Pete: Kate kept me off drugs..
Rocker Pete Doherty was determined to beat his drug addiction because his loved ones had "had enough" with his wild ways. The Babyshambles frontman - who is in a longterm relationship with supermodel Kate Moss - was attending a review of his drug treatment order at Thames Magistrates' Court in east London this morning (18Apr07) when he revealed he had been given an ultimatum by his friends and family to stay off drugs or be forced to choose between the two. He told the court, "The people I'm closest to have had enough. They've said it's drugs or them. A lot has changed in the past week." Presiding over the case, District Judge Jane MCIvor praised Doherty for his co-operation and replied, "It's a hard road, isn't it? It's not easy. All we can do is provide the network. You have to do all the hard work." Doherty was ordered to undergo a treatment programme following his arrest for possession of drugs in April last year (06).
