It’s been just over a year since singer Amy Winehouse died, and it looks like her ex-husband may be following in her footsteps.

Blake Fielder-Civil, the on-again, off-again boyfriend and ex-husband of Winehouse, was reportedly rushed to the hospital this morning.

“Fielder-Civil, 30, had to be placed in a medically induced coma and is currently on life support after suffering multiple organ failure,” according to the New York Daily News.

Sarah Aspin, the mother of his 15-month-old son, reportedly found him choking and had him taken to the hospital.

“The doctors say they don’t know the prognosis. They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection,” said Aspin, according to the NY Daily News. “I’m praying he’ll survive, but I’m having to prepare myself that he may never wake up.”

Fielder-Civil has long struggled with heroin addiction, and reportedly went out with a friend just hours before being found in his bed.

“His eyes were rolled back and his mouth was locked together,” Aspin said.

She added that the hospital let her hold his hand for 45 minutes, but she found out later they did that because they thought he was going to die.

Winehouse and Fielder-Civil met in 2005 and were married for just two years. The couple divorced in 2009.

The two struggled with drugs together, and Winehouse passed away in July 2011 of alcohol poisoning.

After Winehouse’s death, Fielder-Civil was reportedly “inconsolable,” said E! News. “I will never ever again feel the love I felt for her,” Aspin claimed he told her.

“I just couldn’t console him,” she told E! “He was in total shock. Blake is the father of our son. But I saw him and Amy together and I know they were really in love and they were soulmates. She always loved him and he always loved her, but it was just never going to work.”

Despite the rocky relationship and loss, Winehouse’s father posted on his Twitter page concern for Fielder-Civil.

“Terrible news about Blake this morning,” he wrote, said the New York Daily News. “Remember Amy loved him. Let’s pray for his recovery.”
