Pete Doherty, 43, has broken up for his notorious romance with supermodel Kate Moss – claiming he’s actually gone astray after falling in love with one’s mother.
The star recalled a time in the late ’00s that saw him allegedly having an affair with Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood and being kicked off Sadie Frost’s yacht for smoking drugs, after falling in love with Kate and having a tumultuous relationship.
Pete also claims his ex-girlfriend tried to get him to stop using heroin during their time together, but was unsuccessful in her efforts.
The Libertines singer said he was “quite devastated” before meeting the iconic model, 48, at her 31st birthday party in 2005, but it became a “completely new thing”. when he is famous all over the world.
In his new memoir, A Lillions Lad, the British singer recalls coming to a birthday party at Kate’s Cotswolds mansion – where she performed – with a shoebox full of drugs and a couple of some “random celebrity”.
Although some rich and famous weren’t too pleased to see Pete – including Kate’s daughter’s father, Jefferson Hack – the Babyshambles singer caught the birthday girl’s eye.
“I remember thinking, ‘Well, here’s a little bit of me, the big country house with the pool and fancy rugs and weird artwork,’ and this girl I’m in love with,” Pete recounts in his new book, According to The Sun.
He went on to explain how the loving couple got matching tattoos within a week of meeting, and Kate also invited him to move into her lavish mansion.
However, things don’t always go smoothly – with Pete struggling with a drug addiction that has caused many problems for the couple during their time together.
Pete claims Kate was appalled by his scuffles with the law – including his time spent in prison in Pentonville, North London, for robbery and extortion following an incident with a old friend.
These costs are then reduced.
The father of two also admitted to selling stories involving Kate to the press, claiming he did so to raise funds to settle his drug debts and legal fees.
“It was really the next two-and-a-half year war, drugs and her obsession with the tabloids and her image,” he wrote in A Lilions Lad.
“Kate’s important thing is ‘don’t marry her for ac****. That’s her favorite expression.”
When Kate and Pete were arrested with what appeared to be cocaine in a recording studio in September 2005, the model accused her then-boyfriend of selling the photos to the press.
“She said, ‘If you’re not selling the pictures, how are they going to get in the newspapers? “” Pete recalls in his book.
“And I can’t say. I’m just guessing that a friend of mine must have done it.”
Pete and Kate dated continuously from 2005 to 2007 – even holding a ‘wedding ceremony’ in Thailand at one point during their affair.
Recalling the crazier times in their relationship, Pete writes in his memoir about how the couple lost their car in Ibiza and had to walk to a party in the dark – after the The singer accidentally drove the car off a cliff.
The What a Waster singer – who got married in France last year – also claimed he had a scuffle with Rolling Stone singer Ronnie Wood while Kate slept, as well as accusing him of kicking off from Sadie Frost’s yacht due to being caught on board. .
At one point in their relationship, Kate apparently asked Pete for an implant of naltrexone – used to reduce the effects of heroin – but it didn’t stop the singer from using it.
In his memoirs, Pete claims using the implant “made me raise my head right away”.
After Kate’s time in rehab in Arizona in 2005 – and Pete’s inability to be clean – the couple broke up.
At the time, Kate released a public statement, telling fans: “I take full responsibility for my actions. I also accept that there are personal issues that I need to deal with. and have begun to take the difficult but necessary steps to address them.”
They soon reunited – asking a friend to help them meet in secret – and in October 2006 they were engaged.
The notorious couple even held an “almost wedding” on a beach in Thailand in January 2007 – with Sir David Tang and Sarah Ferguson unusual holiday partners for the rock and roll couple.
Despite the ceremony – which saw them wrap snakes around each other’s necks – it was not a happy time for the ‘newlyweds’, having Pete go AWOL and end up getting arrested for doing drugs on island.
“Kate and David Tang came to bail me out of the police station, and I was so confused, I called Kate pr**k and did a flying kick at her, then ran down the high street speed,” Pete recalls in his book.
“Next thing I woke up at Heathrow in a pair of Thai police shorts – not even my passport.”
Kate and Pete finally went their separate ways the following year, both falling in love and settling into new partners.
