London (ANI): English singer Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who is currently in prison for perversion of justice, has been trading pictures of his wife for heroin. In order to feed his habit, Blake sold the autographed photos of his wife to inmates at the prison. In return for the cash he got, he would be given a few pounds worth of heroin.
"Blake has to pay for his gear somehow – and he has no qualms about cashing in on his wife's fame," the Sun quoted a source as saying. "“He'll take orders from other inmates then ask Amy to bring in signed photos of herself during visits. He usually gets her to write a little personalised note to make it look authentic," the source said. "Once he's back on the wing he'll swap these for Joeys," the source added.
"The boys think they'll get a few quid for them on eBay. It's not clear whether she knows exactly what"s going on... but she must find it strange that all these so-called prison hard men have suddenly become star struck Amy Winehouse fans," the source concluded. Civil's dealings were discovered on Feb 17, while he was recovering from an overdose in north London's Pentonville prison.
Prison guards had found him writhing in pain and vomiting in his cell, due to the intake of the contaminated heroin. Six other inmates were affected.
