Amy Winehouse's ex-husband insists their relationship was about more than drugs in GMB interview

The pair were married for two years.

The late Amy Winehouse had a tempestuous relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil before their marriage in 2007. The couple were once seen walking around London after a night out, visibly marked up after a brawl.

In 2009 they divorced. Just two years later Amy passed away as a result of alcohol poisoning.

During their relationship, the couple often did drugs together,  but in a Good Morning Britain interview earlier today, Blake attests that their relationship was not just predicated on the couple's habitual drug use.

The Sun reported that Blake appeared on the popular show to convey his dissatisfaction that Amy's father intends to stage a hologram tour for his daughter's fans, which the thirty-six-year-old views as a money grabbing opportunity.

When Piers Morgan contested this viewpoint, pointing out Blake had also cashed in on his late wife's memory by selling his story to the press, he disagreed:

"To call it cashing in is a bit misleading, I would have done it without any money but the reason I ended up taking money was I had been in a situation where I found it really hard to get a job and couldn't really earn money any other way."

The publication stated that Amy's family has said the money from the proposed new tour will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a programme which helps women recover from addiction.

Blake also told Piers that he "always" feels responsible for having a part to play in Amy's death, but that other parties also need to accept some blame.

He said that the couple only took drugs together for "about six months" during their marriage.
