Mitch Winehouse says pray for Amy's ex husband Blake


Blake Fielder-Civil and Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's father has asked his late daughter's fans to pray for her ex-husband, who is thought to be seriously ill.

It's being reported that Blake Fielder-Civil was taken to hospital with multiple organ failure after a drink and drugs binge.

Mitch Winehouse tweeted: "Terrible news about Blake. Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery."

The former music video assistant married Amy Winehouse in 2007.

The pair divorced two years later.

Blake Fielder-Civil was jailed in June last year after he was found with £4,000 of stolen goods and an imitation gun.

He was freed with a tag two weeks ago in preparation for full release later this month.

A spokesman for Dewsbury and District hospital in west Yorkshire said it could not "confirm or deny" whether the 30-year-old was put into an induced coma and is on a life-support machine.

Blake Fielder-Civil has a 15-month-old son with girlfriend Sarah Aspin.

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home on 23 July 2011, at the age of 27.

The cause of death was found to be accidental alcohol poisoning.
