Amy Winehouse’s dad reveals he could forgive Blake if he turns his life around
Amy Winehouse’s father has revealed that he could be open to the idea of forgiving Blake Fielder-Civil if he manages to turn his life around.
Former taxi driver Mitch, who recently blasted the 29-year-old for introducing his daughter to drugs, told The Sun that he’d now be willing to work with Amy’s ex-husband if he can prove he’s a changed man:
“I’ve made my feelings absolutely clear about Blake over the years. He’s got a lot to answer for. The thing is, whether I like it or not, Amy loved him at one point in her life.
“He has been in jail up north but if he sorts his life out I wouldn’t rule out the chance of him doing something with the education we have planned in the future. It’s a long way off but if he can turn it round anyone can.”
The 61-year-old, who will mark the one year anniversary of Amy’s death tomorrow with a trip to one of her favourite jazz clubs, also admitted that he’s only recently been able to listen to her music again:
“It has only been in the last couple of weeks that I have been able to look at her videos or listen to her music. If the music was on I could listen to it but I couldn’t actually put a CD on or watch a video.
“I was at the East End Film Festival and they showed a film where Amy did a thing in Ireland in about 2006 — Dingle. It’s a little church for 80 people. It was beautiful, it was great to see. Sound wasn’t great, but to see her enjoying herself was wonderful.
“It was just before all the trouble started really. She was in fantastic voice and for the first time I really began to appreciate how good she was.”
