Pete Doherty and the band he fronts Babyshambles, altogether, have been dropped from record label Rough Trade Records. Concerning that matter, the U.K. press over the weekend claimed that the decision to drop the band came after an incident last week during which Doherty squirted a syringe of blood over an MTV news crew.

"Rough Trade were in the process of renegotiating a deal, but the talks broke down because it just proved to be so difficult to deal with Pete and the people he surrounds himself with," so said a source. However, Rough Trade Records have denied claims that Doherty's controversial antics prompted the decision to let the band go.
