(Newser) – Amy Winehouse's funeral was today, and ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil was not granted prison leave in order to attend, the Sun reports. Nor will Fielder-Civil get anything from Winehouse, a source tells the Daily Mail: Winehouse reportedly left him out of her will to ensure he won't get a penny of her estimated $16 million fortune. Legal experts say her divorced parents and older brother will split the estate.

Attending Winehouse's funeral today were pals Mark Ronson and Kelly Osbourne, as well as most recent boyfriend Reg Traviss. "I can't describe what I am going through," Traviss told the Sun before the funeral, calling Winehouse his "dear love." Adele, who was influenced by Winehouse, also blogged a tribute to the singer who "paved the way for artists like me." Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that Microsoft UK is apologizing after tweeting in poor taste: “Remember Amy Winehouse by downloading the ground-breaking ‘Back to Black’ over at Zune."
