Blake, Amy Winehouse’s ex husband who is in jail, might inherit her entire fortune.
Once upon a time Amy Winehouse was a little bit chubby, super talented, and released an amazing album. Then she met a druggy, got hooked on every drug in existance, and started to lose everything. Now she’s dead, and her ex husband (the one that got her hooked on drugs) might inherit everything while he’s rotting away in prison:
Fielder-Civil is currently serving a 32-month sentence for burglary and imitation of
possession of a firearm, but is aware of his ex-wife’s passing. Upon yesterday’s news, Fielder-Civil’s mother Georgette attempted to articulate her son’s emotions and predict his actions. “Blake will kill himself. He won’t make it without her. He will be devastated, totally and utterly devastated. He’ll go straight back to self-harming. I’ll have to ring the prison and he’ll have to be put on watch,” she told the U.K.’s Daily Star, explaining that despite the divorce, the pair were inextricably linked forever. “He was always ringing her and she was always ringing him. Blake always wanted her back. She couldn’t walk away from him and he couldn’t walk away from her. Her and Blake were both lost and we handled it badly.”
While Fielder-Civil received no compensation after their 2009 divorce, there is currently speculation as to who will inherit Winehouse’s estate, worth an estimated £6 million – £20 million. It all depends on the status of Winehouse’s will, if one currently exists. English law automatically assumes spouses as inheritors, and does not reverse this in the event of divorce. While Fielder-Civil was highly regarded as responsible for Winehouse’s escalating drug problem, the possibility of him inheriting her fortune would likely leave many friends and family members upset.
I can’t see Amy having it together enough to have a will. Maybe her family forced her to get one. MAN, that’s a messed up system though. Why would you give it to her EX-HUSBAND. In America it goes to your husband, if you have no spouse (or you’re divorced) then it goes to your kids. If there’s a lot of money, your kids fight over it in court. But for it to default to an ex husband seems super crazy. And dumb. I hope that doesn’t happen.
