Winehouse ex in coma after overdose
Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil

Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil is on life-support after collapsing following a cocktail of drink and drugs, the UK's Sun newspaper reports.

Blake, 30, was found choking in bed after a booze session and possibly taking heroin and was rushed to intensive care in West Yorkshire with multiple organ failure.

His hospitalisation comes just days after the first anniversary Winehouse's death from accidental alcoholic poisoning at age 27.

His partner Sarah Aspin, mother of his 15-month-old son, said he was in a coma and doctors did not know the prognosis. They have not ruled out possible brain damage.

"I'm praying he'll survive, but I'm having to prepare myself that he may never wake up," she said.

Fielding-Civil had reportedly been on an afternoon boozing session with a friend after meeting probation officials following his release from a jail term.

But he staggered home "slurring his words" and his partner found him choking on his vomit in bed at 6am the following morning.

A source said he had taken a packet of heroin and morphine he had obtained earlier in the day.
