Amy Winehouse has confessed she is bisexual.

The 'Back to Black' singer - who married Blake Fielder-Civil in May 2007 but got divorced in August 2009, after Blake filed for divorce on grounds of adultery - reportedly told a friend she has had relationships with women as well as men.

The 26-year-old star revealed to the pal: "So what? I like girls as well. I have had relationships with other women but that doesn't mean I don't still love Blake. There is something about being with a woman that is very satisfying. I don't care what people think about me being bi - I do what feels good."

Speaking with Amy's consent the friend told the News of the World newspaper that Amy has feelings for other women and has a crush on Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole.

She said: "There is nothing restrained about Amy's sexuality. She doesn't hold back and says what she feels. She often talks about other women. Her favourite is Cheryl, who she really fancies. Most women can appreciate another woman's beauty but Amy definitely takes that to the next level."

Despite being bisexual, those close to Amy still believe she end up reconciling with Blake, 27.

The source said: "Right now, she's absolutely devastated. She's had a horrible few days and doesn't know what to do. Whether she's deluded or not, Amy genuinely believes her and Blake are a fairytale who will end up together one day."
