They tried to make him go to rehab...and he went. Unfortunately, it didn't appear to do Blake Fielder-Civil any good. The troubled ex-husband of the late Amy Winehouse is in a medically induced coma and on life support after overdosing last Friday. According to the Daily Mail, the 30-year-old addict is struggling to stay alive after suffering multiple organ failure following an epic alcohol and drug binge. Fielder-Civil has long battled substance abuse issues and was frequently blamed for the sultry singer's own alcohol and drug problems that inevitably lead to her demise last year. She died at the age of 27. At the time of her death, Winehouse was divorced from Fielder-Civil. He had moved on after knocking up 34-year-old Sarah Aspin. Fielder-Civil and Aspin are the parents of 15-month-old Jack. Despite all the drama and bad blood between Fielder-Civil and Winehouse's family, the singer's father, Mitch, took to Twitter to address the "terrible news" about Blake. He wrote, "Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery." After a night of partying with a pal late last week, Fielder-Civil reportedly swallowed his tongue and choked on his own vomit. Aspin tells The Sun that it's not looking good for the father-of-one: "The doctors say they don’t know the prognosis. They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection. They let me in to hold his hand after 45 minutes. I found out later that they did that because they thought he was going to die." Aspin also admitted to the U.K. paper that she is readying herself for the fact that Fielder-Civil might not ever regain consciousness. Aspin believes that her baby daddy may have been doing drugs when he was out drinking.
