Back To Broke

AMY WINEHOUSE's husband BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL will not be asking for a penny from the singer if she files for divorce - because he's "not interested" in her money.

The singer's spouse has vowed to walk away from their troubled marriage for the star's own sake, to help her battle drug addiction.

And he insists he won't accept any cash pay outs from his wealthy wife, despite the couple not having a pre-nuptial agreement in place.

He says, "I'm not interested in her money. I always offered to do a pre-nuptial agreement before we got married.

"And if Amy wants a divorce I'm not going to fight her for anything. It's going to be the saddest day of my life. But it doesn't matter if I turn up in the divorce court homeless and with no shoes on, I'm not taking a single penny off her."

Hapless Blake, who was recently released from prison, wed Amy in a surprise ceremony in Miami, Florida in early 2007.

His declaration comes just days after the singer reportedly announced her marriage was over.

In an interview with a Sunday tabloid, Blake also revealed he is responsible for tragic Amy's drug demons and spoke of his fears she will die young because of her addiction.

He told Britain's News of the World paper, "I made the biggest mistake of my life by taking drugs in front of her.

"I dragged Amy into it and without me there is no doubt that she would never have gone down that road. I ruined something beautiful. Now I have to let her go to save her life. I am not abandoning her. I am doing this out of love.

"I know that I have ruined something beautiful. It's all my fault. It ‘s the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my life."

And now Blake insists he won't be returning home to his beloved wife when he completes his rehab stint on 30 December - for her own good.

He adds, "Now the most dignified thing I can ever do in my life is to release somebody I love from my clutches.

"When I see pictures of Amy and the state she's in it tears my heart out. I just want to pick her up and help her. But I can't - because I'm the man who caused it all. It scares me to death that I can't fix Amy. But for her recovery I have to leave her alone.

"I will never stop wanting Amy an loving her and craving her. More than anything I am addicted to Amy. I will do anything for her - and that includes walking away."
