Mitch Winehouse has said his late daughter Amy’s ex-husband “is going to get through this” after he was left fighting for his life following an apparent drink and drugs binge.
Blake Fielder-Civil, 30, was found choking in bed by partner Sarah Aspin last Friday before being rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure.
Fielder-Civil, a recovering drug addict, had gone out drinking with a friend the previous day and Ms Aspin, mother of his 15-month-old son, said she believed he might have taken an illicit substance.
He was put into an induced coma and on a life support machine in hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.
Writing on Twitter, Mr Winehouse said: “It looks like Blake is going to get through this. That’s good news.”
He later added on Twitter: “I am not supporting Blake but I am praying for his recovery.”
Earlier in the week, he had asked fans to pray for Fielder-Civil saying: “Remember Amy loved him”.
