Amy Winehouse’s husband Blake Fielder-Civil has had his trial for a charge of grievous bodily harm postponed – following his arrest over fresh allegations.
The troubled star’s husband grinned throughout his short hearing on Monday in London, when he was due to stand trial for assaulting barman James King.
But new allegations that Fielder-Civil attempted to fix the outcome by offering King £200,000 and a free holiday to withdraw his statement has resulted in it being delayed until 23 November.
On hearing the evidence against Fielder-Civil, Judge Radford at Snaresbrook Crown Court, in north east London, said the trial “clearly can’t go ahead today”.
Fielder-Civil has been remanded in custody on “technical” bail, noting that he remains in jail on the charge of perverting the course of justice.
Winehouse did not attend the hearing, but Fielder-Civil blew kisses to his mother and mouthed “I’m all right” and “I love you” as she wept in the public gallery.
It is reported the Back To Black singer, 24, is deeply distressed after her 25-year-old husband was remanded in London’s Pentonville Prison hospital on Friday.
Fielder-Civil is accused along with another man, Michael Brown, of assaulting King in June last year. He will reappear at the same court later this month for a preliminary hearing on both charges of grievous bodily harm and perverting the course of justice.
