Does Amy Winehouse have a new man?

Amy Winehouse is reportedly set to divorce her incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil, after falling for another man.

Amy has been spotted holding hands and cuddling up to her manager Raye Cosbert's assistant, Alex Haynes, and, according to The Sun, the pair have been growing close for the last month.

Alex has been described as a 'clean-cut mummy's boy from Gloucesterhire' who isn't a big drinker and who doesn't take drugs – the opposite, then, of her husband Blake, who currently resides in a North London jail awaiting trial for allegedly perverting the course of justice.

Blake and Amy have been married for 11 months, but recent signs show the marriage is in trouble. The singer failed to make it to the prison for his birthday recently, and yesterday was a no-show at his trial date court hearing.

In fact, it has been reported that Amy has told Blake their marriage is over.

Yesterday, Amy's mum Janis, admitted she had recently been introduced to Haynes – and that she gives the new couple her full blessing.

She told the Sunday Mirror: 'I'd spoken to Alex a couple of times over the phone, but this was the first time I'd actually met him.

'He's a lovely boy - gentle and sweet. He really looked after Amy popping out to buy cigarettes, papers, anything she wanted.

'He works for her manager so their relationship was professional to begin with but if they've made something of it, I'm thrilled.

'Blake has sent her down the wrong path - drugs and self-harm. She needs a man she can depend on, who can look after her.

She added: 'I'm praying that Alex is that man.'
