London, Sept 16 : Amy Winehouse's incarcerated hubby Blake Fielder-Civil has chosen to stay in prison, despite reports he was offered the chance to move in with his mother while wearing an electronic tag.
Fielder-Civil, who was found guilty of beating up a pub landlord and then attempting to cover it up, was sentenced to 27 months in July.
He served most of the sentence awaiting trial, and was told he could leave Edmunds Hill category C prison in Suffolk if he agreed to the tag and obeyed a 7pm curfew.
Jail bosses also asked him to move into his mother Georgette's house in Nottinghamshire as part of conditions for an early release.
But the 26-year-old allegedly refused the offer because he wanted to return to his home in Camden, north London.
"It was all set for him to be released, but because he refused to go to anywhere other than Camden, it was refused at the last minute," the Sun quoted a source, as saying.
"He doesn't want to go somewhere where he can't be reunited with Amy and his friends. He'd rather stay inside.
"The Prison Service feared he would break his parole if he was surrounded by the temptations of his old stomping ground," she added.
The 'Back To Black' singer, who married Blake in Miami last summer, will have to wait until the original December release date to see her man.
