The tumultuous two-year marriage of Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil has officially come to an end after a hearing in a courtroom in London today.
As one of 25 couples seeking to dissolve their marriages, Fielder-Civil was granted the divorce from Winehouse in a hearing that lasted all of 75 seconds.
The grounds? The songbird’s admitted adultery, according to court papers.
Neither Amy Winehouse nor Blake Fielder-Civil were on hand at Court Three of the High Court Family Division in London as the divorce was granted.
In a question-and-answer format, the court’s papers show that it was Blake Fielder-Civil who filed to dissolve the fairy-tale union. Asked if he finds it “intolerable” to live with Winehouse, he replies, “Yes.” Hard to blame the guy.
Asked to “state briefly your reasons for saying that the respondent has committed the adultery alleged,” Blake Fielder-Civil said, “The Respondent confessed the adultery in April 2008.” Wonder who the other man was?

The papers show they have not lived in the same household since that date. Mostly because Blake served much of the last two years behind bars. Details.
In her response, Winehouse is asked if she admitted “the adultery alleged in the petition.” She answers a simple “yes.” She never intended to defend this.
The couple married in Miami May 2007.
Talk of a divorce surfaced in January, when Fielder-Civil signaled he would start proceedings. The singer initially said she would not let it happen.
Then rumors broke that Blake knocked up Gilleen Morris in rehab, and was at the same time boning a teenager named Francesca Morralee. It was about that point in which Amy probably realized divorcing Blake might not be the end of the world.
Here’s a look back at some of their most magical moments …
With alcoholism taking the place of the hard drug addiction Amy Winehouse allegedly beat, Janis Winehouse tells ITV News that her daughter is “in trouble.”
“The need to rescue her is enormous,” says Janis. “I just want her to be okay and I would do whatever it took to make that right. Amy is in denial.”
“She probably feels trapped, as her body is trapping her. But I know with addiction you do not have the choice. The substance itself directs you.”
Janis says in getting over Amy’s drug problems, alcohol took their place. The result? She starts drinking at 9 a.m. most days. That’s very healthy.
“I wanted to say ‘Amy, what are you doing? Don’t you know what you’re doing?’ But by then she is on to it to help her through, which I understand.”
Way to take a strong position, Jan.
Amy’s dad Mitch Winehouse adds: “I have tried it all – I said, ‘Amy you’ve got to do this, you have got to go to this doctor, you have got to do this, you’ve got to do that, you’re killing me, you’re killing your mum’. None of it worked.”
Of Amy’s recovery, Mitch says: “The last six months have been a remarkable recovery. A gradual recovery, which is good. With some slight backward steps – not drug backward steps, more drink backward steps if you follow my drift.”
We follow it, Mitch. A couple of times a week, typically.
Chalk it up to mere boredom or full-on addiction, there’s no question that Amy Winehouse is on a remarkable spiral into oblivion. Will she survive?
As for who’s to blame for this three-year bender? Mitch does not hesitate to lay the responsibility on the shoulders of Amy’s ex, Blake Fielder-Civil.
“The option of them being together is too horrible to contemplate,” he says.
Just imagine how Gilleen Morris feels, carrying his child.

Yesterday’s make-up has run across Amy Winehouse’s face.
She is wearing a bright-pink bra under a cropped Nike top.
You can see scars which indicate that she has been self-harming – cutting herself – again and there are two fresh cigarette burns on her stomach.
Amy, 25, was hailed as the most exciting vocal talent of her generation. She is living in two villas which cost her record company about £2,000 a night.
It’s a curious, dissolute life for the troubled singer. Lonely and usually drunk, seems more lost each passing day in her Caribbean paradise of St. Lucia.
A lucky (unlucky?) journalist from the Daily Mail (UK) got to spend time with Amy Winehouse there, and the songbird coughed up some choice quotes.
Covered in what appeared to be self-inflicted cuts and burns, Amy apparently replaced crack and heroin with alcohol. She began drinking at 9 a.m.
“It feels like home here,” she says of the resort she calls home.
In addition to paying for her villas and the six people that tend to her on a daily basis, Universal has installed a recording studio for Wino, in the hopes that she will sober up long enough to record the follow up album to Back To Black.
It’s cost almost $1 million, and all Amy Winehouse has to show for it thus far is an increasingly high tolerance for hard liquor (and weed, natch).
She was coherent enough to say that she and estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil – who knocked up Gilleen Morris while in rehab – are still in love.
However, she added, “I couldn’t have given him kids – and anyway I want black kids, not white kids.” Naturally, who doesn’t? Makes perfect sense.
She said she was working on her temper, too: “I don’t hit people any more. I used to get into confrontations … now I just like to face things head on.”
Well, that’s a relief. Why are we imagining her head-butting people? And why do we get the sense that this troubled star is living on borrowed time?
Hey, don’t we all? Janis Winehouse says her songbird daughter has turned to booze to “overcome the boredom of being away from her friends” while in St. Lucia.
