Amy Winehouse was comforted in a North London pub by reality TV star David Gest and Towers of London bassist Kristian Marr as she burst into tears over her troubled relationship with Blake this week.
A source said: “A few drinks did nothing to cheer her up and she ended up sobbing her eyes out in the pub. She was inconsolable. “David put his arm around her to try and soothe her. But she was still crying when they decided to call it a night and get her taxi.”
At the weekend, ex-convict Blake – who is currently in rehab – spoke candidly about how he still loves his soon to be ex-wife and is hopeful they will reunite. He said: “Maybe this time we can do everything properly and not mess it up. She is looking beautiful and healthy now and it reminds me of the old Amy. She has been wearing my engagement ring and it meant an awful lot.”
The‘Back to Black ’ singer’s father Mitch – who blames Blake, 27, for his daughter’s problems with heroin and crack cocaine – is terrified Amy will descend back into drug abuse now she is in contact with him again. The 25-year-old songstress has been in St. Lucia for most of the year trying to get her life back on track. A source said: “Mitch told a pal, ‘Seven months of good work is all unravelling because of Blake. What is he doing to her? Why can’t he leave her alone?’ ”
Amy’s mother Janis is struggling to cope with the possibility of a reunion so much she can “hardly walk”. A source said: “Janis is in poor health and the thought of Amy getting back together with Blake has made her very ill. She lost her own mother Esther only last month, so the stress is talking its toll. She can hardly walk. “She’s begging Amy not to see Blake again after all the progress she has made this year.”
Blake started divorce proceedings from inside prison – where he was serving a 27-month sentence for perverting the course of justice and grievous bodily harm – in January after Amy was pictured with other men while on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Their separation is due to be legally finalised on August 28. Source: Bang Showbiz
