Amy Winehouse, Pete Doherty


Looks like the British media weren't the only ones suspicious of Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty's palling around.

Winehouse's incarcerated hubby, Blake Fielder-Civil, apparently was, too. And as a British court heard today, he was willing to put his money where his suspicions were.

A recently freed inmate from Pentonville Prison, where Fielder-Civil is currently locked up, testified in a separate case that he was offered roughly $40,000 by the Winehouse's jealous mister to "smash to pieces" the Babyshambles rocker.

Richard Lyttle testified in Old Bailey Court Monday that Fielder-Civil made known "he would give £20,000 to anyone who done him—cause him injury—he was quite annoyed at the time," after hearing that Doherty had paid a visit to Winehouse's Camden home in the early morning hours.

When attorney Sir Desmond de Silva asked whether Fielder-Civil suspected infidelity, Lyttle replied, "Yeah."

"Did he say 'smash him to pieces'?" the lawyers asked.

"That's what he said," Lyttle answered.

Lyttle made the damning revelation while testifying in the unconnected murder trial of two men. He claimed he befriended Fielder-Civil during their overlapping sentences, but admitted that he attempted to sell the story to the British tabloids for $10,000.

In addition to the Babyshambles beatdown, Fielder-Civil also allegedly disclosed, per Lyttle, that he had received several threats behind bars that there was a plot to abduct Winehouse.

Fielder-Civil pleaded guilty last week to causing grievous bodily injury and perverting the course of justice in his witness-tampering trial. He remains jailed pending sentencing on the charges.

Winehouse, meanwhile, is currently undergoing tests in a London hospital after suffering a brief fainting spell at her home earlier today.
