I love Winehouse’s voice... it reminds me of an old-time singer in a room full of zuit-suiters. But she has managed to ruin herself through drugs amnd breaking vows that are sacred. I hope and wish for the best to come her way... gospel music could use a boost.

LONDON (AFP) — The husband of troubled Grammy Award-winning singer Amy Winehouse is seeking a divorce on the grounds of her adultery, his lawyer said.

Henri Brandman, who is representing Blake Fielder-Civil, released a brief statement on Monday saying: "I can confirm that I have been instructed to commence divorce proceedings on the grounds of Amy's adultery."

The couple married in Miami in May 2007 but have had a tempestuous relationship, while Fielder-Civil spent much of last year behind bars for a vicious attack on a pub landlord and a subsequent attempt to cover it up.

Winehouse has allegedly struggled with a drug habit and Fielder-Civil was ordered to reside at a drug rehabilitation centre after he left prison in November.

The 25-year-old "Back to Black" songstress was pictured last week in newspapers in the arms of a little-known 21-year-old actor, Josh Bowman, while on holiday in St Lucia.

Her spokesman said: "Papers have been received and the matter is with Amy's lawyers."

Winehouse's father Mitch Winehouse has publicly aired his concerns about Fielder-Civil, 26, saying "it's a fact that the hard drugs coincided with their marriage".
