Doherty 'Kicked and Whipped Me' Says Photographer
- Pete was with a woman at the time and it wasn't Kate Moss

Doherty PETE DOHERTY is in trouble with the cops again after being accused of beating up a photographer.

The Babyshambles singer is also likely to be in deeper doo-doo with Kate Moss, as he was with another woman at the time of the alleged incident.

Doherty was staying with a friend in Somerset as part of the terms of his recent drug bust. He is accused of losing it when confronted by a member of the paparazzi while drinking in a pub in sleepy Crewkerne.

"He kicked me and pulled my hair then whipped me with my strap and only stopped when a policeman came," said agency snapper Cath Mead. "Then his girlfriend was hugging me, crying with me and saying Im so sorry. Hes drunk, he really needs help.

That 'girlfriend' has been named as model Irina Lazareanu and her presence in Crewkerne appears to conflict with rumours that Doherty had a kiss-and-make-up session with Moss in Claridge's hotel.

Mead says it was only the intervention of an off-duty policeman that stopped her being further assaulted. She has reported the matter to local police.

For Pete's sake, a brighter rumour doing the rounds is that he will make a surprise appearance at this weekend's Get Loaded festival on Clapham Common, where he could team up with former Libertines comrade Carl Barat.
