Just two weeks after the one-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse's death, the late singer's ex-husband was rushed to the hospital after a night of heavy drinking and drugging.

On Thursday, The Sun reported that Amy's husband of two years, Blake Civil-Fielder, was taken to the hospital for organ failure and was placed on life support and in a medically-induced coma. Civil-Fielder's girlfriend, Sarah Aspin, with whom he has a 15-month-old-son, told the paper, "The doctors say they don't know the prognosis. They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection."

Upon hearing the sad news, Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, took to his Twitter to send his support for his former son-in-law.

"Terrible news about Blake this morning. Remember Amy loved him. Let's pray for his recovery," Mitch, who lost his "Rehab" singing daughter in July 2011 to accidental alcohol poisoning, tweeted on Thursday.

Amy and Civil-Fielder married in a Miami Beach, FL ceremony on May 18, 2007 and divorced in August 2009. Throughout their marriage, their volatile relationship and reported drug abuse made headlines.

Not everyone was pleased to see Mitch's support. Soon after his remark, he defended himself against Alex Foden, Amy's former hairstylist.

"You are so full of s*** Mitch Winehouse. You basically wish him dead in your book of lies! Anything to get in the papers! You make me sick!" Foden tweeted Thursday.

"Alex you have got to stop this nonsense," Mitch replied. "Is it just me or is Alex Foden going mad?"

"I am not supporting Blake but I am praying for his recovery," Mitch added on Friday.
