Babyshambles and Libertines star Pete Doherty has claimed that he and late soul singer Amy Winehouse were once lovers, though they had a short-lived relationship.
The news - which may not come as a massive surprise to many, considering the two stars’ personalities - was broken in an interview with The Daily Mail, in which he also talks about her unfortunate death and what he thinks may have caused it.
“This is difficult for me to admit,” Doherty told the paper, “but, yes, it's true. Amy and I were lovers. I loved her then and, well, I still do today. But towards the end, as only lovers can, she became quite mean and cruel to me. She didn't suffer fools… and believe me, she had a mean right hook.”
He continued on about drugs and her abuse of them, saying: “She came back to my hotel after the Libertines reunion warm-up gig at the Forum in Kentish Town in August 2010. When she left the hotel, the paparazzi followed her. It brought back unpleasant memories of when I was with Kate [Moss] and how they would follow us around everywhere.
“Amy couldn’t step outside her front door without a mob of about 30 blokes thrusting cameras at her. If you then include crack in the equation, it becomes a real killer – especially as Amy didn’t do things by halves.”
