Winehouse Divorce Due In Six Weeks
Amy Winehouse is set to be granted a quick divorce from her estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil in a London court on Thursday (16Jul09).
The troubled singer's partner filed for divorce from the Rehab hitmaker in January (09) on the grounds of adultery after seeing pictures of her cavorting with another man on holiday in St. Lucia.
A judge will push through the Decree Nisi in London's High Court on Thursday, meaning the couple will be officially divorced in six weeks time.
It is thought Winehouse has agreed to pay Fielder-Civil off with a $3.6 million (£2.4 million) settlement. The star has an estimated $15 million (£10 million) fortune.
The pair's union lasted two years, with many close to the star blaming Fielder-Civil's influence on getting Winehouse addicted to drugs and drink throughout their tumultuous relationship.
And Winehouse's spokesperson is adamant the legal split is the best thing for the singer.
The rep says, "She is ready to move on following the end of the marriage. She has not had any contact with Blake for months and is focusing on the future. She's finishing off her album and in good health."
