Amy Winehouse is taking Blake Fielder-Civil to Cuba.
The 'Rehab' singer - who recently reconciled with Blake after they divorced in August last year - has reportedly decided to mark their reunion with a romantic trip to Havana for when his court ordered curfew is over, to celebrate their new-found passion for cigar smoking.
A friend told The Sun newspaper: "Smoking cigars is their new thing. It all started when Amy bought a pack of Romeo y Julieta for Blake, because she thinks they're also tragic lovers. Amy and Blake have been spending their time reading up on the history and the culture behind them and followed it to Cuba. She thinks there's a kind of romance to it and would love to go there with Blake."
Blake was released from jail last February after serving time for assault and trial-fixing but had been ordered to remain in Sheffield , North England, to complete drug rehab treatment.
The friend continued: "She wants to go away to celebrate them being back together properly. It will be their 'second honeymoon'. As soon as his curfew allows, they'll be off."
The 26-year-old star - who recently bought a new London home to live in with Blake when his curfew comes to an end - has also commissioned artist and Soho club owner Sam Shaker to paint a picture of them together to mark their reunion.
Sam, who has previously done paintings for the singer's family, said: "She said she loved the paintings and gave me more pictures, including one of her with Blake. When they came to see them she took Blake by the hand and showed him the paintings. He said they were beautiful."
