Pete Doherty has moved in with lover Kate Moss. The Babyshambles frontman was seen carrying a treasured gold disc, a banjo, clothes and a baby-seat into the supermodel's luxurious north London flat. A source revealed: "It was hilarious, Pete was shifting all this tatty stuff into Kate's posh home. Pete was carrying his gold disc and wherever that disc is, Pete is. If he has moved it into Kate's it means he is staying there permanently."
As he carried his belongings into Kate's property, Pete - who wasn't wearing a shirt - stopped to entertain onlookers by strumming on his banjo. Kate, 33, was sporting a diamond ring on her engagement finger. Pete, 27, was kicked out of his east London flat after owing 10,000 in unpaid rent. After he left, photographs were released showing blood-spattered walls, drug paraphernalia, empty beer cans and cigarette butts strewn everywhere. Landlord Andreas Panayiotou claimed Pete was the "worst tenant" he had ever had.
Meanwhile, Pete caused chaos at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, in Oxfordshire, when he threw what looked like a cannabis joint to the penguins. The rocker - who has been treated for drug addiction - was showing off in front of Kate when he hurled the alleged joint into the pen. One of the Humboldt penguins promptly swallowed it. A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Everyone knew he was smoking grass. He was joking about getting the penguins stoned. He threw them his joint and it looked like one penguin gulped it down. It seemed very wobbly." Last night, London Zoo's chief veterinary officer blasted Pete's antics. Andrew Routh fumed: "Feeding a penguin cannabis could be fatal. It contains toxins that attack the nervous system and liver."
