Doherty In Rehab
Singer jets to Portugal to clean up
Pete Doherty has checked himself into rehab in Portugal, according to a Babyshambles source.
Apparently the troubled frontman flew in on Monday, and unlike his previous attempts to get clean, this time it was all his own idea and he is funding the trip himself. According to the unnamed source he will spend the coming weeks detoxing, and will then be fitted with an opiate-suppressing implant.
In an interview with The Word magazine last month, Pete said: "For a little while things were too dark to even begin to get my head around. Spending all my time dropping my trousers to the police. Sat in cells. What I want is a little bit of self-control. But plans are the last thing you want."
