fucks up and takes this snake back into her life.

    A week ago she was talking to a French reporter of how much Mitch loved Blake?

    We don’t know WTF is going on and that’s all we know

    We’ll all just have to wait and see (damn!)

  5. ? says:

    Why doesn’t anybody ever seem to realize how fucked it is that this poor woman is being constantly hounded by the paparazzi? If I were her, I would be going apeshit at them as well.

    I can’t decide if this is the funniest or the saddest relationship in show business. It will make a great Broadway musical – depending on the ending, of course…

    Maybe she’s upset in the pics because he’s already threatening her with what he will take financially from her. As if he hasn’t taken enough from her already, as in her soul.

    That guy is venom.

    Looks like she fell on black top?

    I think the realization that Blake made a fool out of her, made her snap. Her lashing out at photogs, however inexcusable, is understandable. Winehouse’s management is also responsible for her downfall, too. Why isn’t anyone asking her management to keep the paps and those nutter fans away from her home? Her management knows that Winehouse is a mentally ill young woman, why escalate the situation by allowing this to happen?

    Imagine people screaming your name, making noise, and such, almost everyday. No wonder Winehouse self-medicates.

    Screw Blake, get this woman to a psychiatric facility.

    Crux…….Hear! Hear!

    For someone so strung out on drugs, it’s difficult to decide what she really means, or thinks, or even knows. How out-of-it is she? The best thing that could happen would be a Britney-like conservatorship by someone responsible (her parents?) which would allow them to force her into getting medical help, and protect her from Blake or anyone else out to take advantage of her.
    You know, Britney was NEVER as bad as Amy Winehouse, and yet there was much more public shock, disgust and dismay over her foolish/crazy behavior than Amy’s obvious self-distruction. I wonder why?

  15. Jenna says:

    Does anyone remember the other woman? Sophie Schandorff. I believe she has something to do with why Amy is so upset. I remember reading that during his trial they mouthed “I love you” to one another.

    Poor Wino is all I can say.

    Britney had been around for a much longer time than Amy has been. Granted I’m not sure when Amy broke out on the scene in England but Spears was in the states in like 97, I believe. So people were use to watching Britney getting controlled by everyone around her. Yet ever since Amy stepped out on the scene, she has had some type of substance problem.

    It could also be that Britney met her ‘Blake’ a bit later in her career than Amy did. Seems like the cause of both their breakdowns is/was because of their spouses.

  16. Orangejulius says:

    Not the cause, but maybe the catalyst.

  17. JUJUBABE says:

    God help her, she is a living trainwreck!!

    Thanx, Xiao! I just get frustrated that Winehouse’s record company and management are feeding of the illness and troubles of a rather sick young woman. Check her pupils, she’s zonked out on whatever that clinic gave her (methinks is pharmaceutical heroin).

    As repugnant as the paps are, sadly, they’re just doing their jobs. The fans that read the gossip sites which publish these photos are getting their demands supplied by the paps. If one doesn’t wish to see Winehouse in that condition, the maybe the fans would perhaps stop reading and posting at these sites?

  19. Jeanne says:

    Of course. Think of how much drugs she can score instead?
