No, she went of her own accord...

Apparently - if the Sunday Mirror is considered a reliable source in your neck of the woods - Kate Moss has ordered Pete Doherty to axe the Babyshambles live dates, and wants to whisk him off to get married, get pregnant, and get sorted.

A lovely plan. There may, however, be a fatal flaw in her thinking. I wonder if you can spot it:

Now she wants to take Potty Pete to Jamaica to get married and continue his rehabilitation - away from the druggie lifestyle and the rock 'n' roll hangers-on who follow him everywhere.

Jamaica. Yes, get away from the drugs by going to Jamaica. That'll work. It's like trying to escape a fear of the dark by potholing.

Babyshambles pulled a Liverpool date when Pete didn't show up:

EMI were forced to admit: "Babyshambles have made the decision to postpone the remaining five dates of their UK tour. It has become clear that Peter embarked on the arduous and high-profile tour too soon after his discharge and still needs time to recover from his extensive rehab treatment."

The paper, though, reckons he'd completely recovered from rehab to the extent he was spending half a grand on drugs every day. Nice to see the EMI cash being so well spent, isn't it?
