Amy Winehouse has given another signal that her marriage is on the rocks, by cozying up in the arms of a new lover recently.
According to sources, the 24-year-old pop diva gazed adoringly at hunky Alex Haynes while her junkie husband Blake Fielder-Civil languished behind bars.
Her friends and management are said to be "over the moon" that she has fallen for 24-year-old Alex, who is her manager's assistant and is described as a "clean-cut mummy's boy" from Gloucestershire.
"It is a relief that it's finally out and they have everyone's 100 per cent backing. Alex is a good boy. He doesn't smoke or take drugs. He isn't a big drinker. Amy has really fallen for him," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
The Rehab singer had tried to keep the couple's month-long romance under wraps for fear of how Blake, 25, would take the news in London's Pentonville prison, where he is remand on trial-fixing charges.
A pal of the star said: "Amy doesn't want the truth coming out because she doesn't want him reading things that will upset him in case he tries to do anything silly in jail.
"She does care about him still and has been trying to be seen to support him through his jail ordeal - but she just doesn't want to be with him any more."
According to sources, the singer is said to have made her decision after a series of late-night heart-to-hearts with Alex.
A source said: "Amy hangs on his every word. He is tough and Blake is scared of him. That has made her feel ready to end it."
