Update: Amy Winehouse Will Not Be Charged in Alleged Husband Beat-Down

R&B singer Amy Winehouse will face no charges in connection with her husband’s alleged sacking of a London bar man. Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, is accused of attacking pub landlord James King at the Macbeth public house in Hoxton, east London, in June 2006. He is also accused of conspiring to pervert the course of justice by offering Mr King money to withdraw his allegation and leave the country. However, today (Feb. 29) it was announced that Winehouse is no longer a suspect in the case, and no further action will be taken against her. Fielder-Civil pleaded not guilty to both charges at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday. He was remanded in custody until April. A spokesman for the singer said: “Amy is pleased to be discounted from the investigation and thanks the police for their professionalism in their dealings with her.” Grammy Award winner Winehouse, 24, did not attend the court hearing on Friday. Her spokesman said the singer was absent because she was travelling to Paris to perform at a party for fashion designer Louis Vuitton.
