London - (ReUterus & Ass Mess): Pete Doherty's mother Jacqueline Doherty has told reporters that ever since her son split with girlfriend Kate Moss his financial troubles have piled up as his bank cancelled his overdraft and withdrew all his credit cards.
"Pete is almost skint", Jackie D said.
"He'd been running on empty for the last nine months thinking he could make some money from live performances and song royalties.
"But his bank took our an injuction against him so that 95% of all his earning go straight into repaying his huge bank loans which now stand at almost £5 million.
"He can't touch a penny of anything he earns and is allowed a maximum of £200 per week to cover his living expenses.
"But as everybody knows all that goes up his nose on a Friday night leaving nothing for basics.
"I think Kate was subsidising him during the last year but he owes her over £500,000 after she reported him to the cops for making unauthorised withdrawals from her private accounts.
"There's a court order banning him from selling, renting or mortgaging his Shoreditch flat so he can't get his hands on any extra cash via that route.
"As for the trailer under Westway, the council condemned it last week as a health hazard after. Even the cockroaches have moved out because of the mess.
"Pete's got a couple of guitars left which he sometimes pawns for a month or so to get his mitts on extra dosh.
"But even those don't get him much more than a couple of extra crack rocks for the weekend so he's almost running out of options."
Asked about internet rumors that her son had been blackmailing Moss over stories about her and a North London mobster being her real dad Jackie Doherty said:
"Can't say anything about that. She's a nice enough girl but daft as a brush.
"At least she's better off without Pete now, even though I say that as his mother.
"Nothing short of a year in rehab or five years in the Scrubs will ever get through that thick skull of his."
