Pete Doherty is Britain's Lindsay Lohan. They are both once-promising artists/celebrities whose lives went to shit and now they are a shadow of their former selves and fading into obscurity!
Reuters reports that the disheveled Doherty, once known as a member of Babyshambles and The Libertines but now better known as Kate Moss' ex and for his drug habit and looking as though his liver hurts, was warned by a judge on Friday that he could face time in prison for repeated drug offenses.
Doherty, 32, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine at Snaresbrook Crown Court, east London, according to the Press Association.
Judge David Radford described Doherty's criminal record as "unattractive." The judge also reprimanded Doherty's legal representation, saying, "When someone constantly commits the same offense the law must be made very clear. Is your client aware he could face a sentence?"
Doherty was granted unconditional bail and ordered to return to court for sentencing on May 20th, a date when he is due to be touring. He still tours? Seems like he barely even makes music anymore. Guess he'll have to cancel some dates.
