Amy Winehouse has fled to the Caribbean after being told she could not play a surprise concert for her husband in jail.
The 'Rehab' singer - who was left heartbroken when bosses at Pentonville Prison refused to let her treat husband Blake Fielder-Civil to a New Year's Eve gig - has jetted away for some much need rest and relaxation.
A source told Britain's News of the World Newspaper: "Amy was desperate to see Blake for New Year's. When she was refused she decided it was time to get away.
"She's been under so much stress recently and she really needed a break.
"Blake's situation has been driving her mad. It's going to be hard, but she's got to switch off."
Amy flew to Barbados on Friday (28.12.07) where she stayed in a three-star hotel before flying on to the private island of Mustique where friends claim she is staying at Bryan Adams' villa.
A passenger who shared the Brit Award winning singer's flight to Barbados said: "Amy was dressed in black with no make-up on and her big hair was all over the place.
"She sipped two cups of tea throughout the entire flight and didn't have a bite to eat.
"She never touched a drop of alcohol either."
Blake is on remand for charges of assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
