Pete Doherty Jailed For Cocaine Possession
The Libertines singer will now spend six months behind bars...
Pete Doherty has been given a six month jail term for cocaine possession.
The Libertines front-man was handed the sentence following an inquiry into the death of filmmaker, Robyn Whitehead, back in January 2010.
Ms. Whitehead was found dead at a flat in Hackney, East London, while making a documentary on the Can't Stand Me Now singer.
The star, who has previously been jailed twice for drug offences, pleaded guilty to possessing the class A drug, resulting in his six month term behind bars.
Doherty has also addressed his feelings over Robyn's death, stating in a blog post that she was his "best friend."
The 32-year old wrote: "I need to think. I need to explain. I need you to know that these families are torturing themselves in the quest for sinister plots and answers that are not there."
"Robyn's father texted me that I am a 'coward and a runt' and that I am to blame. She talked constantly of her father Peter Whitehead. She worshipped him... She would be broken hearted if she knew that I was not even invited to the funeral."
Pete added: "She was my best friend you deranged old silly. There is no cover up. We are broken, me Alan and Wolfe."
Doherty has been forced to cancel a performance at Glasgow Barrowland this evening after receiving his sentence.
