Blake Fielder-Civil has confirmed that he and wife Amy Winehouse have checked into a "retreat" in Essex, England.
This just in. After days of chatter and speculation, Blake Fielder-Civil, the husband of troubled British singer Amy Winehouse, breaks his silence, spills the bean on their getting into rehab. Contrary to media reports that the couple checked into an undisclosed rehab facility in the US, he confirmed to BBC Radio One's Newsbeat program that he and Amy checked into a "retreat" in Essex, England.
"The main thing is that me and Amy are getting better," Fielder-Civil said Thursday August 16th. "Don't worry, she's being looked after. We're going back to this retreat. She's determined to get well." Insisted that he and Amy are now focusing on their recovery, Fielder-Civil went on saying, "It's not as bad as everyone thinks, but she's fine, she's loved and looked after."
Amy herself refused to confirm if reports of drug abuse were true, commented "I wouldn't say so, no." And when being asked about her thinner figure, she revealed "I'm fine, I've put on half a stone [7 pounds] and I'm fine."
Amy was admitted to London's University College London Hospital on Wednesday morning August 8th in what her representative said for "exhaustion." Nevertheless, rumors are mounting that her recent hospital emergency visit was not due to "severe exhaustion," but a huge drug and booze overdose.
On Wednesday August 15th, rumors are mounting that she and husband Fielder-Civil checked into an undisclosed drug rehabilitation center in the United States to deal with their addiction problems.
