Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil used to take undue advantage of the late singer's obsession with him. He used to charge 150 pounds to kiss her, according to a friend.
Blake, now serving a 32-month prison sentence for burglary and possession of an imitation firearm, used the money to buy crack cocaine and heroin, reports thesun.co.uk.
"He'd charge her 150 pounds just to kiss him and get near him. They'd be sitting, having a couple of drinks and she'd be trying to snuggle up to him.
"She'd say, 'Give me a kiss, sailor. He'd go, 'Give me some money then'," said the source, according to whom Winehouse was "totally in love" with Blake.
"...and she'd go, 'Blake, Blake'. He liked her but he didn't love her. She'd pay for him to get cabs. She'd pay 150 pounds for a cab. This was the pattern throughout their relationship," the source added.
According to the source, Winehouse must have paid Blake close to 250,000 pounds. Winehouse, who died in July at age 27, wed Blake in 2007. They divorced two years later.
