Amy Winehouse's alleged lover has left her management team for taking drugs.
Alex Haines, who has reportedly been romancing the troubled singer while her husband Blake Fielder-Civil is in prison on remand, is believed to have resigned after video footage emerged of him apparently smoking crack cocaine.
A source revealed to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "There's no mistaking from looking at the film that he was taking drugs. It was a shock to everyone.
"Metropolitan management asked him to resign. The last thing Amy needs hanging around her are more users. Alex was supposed to help her and he crossed the line. He had to go."
A Metropolis spokesperson confirmed: "We can confirm that Alex Haines is no longer working for Metropolis or Amy Winehouse."
Reports emerged last month that the 'Rehab' singer was planning to divorce Blake, who is currently awaiting trial on charges of perverting the course of justice and grievous bodily harm (GBH), to start a new life with Alex.
Meanwhile, a team of locksmiths have been sent to Amy's house to change her locks while she is out of the country, to ensure nobody can get in.
