Pete Doherty broke?

After Babyshambles make a loss

Pete Doherty is allegedly on the verge of being broke.

The Babyshambles frontman has made his losses according to accounts filed to cover the year up to April 2006.

According to The Daily Mirror, the singer has not invested his royalties well, while one Babyshambles tour made a loss of £21,737.

The singer’s other business, Babyshambles Limited, made a profit of just £1,910.

However this year should look more promising financially for Doherty, as along with a major label record deal, Babyshambles are set to mount a UK arena tour in November.

The dates are at:

Manchester MEN Arena (November 22)

Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (23)

Brighton Centre (25)

Bournemouth International Centre (26)

London Wembley Arena (27)

Birmingham NIA (28)

Nottingham Arena (30)

Glasgow SECC (December 1)
