Amy Winehouse Compares Court to Disneyland
June 04, 2008
Amy Winehouse gave her verdict on court Wednesday, announcing aloud as pretrial arguments were going on in her husband's case: "It's like Disneyland."
The 24-year-old singer turned up hours late to Snaresbrook Crown Court in London to support – and flirt with – husband Blake Fielder-Civil. Winehouse arrived just before 3 pm. She wore a houndstooth pencil skirt, a stained turquoise polo shirt, a wide black belt and black peep-toe platform heels.
Fielder-Civil, who spent the first part of the afternoon with his face buried in his right hand, appeared to come to life as his wife arrived. He has been in jail since November, awaiting trial on charges stemming from a pub brawl. Pretrial arguments began Monday, but cannot be reported due to British law.
As they did on Monday, (Winehouse did not appear in court Tuesday) the pair beamed at each other across the courtroom, raising their eyebrows, winking and blowing each other kisses.
At one point, Fielder-Civil motioned to his lawyer, who brought him paper and pen, apparently to write Winehouse a note. After the court usher shook his head no, the lawyer only whispered to Winehouse, but did not pass her the note.
The singer got up and left after about a half hour. She was unsteady on her feet and whispered "f--- you" as she left.
