Doherty in Bloody Brawl Shocker!
We're sure there are more romantic things to be doing in Rome, Pete...
Bloody Pete Doherty, eh? No, we mean, really bloody.
The Babyshambles tyke was involved in a ruckus with an Italian snapper after the band's gig in Rome on Monday night (October 23) and has been papped covered in blood.
Pete claims the pap started it by cracking him over the head with his camera, then shoving it in his face.
But keen to downplay the fight, Pete joked, "We had a bloody good gig and then a good scrap when we got back to the hotel. All in all a good night."
The man with the cam says it was all Doherty's doing though and has threatened to take action against the singer.
Pete's spokesperson has now released a statement saying, Pete totally denies that he instigated a fight with a photographer.
Reports that that the photographer might make an official complaint will certainly interest Petes lawyers.
Fortunately Kate was at home in London, having a nice cup of tea no doubt, while the punches were flying...
