Blake Fielder Civil 'destroyed' Amy Winehouse, says brother

BANG Showbiz

AMY Winehouse and Blake Fielder Civil were like "two speeding trains hurtling towards each other", according to the late singer's ex-husband's brother.

Harry Civil has revealed how watching his brother "destroy" the singer - who tragically passed away aged 27 in 2011 - through introducing her to hard drugs made him feel "guilty", and forced him to not speak to him for years after her death.

He said: "They seemed hell-bent on destroying each other and didn't care about dragging others down with them. It was like watching two speeding trains hurtle towards each other before a violent crash.'

"I felt guilty because everyone knows it was Blake who introduced Amy to hard drugs. I didn't speak to him for about two years because I blamed him for so many things. I didn't hate him. I just wanted Amy to be still alive. We got back in touch only a couple of weeks ago. It destroyed our family."

Blake's brother went on to confess that people spat on him and his brother as they walked down the street, and their parents split up due to the shame that their family felt from the 'Rehab' hitmaker's death.

Speaking to the Mail Online, Harry said: "People spat at us and called us junkies. Blake was demonised and local people behaved as if we had a contagious disease they didn't want to catch. Mum and Dad split up under the strain. We had always been very close, but now we rarely see our dad."
