(Newser) – Amy Winehouse has convinced rehabbing hubby Blake Fielder-Civil to rekindle their relationship, the News of the World reports. "I love her as much as ever. I know she still loves me," says Blake, who agreed to a dinner date when he gets out of rehab. "Maybe this time we can do everything properly and not mess it up." But she wants him to call off the divorce, and he says no-no-no.

Blake says he hopes to remarry after their lawyers split up Amy's $16-million fortune in court. "He hopes by divorcing it will give her the chance to pull herself together," says a pal. Amy's parents will likely oppose the reunion because they blame Blake for hooking her on crack and heroin, but "it's not up to Amy's family or anyone else," Blake says. "We're both adults and we're both clean now."
