Pete Doherty has defended himself against allegations that he injected heroin into the arm of an unconscious fan
Troubled rocker Pete Doherty breaks his silence over The Sun's published photographs showing him injecting heroin into the arm of an unconscious fan.
Intended to clear the things up, Doherty wrote in a posting to his band's official Website "Just a note to note the unjust Sun's disturbing and ridiculously offensive 'story.' Firstly, the photos are stolen from my flat so...upsetting and personally catastrophic...how rude, secondly it's a staged shot and what a f--king liberty to suggest I'd bang up a sleeping lass. Darkness."
What's more, the woman in the picture Laura McEvoy has also supported the Babyshambles singer's statement, claiming she was fully conscious when the pictures were taken. There are, moreover, six of Pete's friends have made similar official statements to that effect, claiming there were no drugs involved in the scene and that there was nothing untoward going on.
As for his side, Doherty claims that rather than injecting a substance into the girl's arm, he was actually extracting one. He told police he was drawing McEvoy's blood to make a "blood painting," several of which have been posted on the 27-year-old rocker's personal Website, BalaChadha.com.
