She might be married, with her grotty hubby Blake Fielder-what’s-his-face currently avoiding dropping the soap in his prison showers, but that hasn’t stopped Amy Winehouse bagging herself a new fella. This new lucky chap, 24-year-old Alex Haynes, is her manager’s assistant and has been described as a “clean-cut mummy’s boy”, just like Blake then, eh? This month-long romance has blossomed despite Alex not smoking or drinking, and now the Wino is working out how best to tell her imprisoned husband that she wants a divorce. Good luck with that one.
A fortnight ago, Amy is said to have consulted with financial gurus on how best to hold on to her £10 fortune and though she has told Blake that the love has gone, she is stalling on divorce talks. A source close to the sizzled star told the Sun: “Amy doesn’t want the truth coming out because she doesn’t want him reading things that will upset him in case he tries to do anything silly in jail. She does care about him still and has been trying to be seen to support him through his jail ordeal — but she just doesn’t want to be with him any more.”
So, why has Amy turned to Alex and what about all those icky public demonstrations of love for Blake? The source explains: “She has been fed up for ages and saying she wants to call it a day. All Blake does is scream and shout at her on the phone from prison and curse at her and his family blame her and criticise her. The pressure has been building and building and while she was away working with Mark Ronson she had time to think about everything.”
“The trial is coming up and as it gets nearer and nearer the thought that he could come out has been on her mind — and it’s not what she wants any more. Even the thought of having to go to court and publicly support him and see his family has been too much for her and has been doing her head in. She has been turning up late and missing visits so she decided to just be straight with him.”
“He burst into tears and was begging her. But once Amy has made up her mind, that’s it. While he has been inside she has not been faithful to him and got herself in a position where he couldn’t come back anyway because too much has gone on while he has been inside. She is filing for separation and making it official and has been celebrating ever since.”
Fingers crossed that away from Blake’s influence, Amy can learn from her “mummy’s boy” and rid herself of the drink and drugs, but after proclaiming undying love for one man only to replace him shortly after, how long can we give this new romance? And could Blake rival Heather Mills as the ultimate money-grabbing ex?
