Blake Fielder-Civil rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure
A recovering drug addict previously hooked on heroin, Blake was rushed into intensive care and put into an induced coma after his wife, Sarah Aspin, discovered him choking in bed.
“The doctors say they don’t know the prognosis. They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection," she told the Sun.
“I’m praying he’ll survive, but I’m having to prepare myself that he may never wake up.”
Jailed last year for burglary, he was released with a tag 2 weeks ago and although he was apparently doing well, had gone out for drinks with a friend the night before.
"Blake had a 1pm appointment with the probation service in Morley and said he might be late as he was meeting a friend," Sarah explained.
“He’s never really been a drinker, but when he got home with this friend, he was slurring his words and staggering — I thought he was on something. I was very angry because he’d been doing so well.”
"Next morning I went to get up and heard a horrid scratching and grating breathing sound. I looked round and saw Blake lying there completely grey.
“His eyes were rolled back and his mouth was locked together.”
Blake and Amy divorced after two years of marriage in 2009 and he has been associated with introducing the singer to drugs.
"He started her off on the road to drugs. But I don't blame him for her death," Amy's father Mitch told the press last year.