Never mind that Amy seems to make plenty of friends in St. Lucia, or that she could easily return to the UK at any time, since she has no job. But whatever.
Earlier this month, Winehouse shocked fans (but not us, in the least) with an erratic performance at a jazz festival on the Caribbean island and was hospitalized.
Dehydration, a.k.a. an epic bender, had taken its toll.
Perhaps all Amy needs is some familiar faces around to make her relax … just not Blake Fielder-Civil, of course. Janis Winehouse told Closer magazine:
“Two of her closest friends are going over to try to calm her down a bit. I think it will make a big difference because in the past few weeks she’s bored.”
A surprisingly lucid Amy Winehouse and her mum, Janis.
“Amy knows her drinking caused the [disastrous performance]. Of course her band is frustrated, but even they can’t stop her,” the elder Wino said.
Amy’s dad, Mitch Winehouse, has supported the Grammy-winning singer throughout her addiction problems but Janis says he is “now having time out from her.”
“He hasn’t cut her off,” she said. “But he’s taken a step back.”
Last week Amy pulled out of a gig to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Island Records – forcing about the 482nd apology from her management.
However, Janis remains confident that her daughter will beat the booze.
She said: “It’s just another one of Amy’s addictions getting the better of her. It is just another demon she has to beat. She came off drugs on her own so I know she’ll stop drinking. It has to be her decision though, no one else can stop her.”
Never mind that she “came off drugs” by becoming a full-blown alcoholic and pothead. A parent can convince herself of just about anything, it seems.
She may have cancelled her doomed-from-the-get-go long-awaited UK comeback gig, but that hasn’t stopped Amy Winehouse embarking on a new endeavor:
Her own clothing line.
The troubled star, who is currently residing (note that the media finally stopped calling it a vacation) in St. Lucia, has been announced as the latest celebrity to lend their signature style to London-based fashion label, PPQ.
No word on whether PPQ plans on naming the new line “Heroin Chic” or whether each purchase will come with a voucher for a free bottle of malt liquor.
All we know is that somewhere, Blake Fielder-Civil is plotting how to get his hands on 50 percent of the royalties. Or where to get his next fix.
This is pretty much our reaction to most Amy Winehouse news.
While Wino may seem an unlikely fashion muse, PPQ is no stranger to London party girls – having paired up with Peaches Geldof in its first celebrity collaboration.
Launching later this year, Winehouse will design a capsule collection for Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker’s fashion line, set to be a homage to the starlet’s look.
Her look? What would that be, exactly? Tattered denim shorts, cleavage-baring dresses? Open-toed shoes that provide easy access to the veins between your toes?
Sounds about right.
Sounds like a can’t-miss proposition … provided it doesn’t require Amy to physically show up anywhere to promote it. Odds of her being conscious are iffy at best.
Troubled crooner Amy Winehouse has abruptly canceled her dreaded much-anticipated May 31 London concert, promising a full refund to those with tickets.
No explanation was provided.
The show would have been the first since her disastrous effort at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival this month, and her first UK concert since last September.
Wino has been in St. Lucia all of this year. She supposedly continues to work on her follow-up album to Back to Black. Don’t hold your breath for it.
This is also the reaction of fans to Amy Winehouse concerts.
Meanwhile, Amy Winehouse went into the hospital yesterday, reporting “chest pains.” She was given treatment and is now reportedly “doing better.”
They might as well name a wing after her in the St. Lucia facility. Who’s got June ’09 in the Amy Winehouse Death Pool? Mitch Winehouse? Anyone?
Earlier in the week, she was hospitalized for “dehydration” after embarking on a booze bender. She’s quit hard drugs, though, people. Baby steps.
Amy Winehouse was rushed to hospital for at least the fifth time in three hours months after another booze bender, reports the UK’s Sun online.
The singer fell ill on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, where she has been on vacation – if you can call it that when you don’t leave – almost all year.
Worried pals called an ambulance to the troubled celebrity’s luxury villa and the songbird was given treatment. She was discharged the same night.
Fans fear – and we can’t begin to comprehend why – that the latest escapade means she won’t be in a fit state to perform at her UK comeback gig in less than two weeks. She is scheduled to play London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire May 31.
Wonder if she’ll make it to that date. Not to perform, we’re talking about merely staying alive. At least one person in her life is quite skeptical.
Wino’s collapse comes on the heels of her disastrous performance at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival, where she shocked the crowd with an erratic effort (even for her).
“Amy’s gig might as well be cancelled now. She’s not going to make it. It’s not worth her while even if she does make it, it will be a shambles,” a pal said.
“She is not ready for it and she proved it at the festival.”
Despite having (supposedly) beaten her drug addiction, the Grammy-winning artist is now struggling to cope with alcohol abuse that’s worsening by the day.
Last month, her crazy, drunk ass landed in hospital after fainting in her holiday villa. Her spokesman attributed that fainting spell to “dehydration.”
Try mixing in the occasional water with those beers, girl.
