Pete Doherty tries to top himself!

After years of drug and legal troubles, it may be hard to believe he’s made it this far. But now Pete Doherty has revealed that he actually tried to kill himself when he turned 30.

The Babyshambles rocker, most famous for being the ex-boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss, said he was absolutely devastated to reach this landmark birthday in April and got so drunk that be began to think he couldn’t go on.

Pete recalls, “I had this bash in Paris and it was an absolute disgrace. I just made a bit of an idiot out of myself. We had a right old knees-up. I don’t even know exactly what happened but I ended up trying to throw myself off the top of the hotel.

I wasn’t happy at all about being 30.” Pete says he eventually gave up on ideas of suicide, however, and took to abusing the catering staff at his do. The shambolic singer explains, “I went through a bottle of vodka. They presented me with this cake and I pushed it in the face of the chef who’d just made it for me. Then the chef and the security guards were chasing me around. I think I escaped unscathed. It was hilarious. I had a great night.” Ageing gracefully, he ain’t.
