Some good news for Amy Winehouse for a change.
Blake Fielder-Civil, better known to the tabloid-reading public as the singer's beloved "Blake Incarcerated," was released from Britain's Edmunds Hill Prison today after serving just 12 months of his 27-month sentence for causing grievous bodily harm and obstruction of justice.
Winehouse was not present for her husband's triumphant and premature emergence from the clink, though British media couldn't seem to agree on whether that was because the Grammy winner was holed up at her London home after her second trip to the hospital in as many weeks, or whether she was still in the facility, receiving treatment for an ongoing chest infection.
Her absence did seem to dampen the spirits of her 26-year-old spouse, who began serving time almost a year ago to the day after assaulting a pub owner and then attempting to pay off a witness. He did, however, seem a bit worse for wear.
In addition to a massive grin, Fielder-Civil was sporting red scratches on his arms and a chipped front tooth when he exited the Suffolk facility.
His reunion with the missus will have to wait a bit longer. According to reports, the jailbird was taken directly from prison to a rehab center in Surrey, his admittance apparently a stipulation of his early release.
