Pete Doherty has said he regrets revealing an alleged fling with French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The move comes after the former Libertines man exclusively told NME earlier this year he enjoyed a brief love affair with Gainsbourg while they filmed the movie Confession Of A Child Of The Century.

He claimed the daughter of famed musician Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin, left her longtime partner Yvan Attal to be with him, but moved back to France after four days because she couldn't stand his lifestyle.

The singer, who is residing in Paris, said he now regrets revealing his relationship because he claims she's no longer speaking to him.

He told The Daily Mail:
I'd drunk too much rum and taken too much coke that day. I wish I'd never said it. Charlotte won't speak to me now.

Doherty is currently working on a new solo album. He previously told NME he has 12 songs written and is currently working on them with producer Adem Hilmi. His last solo album, 2009's 'Grace/Wastelands', was produced by Blur and Smiths cohort Stephen Street.
