|Pete Doherty Puts Implant First|
- Singer set to miss Kate Moss's fashion launch for drug treatment
Pete Doherty is set to miss the launch of fiancée Kate Moss' new fashion range because he is having a new implant fitted to help him quit drugs.
The Babyshambles frontman, who has battled heroin and cocaine addictions, will return to a Midlands clinic today (30.04.07) to receive a new implant to help beat drugs.
Kate is due to appear in Topshop's flagship store in London's Oxford Street to promote her new fashion line tomorrow (01.05.07).
A friend of Pete's said: "Pete hopes this new implant will help him quit for good."
The implant, a pellet containing naltrexone, will be inserted under the skin of Pete's stomach.
The 28-year-old rocker won't be alone for the procedure. The couple's cat Dinger - slang for syringe - recently gave birth to five kittens, and the singer has apparently been taking them everywhere with him.
Meanwhile, Kate and Pete have been slammed for encouraging young people to smoke.
Anti-smoking charity Ash fumed: "Kids still see smoking as cool and that is down to role models."
Kate, 33, recently splashed out £4,000 on a pro-smoking piece of artwork for her London home.
The piece, called 'Smoking Kills', features 'Liar Liar' star Jennifer Tilly smoking next to dozens of cigarette packets.
