Singer Amy Winehouse and her estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil were granted a divorced Thursday, July 16, 2009, bringing to an end a train wreck relationship steeped in drugs, drama, and violence.

In divorce papers before the court it was stated that Fielder-Civil “finds it intolerable to live with the respondent.” In a question and answer style document Fielder Civil was asked to “State briefly your reasons for saying that the respondent has committed the adultery alleged.”

He answered: “The respondent confessed the adultery to me in April 2008,” and that since then he and Winehouse have not lived in the same household. Fielder-Civil, whose address is given as Claypole, Newark, described himself as a music video producer. The name of the person with whom the singer is alleged to have committed adultery is stated as “not known.”

In a separate divorce document Winehouse was asked, “Do you admit the adultery alleged in the petition?” The star answered, “Yes.” She also stated that she did not object to paying the cost of the proceedings.

Winehouse says she received the divorce petition in April this year while in St Lucia. The decree absolute will be granted after six weeks and a day, according to British marriage laws. It is expected Fielder-Civil will try to stake a claim on part of her estimated £10million fortune.

The star has been working on her third album for the past two years but has so far failed to impress record company bosses with what she has come up with. (Check out the video of her new song "Puppy Love" below!) She has also launched her own record label, which is expected to release its first album, recorded by her 13-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield, later this year. Yes, you heard me!

The Back To Black star returned from a rest in St Lucia looking a lot healthier than when she left for the Caribbean late last year. Before that, she was often photographed covered in cuts and scabs while looking painfully thin as drug abuse ravaged her body. Unfortunately, word on the street says she continued the party lifestyle on St Lucia and has turned to drink, often ending up in hospitals because of her binging. The singer has been living in two villas that come with their own butler and maid, costing her record company about £2,000 a night each.

She married former grammar school mate Fielder-Civil in 2007 in a small ceremony in Miami, Florida. The couple had a turbulent love affair predicated around their shared drug abuse.

They were often photographed looking dishevelled, bloodied and miserable during frequent nights out as their drug abuse spiraled out of control.

In May 2008 the Crown Prosecution Service decided not to prosecute Miss Winehouse after she was filmed smoking crack cocaine. Video footage of her appearing to snort cocaine was handed to police in January and she has been in and out of rehab since then.
Poor Amy Winehouse. This photo shows she's just not photogenic!
Mr Fielder-Civil was jailed last year after admitting to assaulting a pub landlord and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. He has been released and is now expecting a child later this year with Gileen Morris, a 31-year-old blonde he met in rehab last year.
