Pete Doherty To Be Jailed For Six Months

Doherty Gets 6 Months In Jail

Whomp whomp!

This is what happens when you carry a bunch of cocaine on you!

British rocker Pete Doherty has just been jailed on Friday for six months for that very reason. He's been having a lot of issues with drugs over the past decade and has collected himself a lot of drug offenses to go with it.

He pleaded guilty last month, and was sentenced today.

The bad news for his fans is that he was on tour and now the rest of it has been cancelled, because you can't play an awesome show from jail — unless you're Johnny Cash.

He blames the death of Robyn Whitehead for leaving him a broken man.

Hopefully this little vacation straightens him out! Let's hope it acts as a form of drug rehab, and he can get back to his music once he's out again.

Maybe he could even finish the tour for those who are upset about missing him!

    so sad… he's so very talented. Actual talent, not faux talent like the current crop of "stars" such as lady caca.
    .
    He's gonna end up like Jim Morrison.

    Pete has mad musical ability. He's past the age where drugs should be a focus. Using another's death as a reason to imbibe is a trick - on yourself, and one that addicts pull out and polish off when they decide they want to use. It's a destructive and negative coping mechanism that they need to replace with something else, like running or coffee with old friends. Unless he changes how he copes when things happen, this will be the result. If he can strengthen himself inside his head for these six months and decide to become his own best friend, he has a chance.

    You know, Perez. It's rather hypocritical for you to say celebrities shouldn't get special treatment when it comes to the law, but really have no problem with postponing a jail sentence, so fans wouldn't be "upset" about missing him.

    Quite frankly, these people know what kind of person this man is; a junkie and shouldn't be upset he was caught with a fuck ton of cocaine.. cause it's not surprising.

    I just hope it's an actual 6 months and doesn't turn out to be the celebrity equivalent, which would be what, 11 hours?

    THAT WILL TEACH YOU!!!!!!!!

    Oh, so the English judges actually send them to do the actual time for the crime. Can he not just do it from the comfort of his home with an ankle device? Maybe he should take up stealing, that might get him off.

    Was supposed to be seeing him on tour next week :( devastated . . I find it incredibly offensive when people forget about of his talent because of his drug problems, the amount of people who comment about him calling him scum without being able to name any of his songs is shocking. Amazingly talented musician, one of the best lyricists of our generation and a beautiful man, I truly hope he can sort his life out and that Ill be able to see when he completes this tour, just devastated about the delay. Bright side, he seems to write a shit load of music each time hes put away so I shall be expecting an incredible new album when he gets out again =)

    this is why I don't bother buying tickets for his shows. theres such a minor chance the show will actually go ahead. He was supposed to be playing Glasgow TONIGHT. Loads of friends are really annoyed right now. though I suppose my 'i told you so' dance isnt helping.
