Amy Winehouse plans to divorce her Blake

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?

The Top 5 Rehab Stars: The Celebs who reoffend again.. and again

I don’t know what the lure of illicit substances is, as for every wild high you get a definite down, but somehow stars keep on dabbling. Maybe it’s the attraction of escaping from their own ‘stressful’ lives, or perhaps they just have inclinations towards the dark side. Whichever it is, there are some persistent bad boys out there that I thought I’d bring to your attention.

Number 1: Amy Winehouse

How could Ms. Winehouse not be top of the list? Amy is the most recent from our top five to go into rehab, entering on 14th August 2007. Unfortunately, however, she did not complete her recommended 6-8 week stay, checking herself out after just 5 days. There has been much speculation about Amy’s new husband, Blake Fielder-Civil being to blame for her drug abuse, but she recently spoke out against this, saying, “Blake is the best man in the world. We would never ever harm each other.” We wish Amy the best of luck for the upcoming weeks.

Number 2: Kate Moss

Kate Moss’s highly publicised rehab visit in 2005 resulted in the loss of many lucrative contracts for her, including Chanel and Burberry. She completed her stay at the Meadows Clinic in Arizona, staying for 30 days in total. Kate’s drug problem was exposed when pictures of her supposedly snorting cocaine where printed in a British newspaper. The pictures where taken in a London studio where Ms. Moss had been with then-boyfriend, Pete Doherty. Kate remained calm and collected throughout the whole affair, conquered her addiction and was not charged. Now we’d love to see Amy taking a leaf out of Kate’s book.

 

Nu Number 3: Britney Spears

In February of 2007, Britney Spears voluntarily checked herself into rehab after many reports of drugs and alcohol abuse. Pictures had been plastered all over newspapers and the Internet for weeks previously of her hard partying, and unfortunate flashing of her lady parts. Unfortunately, Spears had had enough after 24 hours, and checked herself out again. Her rehab attempt came weeks after her apparent collapse on New Year’s Eve, and her friend’s pleas for her to get help. However, Spears is still partying hard, and the release of her new single, Baby Boy, should hopefully help her get back on her feet, although it has received mixed reviews so far.

Number 4: Lindsay Lohan

Ms. Lohan, who has just turned 21, Checked herself into the Wonderland Centre in West Hollywood in January 2007, following three car crashes and four hospital visits, spanning over the last two years. After checking out, she regularly attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, although she later said she never considered herself an addict. After another car crash in May 2007, Lohan entered the Promises rehabilitation facility in Malibu when police found a ‘usable’ amount of cocaine in her Mercedes Benz. She stayed there for 45 days, and later said, “it is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs.” Since then, Lindsay has been booked on felony charges of possession of cocaine and transportation of a narcotic – in addition to misdemeanour charges of driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. She was later released on $25,000 bail. In a statement released later that day by her attorney, she was said to be “safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care.”

Number 5: Nicole Richie

Although Nichole has been arrested more than once, is pregnant with her first child and has done time in jail, she still claims that if she could go back in time and have a second chance to try heroin, she would still say yes. Richie was first arrested in February 2003 in Malibu, California, and charged with driving with a suspended licence and possession of heroin. After this arrest, Nichole, who was shunning rumours of an  eating disorder at the time, checked herself into rehab to address her weight problem. Nichole has recently announced her first pregnancy and told friends she is loving her new curves and boobs.
