Winehouse 'won't let' husband divorce her

Amy Winehouse has slammed rumours that she has given up on her marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil - insisting she "still loves" her husband and wants to make a new life with him in London.

Amy Winehouse has slammed rumours that she has given up on her marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil - insisting she "still loves" her husband and wants to make a new life with him in London.

Fielder-Civil, who has been serving a time in jail for breaking the terms of his probation, filed for divorce in January.

The singer was subsequently reported to be fighting to save their relationship - even flying back from a holiday in the Caribbean after hearing he had been released from prison.

Recent rumours suggested the 'Back To Black' singer had given up hope of repairing their damaged relationship, after Fielder-Civil confirmed his plans to divorce the star.

But Winehouse has come out in defence of her marriage - announcing that she has always planned to reconcile with her estranged partner.

She tells Now magazine: "I still love Blake and I want him to move into my new house with me - that was my plan all along.

"I won't let him divorce me. He's the male version of me and we're perfect for each other."

The star has also hit back at claims she cheated on her husband during her recent sunshine break, insisting a holiday romance should not affect her relationship with Fielder-Civil.

She adds: "Alright, I had some fun with a lovely bloke in St Lucia, but that was a holiday thing. I don't want anybody but Blake.

"I didn't want to go back to Britain until he was out of jail. I'd like to take him back to St Lucia with me because that's where we spent our honeymoon and I know he loves it there."
