Pete 'pawned' Kate's stuff..
Pete Doherty tried to pay off a £250 taxi fare by offering fiancé Kate Moss's belongings to the cab driver.A report in the Mirror claims that the troubled singer, who has recently been arrested once again on suspicion of possessing class A drugs, ran out of petrol in Camden and got a taxi to Kate Moss's home in St John's Wood.But the taxi driver then explained to the paper that Pete, 28, then came flying out of Kate's flat clutching a suitcase, an empty picture frame and a guitar, while a furious Kate hurled a glass at him.The cab driver, Roland Andrews, said Pete then told him to drive to Kate's second home in the Cotswolds, explaining that he had "women trouble"."I've messed up my life. I've messed up with everyone around me," said Pete, according to Mr Andrews.When they arrived in the Cotswolds Pete said he only had £100 on him, but that Mr Andrews should phone his accountant to get the remaining money. The taxi driver said: "He asked me to help him unload his stuff into Kate's house and then he said, 'If there's anything here you want then help yourself to it. The missus won't mind'."But he added that while he didn't take Pete up on the offer, when he rang Pete's accountant, he was told he knew nothing of the missing £150.
