So Pete Doherty, not even a week out of the Priory rehab facility in North London, was seen yesterday around lunchtime buying two syringes at a drugstore in Dublin, Ireland, where his band had been performing. He pocketed the bag of spikes in his suit jacket as he left the shop and headed back to the hotel where girlfriend Kate Moss was waiting. (Hmm, isn’t she supposed to be staying with the band on the tour bus? So is it bus or hotel? Is this item about the syringes even true?) But in all fairness, Doherty does use the syringes to make his blood art, so let’s not make the easy leap to blackened spoons.
Meanwhile, it’s said that teenage girls have been flocking to the Priory, enrolling as outpatients and complaining of anxiety, just for a chance to run into Doherty. “Pete has even visited some of the girls and helped them write poems,” says a source at the clinic. “They are hooked on his every word. They think being in rehab is cool.” (The Sun)
