Pete Doherty was also forced to plead with fans to stay away from his home in France earlier this year, after the address was given away by a journalist.

Doherty released a statement, saying:

“Peter recently discussed living in Melun in an interview for a French publication and during a French TV show Le Grand Journal mentioned the small village where he resides.”

“For clarity; Peter does spend time there with his girlfriend, who is the tenant of the house, but also has a registered address in the UK, obviously his time spent in either location works around commitments throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

“Unfortunately, much to our dismay a journalist from another French publication has detailled the exact location of the property in a very innappropriate and bizarre recent online article. Whilst Peter is a public figure he also reserves the right to a private life and if you love and respect him please do not visit.”
