Did the late singer struggle with love addiction in addition to her battle with drugs?
Poor Amy Winehouse. Although the autopsy for 27-year-old British singer is still incomplete, we do know that she died alone in her bed, leaving many to suspect that a deadly mix of drugs and alcohol may be to blame for her death.
However, in a new twist to this sad story, we've now learned from HollywoodLife.com that Amy's boyfriend, director Reg Traviss, had dumped her a mere month before she passed away, which may explain why Reg has remained silent about her death, while her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil has released a statement, claiming that the news of his ex-wife's death has left him shattered.

"Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love. I can't believe she's dead," said the 29-year-old former addict, who is currently serving time in prison, reports The Sun.
Blake's relationship with Amy was, by all accounts, intense. Just a month after meeting him in 2005, Amy had tattooed his name across her heart. The couple married in 2007, but their mutual addictions eventually tore them apart, leading them to divorce in 2009.
Still, according to Blake's fiance, Sarah Aspin, whom he met and had a son with after breaking up with the singer, the couple always loved each other.
"She always loved him and he always loved her — but it was just never going to work."
"Basically they couldn't live with each other and they could not live without each other. It is hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand his feelings," said Sarah to the newspaper. "I think Amy could not get over the fact that Blake and I had had our son Jack. I think it hit her pretty hard." Amy Winehouse's Ex-Husband: "I Watched Her Die In My Arms"
Add Amy's recent breakup with Reg to that emotional turmoil, and it seems reasonable that the singer may have been in a sad, dark place in the weeks leading up to her death.
"Being loved by a man and being in a committed relationship was clearly very important to Amy. Losing that made her feel abandoned, lost and like a failure," said relationship expert Cooper Lawrence.
And although officials are more likely to find drugs than an excess of heart-ache when they finish Amy's autopsy, it's possible that Amy's love addiction and failed relationships could have played a significant role in her death as well.
