Blake Fielder-Civil has revealed that he still regrets ever introducing heroin to Amy Winehouse.
Talking on the British television show, The Jeremy Kyle Show, Winehouse’s ex-husband talked about the couple’s addiction to the drug.
Fielder-Civil spoke about the first time they ever took heroin together, noting, “I’d taken it about three or four times, we were in a hotel in east London and I think I had about £10 of heroin with me, which is something I used to do after a club.”
“I was smoking it on foil and she said, ‘Can I try some?,’ he added. “I think I might have put up a weak resistance, the fact is whatever I said she did end up having some.”
Kyle then asked if that was the moment that changed Amy Winehouse’s life, to which Blake replied, “Well, yeah. We were using to once a week for about two to three weeks, to then twice a week and then it gradually built up like that. We smoked, she never injected it.”
Blake-Fielder then got emotional over the situation, stating, “I have to be really sort of conscious about what I say, I don’t want to feel like I’m shirking responsibility. The fact is what I’m saying is of course I regret it, not just ‘cos of the damage it’s caused Amy and the loss of life, but the damage to her family but also to my family and also to me.”
