(Newser) – Walking disaster Amy Winehouse canceled all remaining tour dates for the rest of the year, for what her label is calling "health issues." The singer says she can't perform while husband Blake Fielder-Civil is in prison. "I can't give it my all without my Blake," she said. "I don't want to do the shows half-heartedly; I love singing."

Winehouse's husband will be in prison until at least mid-January when he faces a hearing to determine whether he'll stand trial for tampering with a witness in an assault case against him. Winehouse, whose performances have grown increasingly erratic, was hospitalized this summer reportedly near death after downing a drug cocktail of cocaine, ketamine and ecstasy. Her album Back to Black is the biggest seller in Britain this year.
