LONDON – Singer Amy Winehouse looked on tearfully Saturday as a British judge ordered her husband held on charges stemming from a case in which he is accused of assaulting a barman in June.
Winehouse watched from the gallery in Thames Magistrates' Court in London as her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, was ordered held in custody until Nov. 23.
According to the charges read out in court, Fielder-Civil conspired with the alleged victim of the assault, persuading him to withdraw as a witness at the trial, which was to begin Monday.
Anthony Kelly, 25, also was ordered held in custody, accused of assisting Fielder-Civil.
Kelly and Fielder-Civil are among five men arrested in relation to the assault case.
Fielder-Civil and Michael Brown, 39, face charges of assaulting the barman on June 20.
Retro soul singer Winehouse has won worldwide acclaim for her second album, "Back to Black," but has also made headlines through erratic behavior, health fears and reports of heavy drug use. In August she spent time in rehab and canceled a series of dates in Britain, the United States and Canada.
Last month Winehouse and Fielder-Civil were arrested in Norway and fined $715 for possession of marijuana.
