Amy Winehouse's Husband Ordered Back to Prison
Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil is being sent back to prison, just one month after he was released into rehab, his lawyer confirms to PEOPLE.
"I can confirm he has been recalled," says Fielder-Civil's lawyer Kate Anderson, declining to state the reason. (A source close to Fielder-Civil tells PEOPLE that he failed a drug test.)
The 26-year-old – who was sentenced to 27 months on charges of assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice – had been in rehab as part of his early release from jail.
Anderson tells PEOPLE that "the position on recall is that you then serve the remainder of the sentence" – meaning Fielder-Civil would remain in jail until 2010.
The U.K.'s Sun newspaper also reports that Fielder-Civil ran away from the rehab facility Tuesday night to visit his estranged wife.
Winehouse, 25, remains hospitalized in London as part of her ongoing treatment, her rep told PEOPLE earlier this week.
Fielder-Civil "turned up in hospital and hell broke loose," according to The Sun's source. "He was asking Amy to forgive him."
Winehouse and Fielder-Civil wed in Miami in 2007. The "Rehab" singer dedicated this year's Grammy wins to "my Blake, my Blake incarcerated."
But the singer had not visited her husband since his November release.
Just last weekend, Fielder-Civil hinted to the News of the World that he was ready to end their union. "I have to let her go to save her life."
