Babyshambles and ex-Libertines frontman Pete Doherty is at it again. This time, he was reportedly spotted in a drug store in Dublin shopping for syringes -- just three days after getting out of yet another stint in rehab.
Indeed, his first few days back in society proved to be eventful. The Daily Mirror also released a report saying that Doherty, 27, would begin designing and modeling clothes for hip Manchester label Gio-Goi. Gio-Goi co-founder Anthony Donnelly would neither confirm nor deny the deal, saying that his company would soon be holding a news conference and that "it's going to be a beautiful week next week."
Gio-Goi has dressed the likes of The Rolling Stones and New Order in the past. The label was a favorite amongst ravers in the 1990s, and enjoyed a recent resurgence thanks to clients like Doherty and Arctic Monkeys.
It was also a good week for Doherty's on-again, off-again galpal Kate Moss, who just inked a deal to design clothing and accessories for Topshop. Moss accompanied Doherty to Dublin, sang alongside him during a Babyshambles show, and left him so smitten that he was talking about marriage.
But Moss isn't the only one who likes a bad boy. Reports surfaced that some of Doherty's fans were admitting themselves to rehab just to get some personal time with the star.
"They are hooked on his every word," said a source at the Priory Clinic. "It's frightening. They think being in rehab is cool…it's not."
