  • Amy Winehouse could lose millions as Blake Fielder-Civil prepares himself for victory in the divorce courts

    The divorce case between Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil will be played out in the courts today, and it looks like it will be Blake with a smile on his face by the end of the day, rather than his pop star wife.

    The decree nisi will be pronounced at the Family Division of the High Court in London with a decree absolute – making the divorce official – six weeks and a day from today.

    ‘It’s a formal part of the divorce process ahead of the decree absolute,’ a source sold the London Paper. ‘It’s just a coincidence that she’s here for other reasons at the same time.’

    Blake, who initiated divorce proceedings from his prison cell back in January, cited adultery in official papers and is expected to stake a large claim on Amy’s fortune if things go his way. This is despite the fact that he himself enjoyed an affair while in rehab last year and is now expecting a child by the woman in question, Gileen Morris.

    The pair have not seen each other in months, with Amy having spent the best part of the year holed up in a pair of luxury villas in St Lucia working on her third album.

    Despite her extended stay in the Caribbean, she has, reportedly, so far been unable to produce anything that meets her record company’s high standards. However, the working holiday hasn’t been a total loss; Amy arrived back in the UK this week looking a lot healthier than in previous months and she is set to release an album, recorded by her 13-year-old goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, via her own record label later this year.
