Troubled songstress Amy Winehouse has been forced to cancel the remainder of her UK tour by doctors – because the strain of her husband Blake Fielder-Civil’s incarceration has rendered the volatile singer unable to perform.
The Back To Black star – whose performances have been plagued by reports of fans storming out over her incoherent singing and delayed start times – abandoned her tour crew on Monday night after her gig in Brighton, England, and headed back to London in a taxi. She was due to play a concert in Bournemouth on the south coast of Britain on Tuesday night.
But the remaining eight UK tour dates were pulled after Winehouse was spotted walking into the London Clinic on Tuesday afternoon. The clinic is home to doctors specialising in such fields as breast enlargements, cancer screening, liver problems, pregnancy and gynaecological matters, among others – in the capital’s famed medical centre, Harley Street.
In a statement from her record company Universal, the star – who has been battling a drug problem – blamed her recent erratic behaviour on the stress she has been put under following her husband’s incarceration at London’s Pentonville Prison. He was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of perverting the course of justice in relation to a charge of grievous bodily harm.
The statement reads: “Amy Winehouse has cancelled all remaining live and promotional appearances for the remainder of the year on the instruction of her doctor. The rigours involved in touring and the intense emotional strain that Amy has been under in recent weeks have taken their toll. In the interests of her health and well-being, Amy has been ordered to take complete rest and deal with her health issues.”
The singer herself adds: “I can’t give it my all onstage without my Blake. I’m so sorry but I don’t want to do the shows half-heartedly; I love singing. My husband is everything to me and without him it’s just not the same.”
