Concern is growing for singer Amy Winehouse after she was pictured looking bloodied and bruised following an incident involving her husband. Police were called to London’s Sanderson Hotel in the early hours of yesterday morning, but the singer refused to press charges.
Winehouse reportedly fled the hotel at 3.30am chased by husband Blake Fielder-Civil and flagged down a stranger’s car. But the couple were reunited hours later and were pictured together arm in arm.
Shocking images show Winehouse wearing blood-soaked ballet shoes, with bruises to her neck, bandages on her arms and make-up smeared down her face. Fielder-Civil had livid scratches covering his face and neck.
Police confirmed they had attended an incident but no charges would be brought. A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Following a third party report to police regarding suspected injuries to a woman in her 20s, police officers spoke with the woman and no criminal offences have been alleged.
The couple have been staying in the ?200-a-night five star hotel since leaving an Essex rehab clinic.
One witness who saw Winehouse fleeing down Regent Street pursued by Fielder-Civil said: “She was 200 yards in front. He was yelling her name. The road got to a bend and she ran round it.”
Winehouse then flagged down the car and jumped in. The onlooker said: “When the car got to Charing Cross, Amy ran to a newsagents for cigarettes. You could see she’d been in a fight. “Her clothes were bloody and she was covered in scratches.” An hour later, the couple met up in Soho and walked back to the hotel.
Winehouse’s family and friends are said to be deeply concerned for her welfare and her father, Mitch, has visited the hotel.
