Doherty 'Takes Drugs' in Front of Reporter


Troubled rocker Pete Doherty openly took heroin and crack cocaine throughout an interview with Rolling Stone magazine -- shocking a journalist.

Writer Mark Binelli met the Babyshambles frontman and former boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss in a rundown flat in the Hackney area of London.

Binelli says, "Over the next three hours, Doherty will also smoke crack, shoot heroin and take an ecstasy pill.

"He does all of this casually, and openly, except for the shooting up, which he performs near the kitchenette, with his back to us. He offers me heroin and ecstasy but not crack. I decline.

"The more drugs Doherty does, the more he seems to relax. He never becomes incoherent, though occasionally he seems confused."

Doherty is due in a London court Thursday to answer drug possession charges. He is accused of carrying an assortment of illegal substances recovered by police in incidents in December and January.
