Doperty Almost Died Last Month, He Reveals

Did you guys know that Doperty is immortal????

Who would have guessed????

The Babyshambles frontman cancelled a slew of shows back in October due to "exhaustion", but Pete recently revealed to reporters the true reason for the cancellation - his heart stopped!!!!

Doperty swears up and down that drugs weren't the cause, but explains the situation as: "I was running into the walls, making steering wheel signs with my hands. And then I just… stopped. My body just stopped."

After an overnight stay in the hospital, the formerly (ha!) drugged-out singer was as good as new, and returned home to rest.

Kudos on dodging death!

    Perhaps he can try again.



  2. 2

    He was trying to drive the get-away car to escape himself.

    Crackheads are a dime a dozen!!!

    Ah, but tomorrow is another day.

    Western decadence writ large. Some poor folks are squatting in refugee camps after having walked miles with their children to get there, fleeing conflict zones. They are fighting to stay alive and provide for their kids.

    But Mr. Doherty sees drug abuse as a choice, as recreation, and he pisses his talents and resources away. I won't shed a tear if he goes at his own hand.

    Talentless, starfucking nobody. As if anyone would give a fuck if his heart didnt get going again



  6. 6

    who is this?

    Re: mickeydeee – He's in a shit band called Babyshambles, who suddenly got famous even though they suck, because he started fucking Kate Moss….kinda why Beth Ditto is famous, she had her picture taken with Kate once….now she's everywhere

    Re: mickeydeee – you mean who the fuck is this!!!!!!!!! :o )



  9. 9

    So now they're even ADMITTING that anytime a publicist uses the phrase "Exhaustion" it's a lie.



  10. 10

    trully the most overated musician in history, the libertines were crap and babyshables are pathetic, i know this sounds cold, but hurry up and die im so completely bored with this nobhead, OD already or are you gonna fail in every aspect of your silly career and live forever, have the courage of your convictions and shoot heroin straight into your eyeball…a bit harsh yeah? but fuck him and the twats who give him the publicity of oxygen, would it have killed you perez to not have posted about this waste of skin, let him fade away into nothingness like he deserves.



  11. 11

    Kate liked him because he scored good stuff , but really. I can smell him from here. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwr !



  12. 12

    Waste of space!



  13. 13

    WTF is the "steering wheel sign"? Sounds like something right out of the Village People's "YMCA." If Petey boy was pretending he was holding a steering wheel in his hands then I THINK he has more problems than just his heart.



  14. 14

    I still love you forever

    LOL = you're heart doesn't stop from "exhaustion". Just ask any mother or hard worker. Those who don't do drugs to near oblivion. Your heart stops because you did something to it. Most likely an overdose, or the constant use of drugs. What a douche!



  16. 16

    who cares…his music is spiraling down anyway!

    Yeah because now that I am sober I run into walls pretending to be a car all the time.
    —————————————————————-
    Of note, there is one sweet spot on the chest, if hit when the heart is in the correct phase of pumping can cause sudden cardiac death. It has been know to happen to athletes.
    In this case however, get a better story dude, we addicts are supposed to be better at lying.



  18. 18

    Hey Pete,
    IF you're addicted; get clean. I would hate to read your name in in the OBIT'S.
    You have a lot to live for.



  19. 19

    This guy is teetering on the brink. If he get's clean now, he will still have to deal with the fact that dope has already taken some toll on his health but he will be able to salvage what he's got and have a decent life if he really puts forth some effort. If he keeps using, well, he'll die inevitably. Your clock is ticking baby!



  20. 20

    is that blood on his face again? he is truely disgusting. a sweaty, greasy, drug ridden piece of crap.



  21. 21

    depressing as always. His music is deteriorating with his spiraling drug use. I still enjoy listening to the solo stuff he's been working on but I miss the Libertines level of work.

    It's sad when I hit the point of checking up..not for a new album…but to see if he'd died yet.

    Substances can serve as bad substitute for good food. Your heart can stop merely from a lack of potassium. Eat your food groups, kiddies.



  23. 23

    Drink water!



  24. 24

    Cardiac arrest and only an overnight stay? Must be some hospital.



  25. 25

    Re: boboslammin
    Yeah, he'll die just like Keith Richards and Bob Dylan



  26. 26

    How in the world could she be engaged to this vile looking creature? Twice, at that! Gross!!!



  27. 27

    Re: Shit on a Shingle – I'd say because, despite his propensities towards self-destruction, by all estimation Pete Doherty as a person is rather endearing, enigmatic and considerate.

    I still wouldn't touch him without a sterilized seven foot pole but I can't make fun of his addiction either. At the end of the day, the person he is hurting most is still himself and that's not worth laughing at.



  28. 28

    does he always have to look like hell? Why can't he ever look decent? eewww…. take a shower, brush your teeth. damn!



  29. 29

    Pete is so cute. and a genius.
    he just needs to get his life together.
    leave him alone.



  30. 30

    HANDSOME!



  31. 31

    Awh poor ickle Petie. Trying to get hold of some Babyshambles tickets but I'm so poor right now.



  32. 32

    oh please, of course it was drugs!

    Even if he stopped USING TODAY the DAMAGE is done.
    He will go into Cardiac Arrest AGAIN most likely within a yr.
    He might as well just use to death b/c of he does go off, the trama to his valves is done. MD's wont give him a pacer either due to drug use. he is screwed



  34. 34

    theres something attractive about him, it's kind of gross though…



  35. 35

    ur high in this photo u disgusting crackhead!! wastecase



  36. 36

    You know what, I'll be the only person sticking up for him.
    I love Babyshambles AND the Libertines AND Pete on his own.

    Stop being so bloody nasty?
    Just because you twats don't like him dosen't mean he should go die.
    If thats the case why dont YOU all go die.

    Nasty bitches.

    Disgusting to make light of a serious illness that someone can't control. Wishing someone dead is a disgrace, what has he done to anyone apart from making the music he loves. If he wants to take drugs, let him take drugs.
    He's not famous because of Kate Moss by the way, the Libs and Babyshambles became a LOT more mainstream when he started dating her. There are many who knew him and loved him before he had a model on his arm.
    He is talented, if you bothered to take an interest.
    Look him up, see how he was voted one of the best young poets in the UK by the time he was 16.
    Fools.
    A note to Perez and his team, spell his name correctly. Have the tiniest amount of decency for a person.



  38. 38

    i think he's a vampire



  39. 39

    maybe he souldn't have dodged the bullet. what a prick
