    Amy Winehouse's ex-husband who admitted introducing her to heroin is making a 1million claim to her estate, according to reports.
    Blake Fielder-Civil, 37, is said to be demanding a monthly allowance, along with a lump sum, eight years after the death of Ms Winehouse, who died of alcohol poisoning aged 27 without a leaving a will.
    The singer's family hit out of Fielder-Civil, who lives in Leeds, saying he 'deserves nothing', the Sun reported.
    A source close to relatives told the outlet that Fielder-Civil had spent a lot of Ms Winehouse's money while they were together, and was in prison for a good portion of it too, having brought 'nothing but pain to everyone'.
    'To give him another penny would be too much,' the source said.
    Ms Winehouse's after-tax assets of 2.94million went to 63-year-old mother Janis and her father Mitch, 68, following her death on July 23, 2011, but the value of the singer's estate is said to have since grown from sing royalties.
    Fielder-Civil is said to have told Ms Winehouse's relatives that his lawyers believe his claim to be a valid one because during their six years together she released some of her most successful works.

    The pair were married for two years, with Ms Winehouse giving Fielder-Civil a 250,000 pay-off following their divorce in 2009 - and lawyers reportedly believe that the particulars of that agreement will be a deciding factor in determining if his claim will succeed.
    Fielder-Civil could have a case if the sum was not specified as a 'clean break', but if it was, there are no substantial grounds to pursue the claim, it was claimed.
    In a February 2013 interview with ITV's Jeremy Kyle Show in 2013, Fielder-Civil revealed his regret at introducing Ms Winehouse to hard drugs.

    Ms Winehouse's after-tax assets of 2.94million went to 63-year-old mother Janis and her father Mitch, 68, following her death on July 23, 2011

    He said they spent four months taking drugs together as 'addicts', due to his time spent in jail, adding: 'Then it got a lot worse while I was in jail and then when I came out of jail I was told that if I loved her I'd divorce her and set her free and I did.'
    He claimed he had used heroin 'three or four times' before Ms Winehouse was introduced to the drug, revealing that they were in an east London hotel room with a batch worth roughly 10.
    'I was smoking it on foil and she said can I try some and I said... I might have put up a weak resistance - the fact is whatever I said she did end up having some,' he said.
    When Jeremy Kyle asked if he thought that was the 'crossroads of her life', Fielder-Civil agreed that it was.
    Regarding his recent claim, a different source said: 'Blake is an utter scumbag. It is unbelievable that he is trying to tap into her estate and make a claim for money.'
    Ms Winehouse's mother was said to have been particularly upset by the move.
    Amy Winehouse had won five Grammy Awards for her 2006 album Back to Black.
    She was born in London in 1983 and made her start in the music business when a classmate passed on her demo tape to a record label at age 16.

    He's also proud of leeching off Amy and being associated with her. They already paid him off and she divorced him.

    ^ Some rehab they went to - first, where they could get clean together and second, where visitors could bring them drugs!

    Such a disaster. They went to the US to try to stop her record company dropping her there and ended up in St. Lucia drinking and drugging even more.

    ETA: Then she got banned from the US which was a good career move.

    Ok...I don't get it. If they divorced in 2009 and he received a settlement, and then she died in 2011, why would he be entitled to anything?

    Amy Winehouse’s former husband Blake Fielder-Civil is arrested on suspicion of arson after the 'off his face' 37-year-old set fire to his 7th-floor flat curtains and walked out laughing


    • Fire started at Gamble Hill Croft, in Leeds, West Yorkshire at around 8am today
    • Neighbours said Blake Fielder-Civil arrested after causing fire on seventh floor
    • One said he left laughing and on way out told people "I've set fire to my curtains"
    • West Yorshire Police confirmed a man has been arrested on suspicion of arson

    Amy Winehouse's former husband has today been arrested on suspicion of arson after setting fire to his 7th-floor flat.
    Troubled Blake Fielder-Civil, 37, left his council accommodation laughing and told terrified neighbours 'I've set fire to my curtains'.
    The singing star's ex then walked away to smoke more drugs leaving residents of the 16 storey Gamble Hill Croft, in Leeds, West Yorkshire, to rouse other tenants and evacuate the immediate flats.
    One resident said: 'Blake didn't care what he'd done. He thought it was funny, but all we could think about was Grenfell.'

    Emergency services were sent to the property at Gamble Hill Croft, in Leeds, West Yorkshire, at around 8am this morning (right, police and ambulance at the scene). Residents said the sprinkler system is switched off at the moment and it did not activate (right, smoke issuing from the property during the fire)

    The alarm was raised about 8.10am. Krystal Howard, 33, and her husband John, 52, live next door to Blake.
    Ms Howard said: 'We could feel the heat through our bedroom wall, it was red hot.
    'And then another neighbour came braying on our door shouting that there was a fire.
    'We have come out and seen and smelt the smoke and seen Blake just standing outside on the landing.
    'Blake said "it's only a bit of smoke. I have set my curtains on fire" and then he just laughed.'

    The couple said Blake was 'off his face' on drugs and he was more concerned about getting more high than raising the alarm.
    Blake asked the Howards 'Are you coming to smoke this crack pipe?' before walking up to the ninth floor, leaving his flat ablaze and others to call the fire brigade.
    'He was not at all sorry for what he'd done and did nothing to try and help people escape,' said John.
    'It was the fire brigade who actually located Blake before the police arrived and arrested him.'

    Locals said Blake is often 'off his noodle' on drugs and is a problem resident in the block, which is owned by Leeds City Council Housing, but this is the worst incident.
    'I hope they lock him up and he doesn't come back,' said John.
    Residents said the sprinkler system is switched off at the moment and it did not activate.
    'We could have been looking at another Grenfell here,' said a resident of the floor above Blake's flat.
    A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: 'At 9:02am today (26/11) police were contacted by the fire service who were attending a fire at a flat in Gamble Hill Croft, Leeds.
    'Officers attended and arrested a man on suspicion of arson. He was taken to hospital as a precaution for suspected smoke inhalation before being taken into custody.'
    West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service also confirmed it had been sent to the scene. A spokeswoman said the incident was over by 1.08pm and its vehicles had left the area.
    A police officer is currently standing guard outside Blake's soot blackened flat and the smell of smoke hangs in the air.

    How is this trashbag still even alive?
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Hopefully he's drying out in a jail cell somewhere after getting his ass Narcan'd. And not allowed back into this building.

    It pisses me off to think of possible elderly or handicapped residents having to be emergency evacuated out of their building because of this asshat.
