Is it just us or does this scenario sound like a real-life version of Party Monster???!
Better believe it!
After meeting a couple of years ago while making a flick "inspired" by the horse tranquilizer ketamine called The Wrong Ferrari, the former child star has moved into long-troubled Pete's Paris home.
A source close to the troubled actor said:
Huzzah!! We belllliiiieeeevvveee in yoooouuuuu, Pete Doherty!!
Even though Amy Winhouse's ex-lover and former Libertines/Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty recently got kicked OUT of his $$$ Thai rehabilitation clinic, it seems the few lessons he managed to sit still for actually had some effect!
Pete arrived EARLY Thursday night at his first UK show since rehab rejection, and expertly soldiered through a 60 minute set… without f*cking up once!
The show was stuffed with fan favorites including Time For Heroes, Music When The Lights Go Out, F*ck Forever, and Beg, Steal Or Borrow among others, AND he even led the audience in singing The Beatles' hit She Loves You!
Yaaaaay Pete! We're SO SO thrilled to hear you're putting those enviable musical abilities of yours to use! You have far to much talent to be pumping soul destorying drugz into your veins.
Maintain! Stay steadfast and true! And all that inspirational jazz.

We were so, so, SO hoping that Pete Doherty's most recent rehab stay would be the one that finally got him off of all those terrible drugs he's been poisoning his body with throughout the years. Unfortunately, it was just another misadventure!
The rock star jetted off to a rehabilitation center in Chiang Mai, Thailand at the end of June, but has been kicked out for being a "disruptive influence" on other patients.
Alastair Mordey, the director of the facility, called Pete's booting an "amicable" parting and hopes "some of the things he has learnt here will help him in the future."
So do we.
Sad times for those hoping to see Pete Doherty perform sometime in the near future…
But wondrous news for crack-cocaine/heroine addict Pete, who jetted off to a rehabilitation center in Chiang Mai, Thailand, with the ultimate goal of FULLY conquering his demons.
This means that Pete will NOT be attending T in the Park in Scotland, Rock for the People in Czech Republic or Superbock Superrock in Portugal.
Oh, we hope hope HOPE he can finally get those insatiable cravings under control, at least for the sake of his two children!
Kick that nasty monkey off your back, Pete!

Pete Doherty was in France this past weekend to attend the Cannes Film Festival because that's where his debut film is premiering!
His first major acting role in Confession of a Child of the Century was unveiled on Sunday at the festival, but it wasn't to the best reviews.
While one reviewer praised the British rocker as "perfectly cast," others weren't so nice.
The Guardian panned the film and said, "Pete Doherty's performance as a philosophising dandy is as catastrophic as the
OoOo what is that!?!
Well it's a not a film, that's for sure!
No, no. When Pete Doherty goes to Cannes, he's prepared to enjoy all forms of entertainment.
Taking a break at Nikki Beach Club, the English rocker enjoyed a lil' reading before probably hitting up another party.
Looking very intellectual these days, Pete!
