You could make a living exclusively chasing down Amy Winehouse news (god knows people do), so we tend to leave it to the gossip pros at TMZ and in the Brit tabloid trenches. Occasionally, though, Amy’s exploits outside of singing those Back To Black tracks becomes this fucked up fable with a single, underlining moral: Crack is whack, kids. This is one of those stories.
The details are far too sprawling and muddled by eyewitness reports and Amy’s self-contradicting actions/words to offer definitively, but here’s the nutshell: Winehouse and her husband Blake came to blows the other night, leaving both bloody and lacerated. Amy ran out her hotel room and up the street waving down cars to help her escape, frantic, out of her gourd on drugs, scared, while Blake was yelling, angry, trying to catch her. Sounds abusive, right? Well, Amy had a text interview with Perez Hilton to say that no, Blake is a great man, he was just trying to stop her from doing drugs (see, Amy was in her hotel room with a call girl about to get high when Blake found her and the ensuing madness began). Hotel guests heard noises, screams, crashes. Hours later, Amy and Blake kissed and made up. And they looked like this (warning, the pic is too bloody to post pre-jump, so make sure you’ve finished your beef stew lunch before jumping):
That pic comes via Daily Mail, who report that Amy said:
Blake is the best man in the world. We would never ever harm each other… I was cutting myself after he found me in our room about to do drugs with a call girl and rightly said I wasn’t good enough for him. I lost it and he saved my life … He did not and never has hurt me. He has such a hard time and he so supportive … He is an amazing man who saved my life again and got cut badly for his troubles … All he get’s is horrible stories printed about him and he just keeps quiet, but this is too much.
Head over for the details from their eyewitness reports, which paint a different story. And if you don’t want to see how this skirmish left Amy’s toes and knees, don’t click here.
