I kicked Kate Moss and armed cops broke into her house, but it was true love, says Pete Doherty.

HE was addicted to crack and heroin, once robbed a bandmate’s apartment, and spent time in jail more than once.

Libertines lead singer Pete Doherty has lived a wild life, but he says things got crazier when he fell in love with supermodel Kate Moss.

In his new book, Likely Boyfriend, the 43-year-old writes: “I was pretty kinky before I met Kate, but this was a whole new thing.”

Their romance began when Pete performed at the star’s 31st birthday party at her Cotswold mansion in 2005.

As a result, the party lasted all weekend.

Pete, who brought a shoebox full of drugs with him, found himself hanging out with a lot of “random celebrities”.

However, some of the guests, including Kate’s former partner, Jefferson Hack, were not happy to see him.

Pete writes: “I had half of the group trying to rip me off and the other half trying to kick me out saying, ‘What are you doing here?’ ”

But he and Kate, 48, fell in love instantly.

Pete recalls: “I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this is a part of me, a big country house with a swimming pool, fancy carpets and strange artwork,’ and this girl, with whom I fell head over heels.

“Kate said, ‘Look, you can move if we’re going to love each other.’

Within a week they had identical tattoos.

Soon after, they met with each other’s parents and Pete’s dad asked the world famous Kate, “What are you doing?”

But from the very beginning, their romance was overshadowed by Pete’s addiction to Class A drugs.

Kate has been horrified by incidents such as his imprisonment in 2005 in Pentonville, North London, on charges of robbery and blackmail after an argument with a former friend.

The charges were later dropped.

He also admits that he sold articles to newspapers to pay off drug debts and raise bail funds.

He writes: “In fact, it was an ongoing battle for the next two and a half years, drugs, her obsession with tabloids and her image.

“I really loved her and knew that she loved me”

“The big thing about Kate was that she didn’t take her for****. It was her favorite expression.”

At Kate’s urging, Peet received a naltrexone implant, which was used to reduce the effects of heroin, but he found it “blew my head”.

And that didn’t stop him from using it.

When Kate modeled all over the world, he was at her mansion “cracking my balls in luxury” – only for Kate to call him furiously because the housekeeper told her he had some “thugs”. round”.

Pete, who formed his band Babyshambles in 2003 after being fired from The Libertines due to drug addiction and a deteriorating relationship with the band’s lead singer, Carl Barat, says continues?

They once lost their car in Ibiza – after Pete accidentally knocked it off a cliff – and ended up walking through the hills to a fashion party in pitch darkness.

He also recalls arguing with Rolling Stone’s Ronnie Wood while Kate was sleeping and being thrown off actress Sadie Frost’s yacht because they said he smoked crack in the engine room.

The situation came to a head when, in September 2005, photos of Kate snorting cocaine at a Babyshambles recording made it to the front page of the newspaper.

She lost numerous modeling contracts due to the scandal, including a £4 million deal with H&M, and she blamed Pete for it.

He writes: “She said, ‘If you didn’t sell the pictures, how did they get into the papers?’ “

“And I couldn’t tell. I just assumed my friend did it.”

Kate flew to rehab in Arizona and said that she broke up with Pete, although he says that they still communicate.

She insisted that he also go to rehab, but when she found out that he was discharged early, she broke up with him for real.

However, their romance did not end there. Pete says that a mutual friend contacted him with a code word when she wanted to secretly meet at the apartment.

He says: “We were drawn to each other. I really loved her, and I knew that she loved me – there was all this mess between us, with all her chaos and my chaos.

“Sometimes we just needed to see each other. Basically, she snapped her fingers and I came running.”

By October 2006 they were engaged and Pete spent £14,000 on a ring in Florence.

“In the end, our worlds were incompatible”

While on holiday in Thailand in January 2007 – whimsically escorted by hotel magnate Sir David Tang and Sarah Ferguson – the couple had a quasi-wedding ceremony on the beach, during which they wrapped snakes around each other’s necks.

But things turned sour when Pete went missing and was arrested after doing drugs with random tourists he met.

