Pete Doherty to marry ‘fiancee’ Kate Moss

Fresh from a Libertines reunion, Pete has plans for another union

Pete Doherty confirmed that he intends to marry supermodel girlfriend Kate Moss.

Speaking during the first of his solo shows at London’s Hackney Empire (April 11), the Babyshambles dropped his biggest hint yet that he will tie the knot.

Playing ’What Katie Did’ from The Libertines‘ second album, Doherty told the audience he was performing the song for Moss.


“On that note I’d like to dedicate this song to my beautiful fiancée,” he declared.

As previously reported, Moss then joined the singer onstage, lending backing vocals to the Babyshambles track ‘La Belle Et La Bête’, before departing the stage, giving her boyfriend a one-fingered salute.

The news comes as Doherty used his second solo show last night (April 12) to reunite onstage with his Libertines bandmate Carl Barat for the first time in three years.
