According to multiple British tabloids, Amy Winehouse has been secretly keeping in contact with her former husband and druggie-in-crime Blake Fielder-Civil through a recently activated Facebook account under the handle "Shirley," the name of her pet cat.
Proving to be yet another example of the many break-up and moving-on challenges in a socially-networked world, "the pair have been messaging each other with rhymes and ramblings," according to OK Magazine. 20 Relationships And Technology Dos And Don'ts
...Shirley has posted several status updates, including one in which she says she loves "Sailor," a known nickname Amy has for her ex.
Blake Incarcerated (yeah, that's another pet name, but not one of Amy's) has an evolving relationship status on his profile, starting with the "single" declaration when he first joined. He's since switched to "it's complicated," and now it supposedly says "married."
One of Shirley's other posts purrs, "Sailor, sort it you're her co-hort. consort still. as you both know you're unswerving. just as much as you're deserving."
So why "in secret?" After all, they've already been granted a provisional divorce last month. Is it because the legal split won't be finalized until August 28th? Or that Fielder-Civil is still in rehab? Only time will tell. Or not—we may never understand the intricacies of Amy Winehouse's mind. And that is A-OK.