Pete writes: “Kate and David Tang came to bail me out of the police station and I was so freaked out I called Kate a jerk and kicked her mid-flight and then ran down the freeway.

“The next thing I woke up at Heathrow was wearing Thai police shorts – I didn’t even have a passport.”

However, it wasn’t until later that year that the couple broke up for good.

Pete says that “there wasn’t really a single specific incident that ended the relationship. In the end, our worlds weren’t quite compatible.”

Kate was furious when her London mansion was raided by armed police after Pete accidentally pressed the panic button while searching for drugs.

In the final showdown, Kate smashed the precious guitar and attacked his beloved teddy bear.

He writes: “There was a last big old start. She desecrated this 1930s Gibson, smashed it.

“Then Kate had Pandy, my teddy bear, doused in gasoline and set it on fire – it’s not funny. I took it around London with me.

“It’s still annoying – it was the only thing I held on to.”

In the book, Pete talks honestly about the chaos of his life and says, “Part of me wanted to be the most jaded person in the world.”

Multiple stays in rehab didn’t help, mostly because he was either smuggling drugs, checking out early, or both.

He also believes that the police had a “league table” for the number of times they could arrest him – once he was stolen three times within 24 hours.

On another occasion, 13 packs of heroin fell out of his pocket while he was in court on a driving case.

One of his worst moments was snatching phones from cyclists at traffic lights to try and impress a new drug dealer.

He adds, “I wouldn’t say I deliberately made myself sleazy, but I’ve always felt like I exist in defiance of my own health.”

Unfortunately, he found a kindred spirit in singer and drug addict Amy Winehouse.

The two tried to collaborate musically, but Pete says that “trying to make music with her was like an ongoing battle between her excesses and her musical genius.”

He insists that he was not misleading her by always refusing her demands to inject her with heroin, but “it was almost as if having her with me was a chance for her to completely lose her mind.”

The couple nearly slept on the tour bus at the 2009 V Festival, but Pete writes, “We started it when her security showed up and literally tore her off me.”

Amy died at the age of 27 in 2011. An investigation found that her blood alcohol content was five times the legal limit for drunk driving.

Another lost soul was model Peaches Geldof. He says they “helped each other a lot to score.”

He adds: “She was wild as hell. She made me feel like an old man. . . talk about black arts and unimaginable sexual positions.”

Peaches died at the age of 25 in 2014 after taking drugs. But Pete survived his addiction and managed to end it.

An incident in Paris in late 2019, in which he was arrested twice in 24 hours, first for buying crack and then for beating up a motorcyclist, served as the catalyst for his cleansing.

About being in the police station, he writes: “I pulled down my pants and pissed all over the counter, shouting all sorts of nonsense about the war.

When they came to interview me, I was just wearing a QPR shirt, pants, and an ass-soaked blanket.”

After receiving a suspended sentence, he began taking the heroin blocker Buvidal. He has been clean for three years now.

Pete credits his wife, Catia de Vidas, whom he married last year and now lives with in France, for helping him stay on drugs.

He says: “She saved my life – the most incredible woman.” But the scars of his former life will remain with him forever.

He writes: “Open sores never looked good. My hand is strange even now. The trail will never disappear.”

EDIT IN UDAH

NOW drug free, Pete has a new passion – cheese produced in his adopted homeland of Normandy in France.

He can’t get enough of brie and camembert, telling the interviewer, “There’s something special about grass.”

He has long had a reputation for having a big appetite, and was dubbed the Pigman by his bandmate Carl.

So it’s no surprise that when he lived in Margate, Kent, in 2018, Pete took a big part in breakfast at the city’s Dalby Café.

The giant plate includes four slices of bacon, four eggs, four sausages, a hamburger and chips, hash browns, mushrooms, onion rings, buns and squeaks, two thick slices of bread, and a choice of beans or tomatoes.

Pete ate it all in just 20 minutes.

However, these days, he doesn’t want to be called Pigman.

He writes: “I try to watch my weight.
