Peter Doherty turned to his four legged friends as he celebrated turning the landmark age of forty years old on Tuesday – and went for a very non rock n roll walk to celebrate.
The on-off Libertines frontman was spotted energetically walking his dogs as he hit the big 40 in his hometown of Margate, in Kent.
Dressed in office-friendly trousers, the Don’t Look Back into the Sun singer showed hints of indie rock and roll style with a green army coat and a jaunty baker boy hat.
The troubled star looked in good spirits as he walked two husky dogs as the UK was battered by Storm Gareth and temperatures struggled to reach double figures.
He concluded his day with a dinner in an empty restaurant and shared video of himself playing piano alongside Carl Barat.
Pete has had quite the colourful life, to say the least, with chart fame and criminal record disasters both highlighting and blighting his life.
As part of the Libertines, with Carl, Pete enjoyed international success – as well as a 2004 UK number 1 chart topping album – and produced hits including Up The Bracket and Can’t Stand Me Now.
But trouble emerged soon after with the friendship between Carl and Pete becoming strained after the latter burgled the former’s London flat – leading Pete to land a stint in jail.
Things only got worse as Pete’s much documented drug problems caused problems – with heroin and crack cocaine use making shocking headlines and the Libertines splitting in 2004 – before reforming years later.
After being booted from The Libertines, Pete went his own way – forming the band Babyshambles, releasing three albums between 2005 and 2013, but never quite reaching the success of The Libertines.
Pete has also enjoyed success with the ladies – famously dating fellow former drug abuse scandal embroiled star Kate Moss.
The pair met in 2005 and even became engaged in 2007, but split not long after the engagement was announced.
He has a son named Astile who was born in 2003 to singer Lisa Moorish and has a daughter who was born in 2011 to South African model Lindi Kingston.
