Amy Winehouse allegedly stole cocaine from Kate Moss’s handbag, her ex-husband has claimed.
Blake Fielder-Civil said they were partying with the supermodel in New York when Winehouse went into her purse and pocketed two grammes of the drug.
They were mingling with other models and Hollywood stars in a private suite at the city’s Gramercy Park Hotel.
He said: ‘Kate had told Amy to get a $10 note out of her handbag to snort lines with.
And he added that Moss, 35, was ‘so drunk she never noticed it was missing’.
Fielder-Civil, 27, who married Winehouse, 25, in May 2007 but divorced her 11 days ago, also said his ex got addicted to heroin immediately after her first hit of the drug.
He said she first tried the Class A drug during one of their ‘mad nights’ in an east London hotel room in 2006 after watching him take it.
‘We had a bottle of pink champagne and had sex and were lying on the bed talking. I’d been smoking heroin on my own before that but never in front of her,’ he said.
‘I got a bit for myself and she looked at me and said, “can I have some?” I was out of my mind on drugs and I said, “of course”.
‘She inhaled the heroin and then just sat back, smiled, and her eyes went a bit funny.
She said, “I can see why you take this”. Amy took to heroin like a duck to water.’
But Fielder-Civil, who claimed they spent up to ?7,000 a week on drugs, said within a matter of weeks, she was begging him to buy more, before she allegedly moved on to crack cocaine.
Kate Moss was unavailable for comment.
Fielder-Civil was today reported to have been sent back to rehab after failing another drugs test. Failing a test is a breach of his parole terms.
He left prison in February after serving time for assault and trial-fixing.
