Just a year after his ex-wife Amy Winehouse died from alcoholic poisoning, Blake Fielder-Civil is in a medically induced coma and on life support after allegedly taking a cocktail of drugs and alcohol. A week ago, his girlfriend Sarah Aspin, with whom he has a 15-month-old son, found Fielder-Civil unconscious after he had returned home intoxicated. He was immediately rushed to the hospital with multiple organ failure and remains in critical condition. Says Aspin, "He's never really been a drinker, but when he got home with this friend, he was slurring his words and staggering. I thought he was on something. I was very angry because he'd be doing so well." The 30-year-old has a history with drugs and alcohol, and admitted in a 2008 interview that he may have introduced Winehouse to hard drugs. "I made the biggest mistake of my life by taking heroin in front of [Amy Winehouse]," he said. "I introduced her to heroin, crack cocaine, and self-harming. I feel more than guilty." Amy's father Mitch Winehouse, who has blamed his son-in-law for his daughter's decent into addiction, recently tweeted: “Terrible news about Blake this morning. Remember Amy loved him. Let’s pray for his recovery."
