Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil will not succeed in his effort to divorce the singer, she has claimed.

The former studio runner - still serving a prison sentence for assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice - last week instructed his solicitor to file for divorce from the Back to Black star.

"I can confirm that I have been instructed to commence divorce proceedings on the grounds of Amy's adultery," said a statement from Fielder-Civil's lawyer Henri Bradman.

But according to the Sun newspaper, 25-year-old Winehouse will fight her husband's attempt to end their marriage.

"I still love my Blake. I won't let him divorce me," she is quoted by the tabloid as saying.

However, Winehouse explained recent photographs of her with actor Josh Bowman in the Caribbean resort of St Lucia by saying she still wants to have "some fun" and a "good time".

"Blake is the male version of me. We're perfect for each other. I don't want to go back home to England. I want to wait for Blake here," she reportedly told the Sun.

"Josh was lovely. But it was a holiday thing. I've got my Blake."

Despite Winehouse's remarks, Fielder-Civil's family are keen for the marriage to come to an end, with his mother Georgette last week telling People: "It will go through this time, it will go ahead."

The pair were married in Miami in May 2007 but their relationship has suffered a series of high-profile problems.

Fielder-Civil was arrested in November 2007 over helping to beat up a pub landlord and then trying to buy his silence. As a result he was sentenced to 27 months in prison.

Winehouse, meanwhile, has suffered a series of health scares related to her alleged drug addiction.
