I admit that when I first heard this story, I thought the inevitable had occurred- that Amy Winehouse had passed away from a drug overdose.
The good news is that Amy is still kicking and breathing. But not for long if you ask her ex-husband Blake. He confessed about a dramatic night in summer 2007 when he saw the singer “die” for a short period after a three day binge on cocaine and heroin.
“She started having a fit on the bed. She slid down onto the floor before I could stop her. She started quivering again and it suddenly grew into what seemed like a full-blown epileptic fit. I was panicking. I didn’t know how to help her. I was out of it on drugs as well — and was sobbing and crying out: ‘Amy!’ … I knelt over her as she kept on fitting. But then suddenly she just passed out and stopped breathing. It was the most frightening thing I had ever seen. I felt sure I was watching her die right in front of me,” he said.
Once Amy had recovered from the fit, Blake claims she asked for “more drugs.”
