Blake is critically ill in hospital

Amy Winehouse‘s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil is fighting for his life in intensive care after suffering multiple organ failure.

The 30-year-old has been on a life-support machine in hospital since his partner Sarah Aspin found him with his ‘eyes rolled back’ and choking on his own vomit after a night out with a friend.

Doctors haven’t ruled out permanent brain damage.

‘I’m praying he’ll survive, but I’m having to prepare myself that he may never wake up,’ Sarah, 34, tells The Sun.

‘At the hospital I realised they were frantically working on him, trying to keep him alive. They said his left lung was not working and they were trying to clear it.

‘They let me in after 45 minutes. I found out later that they did that because they thought he was going to die.’

Blake – who married Amy in 2007 but divorced her 2 years later – is now the father to 15-month-old son Jack with Sarah.

Amy‘s dad Mitch once blamed Blake for his daughter’s problems with hard drugs, but he has taken to Twitter to voice his concern for his former son-in-law.

‘Terrible news about Blake this morning. Remember Amy loved him. Let’s pray for his recovery,’ Tweets Mitch.
