Doherty Still A Drug Addict

Subscribe to Pete Doherty alerts

Troubled rocker Pete Doherty's claim he has kicked his drug addictions is false, according to British media reports.

The Babyshambles frontman, who is dating supermodel Kate Moss, smoked crack in front of a journalist following a performance at last month's (28MAY05) Homelands festival in Hampshire, England, according to UK music weekly the NME.

Before the interview, Doherty allegedly had an argument with his manager JAMES MULLORD who he believed had hidden his crack pipe. Doherty screamed at Mullord, "I know you've got it!"

Doherty then ignored his manager's attempts to cultivate an improved public image for his client, and hastily constructed an impromptu replacement pipe and proceeded to smoke crack in front of the NME journalist.

A fresh argument reportedly erupted, with Mullord questioning the integrity of Doherty's decision to display his drug habit in front of the press.

The former LIBERTINE previously claimed had made a fresh start since falling in love with Moss, and had turned his back on his drug-fuelled past.
