Fielder-Civil, 26, charged with GBH and perverting of justice, too swapped lingering smiles with her from behind a bulletproof glass. Winehouse next handed a note written by a red felt pen to his solicitor, to pass to her hubby, and at one point she took out a silver anchor on a chain around her neck and signalled to him she was caressing it.
There was a time when she appeared to be jealous with her husband, when he chatted and laughed with a woman guard in the dock. Winehouse stared with her jaw hanging open, before mouthing: "You chat away." The two of them continued mouthing words to each other for 80 minutes until a court usher lost patience with them.
The 'Rehab' singer was approached by the official and ordered to stop communicating with the defendant, Winehouse in turn just shrugged off the berating and got up and shouted out to her husband. "You're fit!" the Sun quoted the 24-year-old singer as saying to Civil, before she walked out of the court house while the pre-trial legal arguments continued to rage.
After making an exit from the Snaresbrook Crown Court in East London, she was asked how her hubby was doing. "Gorgeous as f***. Haven't you seen him?" she said. Before she left the court, Winehouse was said to have mouthed to her hubby, "I'll be here again tomorrow."
