Amy's love Reg Traviss: 'I have lost my darling'

Tuesday July 26, 2011

Three days after her untimely passing, Amy Winehouse's on-and-off boyfriend Reg Traviss has finally spoken out.

He had been seen mourning outside the late singer's home with her family but until now was too distraught to make a statement.

The 35-year-old told the Sun: "The last three days have been hell.

"We have suffered a terrible untimely loss and want peace now.

"I can't describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love.

"I have lost my darling who I loved very much."

After Amy's tumultuous relationship with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, the Winehouses welcomed Reg into the family with open arms.

The two often stayed out of the limelight and the 27-year-old's romance with Reg seemed to be a hugely positive aspect in her life.

Blake is currently serving time in jail and is allegedly absent from the Back to Black singer's will.
