TROUBLED singer Amy Winehouse today failed to show up to see her husband deny plotting to pervert the course of justice following his arrest for assault.
Blake Fielder-Civil, 25, repeatedly cast longing looks towards the doors for the 24-year-old Back To Black singer during his latest court appearance.
He stands accused alongside Hatfield man James Kennedy.
But Amy, who had attended all of her jailbird husband's court appearances so far, did not grace today's proceedings with her presence.
Fielder-Civil was allegedly involved in a brawl at the Macbeth pub, in trendy Hoxton which left James King, 36, needing medical treatment.
The music video assistant, who wore a grey sweatshirt, denies causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Mr King on June 20 last year.
And today he denied conspiring with alleged victim Mr King to pervert the course of justice when he appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court.
Michael Brown, 39, of Durand Close, Carshalton, Surrey, James King, of The White House, Risley Hall, Risley, Derbyshire, and Anthony Kelly, 25, of Constable House, Chalk Farm, have already denied conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
Brown has pleaded not guilty to the assault charge.
Jeremy Dein, QC, for Fielder-Civil, appealed to the media to temper 'sensational' reporting of the case.
But Judge David Radford said reports he read emanated from sources close to the defendant.
The judge said: 'It would be useful for those who may be connected to your client, not to fuel that publicity by saying what they might do about various things connected with this case.'
A fifth defendant, James Kennedy, 19, of The Holdings, Hatfield also denied conspiring to pervert the course of justice today .
Kennedy, who is out on bail while the others were remanded in custody, had a condition that prevented him travelling within the M25 lifted.
The court heard that Kennedy worked in construction with his father and granted him permission to come as far as London's North and South Circular roads.
Winehouse started dating Fielder-Civil two years ago and they married in a low key ceremony in Miami in May last year.
Judge Radford has set a trial date for June 2 this year with another pre-trial hearing has been set for April 25.
