Early life and education
Blade was raised in Northamptonshire by his parents, about whom little is known, because he respects their privacy; it’s said that his mother was a nurse, and that his father was a real estate agent. He hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.
Blade attended Bourne Grammar School, and was interested in many activities during his four years there, while he mostly enjoyed partying with his peers.
He hasn’t shared many details about his teenage years, but it’s believed that he was 16 when he began using drugs, while he dropped out of school around the same time.
Blake avoids talking about his career, and it’s only known that he was working as a video production assistant when he met Amy Winehouse at The Good Mixer Pub in 2005.
He has appeared in various talk-shows and documentaries since Amy’s death, including the 2013 “The Jeremy Kyle Show”, the 2015 documentary movie “Amy”, and the 2018 talk-show “Good Morning Britain”; Blake also appeared in the 2018 documentary film “27: Gone Too Soon”.
He’s today staying away from the media’s attention, and hasn’t disclosed what he does for a living.
Love life and marriage with Amy Winehouse
Back in 2005 when Blake met Amy, he was already in a relationship with another girl, however, he broke up with her so that he could date Amy, and only a month later they already had each other’s names tattooed.
Blake and Amy married in a small ceremony in Miami, Florida in 2007, then split and reconciled a couple of times until 2009, when their divorce was finalized; it’s widely known that it was Blake who had introduced Amy to heroin and crack cocaine – on 23 July 2011, she died from an alcohol overdose, five times the legal drink-driving limit, described by the coroner as ‘The unintended consequences of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden death”.
Blake went on to enter a rehabilitation center after his and Amy’s divorce, and it was there that he met Sarah Aspin. They married, and she gave birth to their son Jack Fielder-Civil in 2011, while their daughter Lola Jae Fielder-Civil followed in 2013.
Blake hasn’t spoken of any other women whom he has perhaps been with, and as of April 2022, he’s married to his second wife Sarah Aspin, and they have two children together.
Hobbies and other interests
Blake’s active on Instagram and is today followed by close to 2,000 people, while he’s uploaded over 60 pictures onto the network, some of which were taken more than 10 years ago, and feature Amy. His bio reads ‘The media will always try to blame me on the facts unknown.’
Blake’s today staying away from the media’s attention, and apparently spends most of his spare time with his two children. He’s now living in Leeds, Yorkshire Enland.
He likes to travel and has been to various US states for both work and pleasure, while he’s also been to a couple of European countries, with his dream travel destination being Berlin, Germany.
Blake’s into watching movies, and his favorite actor is Vin Diesel, while a couple of his favorite films include “xXx”, the franchise “Fast and Furious”, and “Riddick”.
Blake was imprisoned from 21 July 2008 to 25 February 2009, after he had assaulted a pub landlord, breaking his cheek; he was also charged with bribing the landlord so that he wouldn’t appear at court.

Who was Amy Winehouse?
Amy Jade Winehouse was born in London, England, on 14 September 1983 – her zodiac sign was Virgo, and she held British nationality. Her 2006 album “Back to Black” remains one of the best-selling albums in UK history, and in 2008 she became the first British woman to win five Grammy Awards, three of which were for Best Pop Vocal Album, Best New Artist, and Record of the Year.
She was raised in London alongside her older brother Alex, by their Jewish father Mitchell ‘Mitch’ Winehouse who was a taxi driver, and their Jewish mother Janis (nee Seaton) who was a pharmacist, and who struggled with multiple sclerosis. Amy was nine years old when her parents divorced, while she stayed with her mother and visited her father and his girlfriend on weekends. She studied at Osidge Primary School, ande was around 10 years old when she began looking up to her maternal uncles, who were popular jazz musicians.
In 1992, Amy began practicing singing and dancing at Susi Earnshaw Theatre School, and not long after that, she transferred to Sylvia Young Theatre School.
She then switched schools a couple of times, attending Mount School in Mill Hill, London and BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Selhurst, Croydon; Amy dropped out aged 16, so that she could focus on music.
She was first noticed in 2002, and then signed a contract with 19 Management. On 20 October 2003, she released her debut album “Frank”, having co-written all of her songs; the album appeared on the UK Albums Chart, and was nominated for two BRIT Awards. The following year saw her win an Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song, for “Stronger Than Me”.
On 30 October 2006, Amy released her album “Back to Black”, which topped the UK Albums Chart in January 2007, holding the position for two weeks; her lead single “Rehab” topped charts in both the UK and the USA, while the magazine “Time” named it Best Song of 2007. Amy’s other two singles to chart were “Back in Black” and “You Know I’m No Good”.
During the first couple of her 17-date tour performances which began in November 2007, Amy often sang intoxicated, and could had been seen and heard swearing at the audience; on 27 November, she announced that her other public appearances and performances had been cancelled, after she had taken her doctor’s advice to take some rest.
Amy was found at her residence by her bodyguard at 10 a. m. on 23 July 2011, who discovered that she wasn’t breathing; he called an ambulance but she was pronounced dead when the medics arrived.
As Amy and Blake were in an on-and-off relationship, she dated a couple of other men in those same years when she was with Blake, including when they were married – these included British singer-songwriter Alexander George ‘Alex’ Clare, British actor Joshua Bowman, and British film writer and director Reginald Stephen Traviss.
