Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil has confessed for the first time that got the tragic star hooked to hard drugs.

The 30-year-old was in jail when the 27-year-old pop diva died a year ago after excessive alcohol intake and Fielder-Civil said that he was relieved that an overdose of drugs did not kill her, the Sun reported.

"I was the one who brought drugs into the relationship. When the toxicology results came back, I was relieved there were no drugs in her system," he told the publication.

"I don''t know whether it absolves my guilt or responsibility. But it meant I didn''t kill my ex-wife," he said.

He also said that Winehouse''s downward spiral was her own fault.

He insisted it was not drugs but her boozing that was always the problem.

"It seems disrespectful to Amy to assume she was so impressionable she would take them without making the decision to do so herself. She was actually very strong and independent," he added.

Following his 14-month stretch for burglary and having a firearm, the junkie ended up in hospital from drugs and booze.
