Pete Doherty on Heroin in Wormwood Scrubs


Prisoner testimony looks bad for singer and detox unit

Pete Doherty on Heroin in Wormwood Scrubs.

BANGED-UP Pete Doherty is back on smack, according to another inmate of Wormwood Scrubs.

Doherty is in the detox unit at the north London prison, but fellow prisoners say that hasn't stopped him sourcing heroin and paying for it with hand-written IOU notes.

"He usually signs his name next to a scribbled smiley face with a trilby," one Scrubs prisoner told The Sun. "They put him inside to force him to give up but Pete always has a need to feed his habit."

The Sun has obtained pictures taken by an inmate of the Babyshambles singer apparently shooting up.

Doherty is in gaol for three months for breaking a probation order by missing therapy sessions. He is expected to be moved to an open prison within the next fortnight.

This guy has serious problems... I wonder how is he handling his health, snorting cocaine is not something to joke about. If I were him I would be worried about that and try fixing my problem in a drug rehab center.

With the amount of lenience that the court system gives to rock and movie starts you would think that they would use it to their advantage. I was hoping that his little stint in the joint would help to get his life together but I see that all it has done is give him more resources to the drugs he was using and he is using his fame to get them for free. What do his parents think and what are they doing to help?
