Winehouse invites ex to join her in Jamaica

Amy Winehouse has invited ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil to join her in Jamaica.

The troubled star arrived on the Caribbean island on Monday so she finish her long-awaited third album, but friends of the 26-year-old singer are now concerned she won't get any work done now Blake is coming to stay.

The 'Back to Black' singer is currently arranging flights for Blake - who was released from jail last February after serving time for grievous bodily harm (GBH) and attempting to pervert the course of justice – who had been ordered to stay in Britain until the end of this week to complete his drug treatment programme.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Amy and Blake want to spend some time together away from home where they have been governed by his curfew.

"She is desperate for him to join her and, of course, he wants a nice holiday and some fun. Friends have tried talking her out of it – but at the moment she's more focused on work than she has been for ages."

Amy, 26, spent eight months on the Caribbean island of St Lucia last year in order to work on her LP but the sessions didn’t go as planned.
