Both Carl Barat and his management have dismissed tabloid reports that The Libertines are reuniting for a UK tour.

It was reported in the Sunday Mirror that Pete Doherty and Carl Barat had reconciled and were on the brink of announcing a tour, after Barat tweeted a picture of him and Doherty together, but the prospect of a reunion tour has now been completely ruled out.

Barat posted a message on his Facebook page Facebook.com/carlbarat which reads: "So that "story" in the Mirror yesterday? Complete fabrication, folks."

NME also contacted management of the band, who said of the reports:

None of us are aware where this is all coming from beyond the fact the pair of them met for a tea and had a nice time. Carl posted a picture of them on Twitter and that's that really.



It continues:

Truth of the matter is there are NO plans whatsoever in the pipeline and both of them are committed to other things for the next year anyway. Carl leaves for Paris next month for rehersals on his opera which will keep him busy until next June and Peter is away on tour.
