Winehouse Divorced After Admitting Affair

AMY WINEHOUSE faces paying her ex-husband BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL $3.6 million (£2.4 million) as a divorce settlement - after she admitted cheating on him during their marriage.
The Back to Black hitmaker's two-year union with Fielder-Civil was ended at London's High Court on Thursday (16Jul09) when a judge granted the couple a decree nisi.
It means if no further evidence is submitted to the court within the next six weeks, their divorce will be formally rubber-stamped.
Fielder-Civil filed for divorce in January (09), citing Winehouse's adultery after he saw pictures of her cavorting with another man on holiday in St Lucia.
And after Thursday's hearing, it emerged Winehouse had confessed to cheating on her husband - eight months before the divorce petition was lodged.
In court papers, Fielder-Civil is asked to outline his reasons for the divorce, and states: "The respondent confessed the adultery to me in April 2008."
In a separate document, Winehouse is asked: "Do you admit the adultery alleged in the petition?", and answers: "Yes."
No name is given for the person she had an affair with.
Fielder-Civil, who now lives in Nottinghamshire, England, also states he finds it "intolerable" living with the singer, and they have not shared a home since April 2008.
Winehouse, who has an estimated $15 million (£10 million) fortune, has agreed to pay for the cost of the divorce proceedings.
