Guess junkies birds of a strung-out feather really do OD flock together.

Now that her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is in jail, Amy Winehouse seems to be spending more time with Pete Doherty - and her father is not happy.

In fact, seeing the often-arrested Babyshambles singer out with his daughter made dad Mitch Winehouse go berzerk, he admitted to Grazia magazine.

"I do worry about people like Pete Doherty. He's a scumbag," a distraught Mitch Winehouse said. "I flipped when I saw him sitting with Amy backstage at her Brixton gig. I went crazy. My wife thought I was going to have a heart attack."

Some sources reported that Pete Doherty was present when Amy Winehouse overdosed on drugs in August. Regardless, they are hanging out a lot nowadays.

The diminutive jazz-pop diva, 24, has struggled mightily since her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was arrested for alleged witness tampering in November.

She also canceled all 2007 shows, and mother Janis Winehouse wrote an open letter published by the media, begging Amy to come home and get clean.

"I know the real problem here is that she's depressed about [Blake Fielder-Civil] being in prison," Mitch Winehouse said. "I wasn't in favor of the marriage, but they are married and I will support them. And he's shown while he's been in prison a level of maturity that he didn't have before."

While admitting to the magazine that Amy is "not very well," Mitch Winehouse said he can't force his daughter - who was recently nominated for six Grammy Awards for her smash hit album, Back to Black - into rehab.

"Believe me, my first instinct is to get hold of her, pick her up and take her back to my house and lock her away," he said. "But I've spoken to the finest drug counselors in the world, and they've said that is exactly the wrong thing to do."

One day.

That's how long since The Hollywood Gossip published a story about "rocker" Pete Doherty staying clean and turning over a new leaf with Irina Lazareanu - today, we learn that new photos of Doherty using heroin have surfaced.

Record company reps for Pete Doherty apologized and issued a statement in an attempt to shame the Babyshambles singer into sobriety. It was just Tuesday that the troubled star spoke out about missing drugs, but said he was clean.

The letter reads:

"Pete Doherty would like to apologize to the medical staff, fans and well-wishers who have helped and encouraged him in fighting his addiction to heroin. His ongoing rehabilitation was a source of such pride to him that Peter and those closest to him thought that he was close to winning his personal battle with drugs. However, Peter sadly relapsed last week and is now looking to check himself back into a rehab clinic so that he can try to continue the hitherto excellent attempts he had made to break free of heroin. He realizes that he has not only let himself down but has let down those who trusted and encouraged his efforts and he is filled with remorse for what he describes today as, 'a stupid, stupid action for which I feel only shame.'"

It is indeed sad. Here's hoping that those close to Pete - including ex Kate Moss and her new boyfriend Jamie Hince - stick by him in this time of need.

After an arduous period of on-and-off-again romance and hard-ass drug use, the British "rocker" Pete Doherty says he is now clean, he and Irina Lazareanu are in love, and he and ex Kate Moss are becoming friends again.

"She's a friend, but people are going to say what they want about it," the frontman of Babyshambles, 28, told Us Weekly regarding Moss at the MTV European Music Awards in Munich November 1. "She's really happy now, and so am I."

Pete Doherty â€" who has been in and out of rehab centers and courts countless times in the past few years â€" said he is now off the drugs. We'll believe that around the time Britney Spears starts caring about her kids. 

Pete Doherty: Smiling, supposedly sober. 

"It's nice to be able to remember a gig," he said. "I'm feeling fantastic! Everything's really cool right now," he added. "I'm enjoying life. People are gonna try and bring you back down, but I'm strong now."

Helping him along the way? Girlfriend Irina Lazareanu, a Canadian model.

"I'm just really f---in' happy," Doherty said. "I've had many chances. Life's good."

He is also finding support through a new unlikely pal: Snoop Dogg. The pair  was supposedly seen chatting during the MTV awards weekend.

"They were talking about music, and Snoop was saying how he wanted to add an indie feel to a few of his tracks," an onlooker said. "Pete was saying he should get in touch with his manager to see if they can work something out."

Train wreck rocker Pete Doherty and his longtime girlfriend / fiancee, the often naked Kate Moss, have ended their relationship and moved on. Fast.

Pete Doherty is said to be dating - even engaged to - hippie chick model Irina Lazareanu. He is also probably snorting mounds of coke right now.

Moss Baby Bump Watch

Irina Lazareanu was once - scandalously - Kate Moss' close friend, and was chosen by the anorexic supermodel to model her UglyWear TopShop brand.

Kate Moss has also moved on, though, finding new love with James Hince, also known as Jamie Hince, the disheveled singer of "The Kills."

PeteMoss movin' on: Jamie Hince and Irina Lazareau fill a void.

Speaking of things that kill, how about James Hince's face! Wow, quite the looker you've got there, Kate. Then again, look at Pete Doherty. What a nut.

Weren't Pete Doherty and Kate Moss going out like a month ago?

Maybe we were as high as these train wrecks at the time, but The Hollywood Gossip staff could've sworn they were a couple again. Now, however?

Moss is reportedly engaged to Jamie Hince.

And now model Irena Lazareanu was spotted earlier this week sporting an engagement ring given to her by Doherty, saying she "very recently got engaged."

Can you really blame her? Who could resist this face?

If Doherty and Lazareanu are on the path to marriage, just like Katharine McPhee and Nick Cokas, then we wish them the best.

But if this is a false rumor, just like the one involving Tyra Banks and John Utendahl, well, who cares. We're sure Doherty is too wasted to notice.

He's up there with Steve Coogan on the good friend scale.

According to recent reports, none other than the great Pete Doherty was there when Amy Winehouse overdosed on drugs last week, an incident which led to her running through the streets, bloodied, crazy and almost dying and stuff.

Getting Her Kicks

Minutes before Amy Winehouse was rushed to the hospital, Pete Doherty hit the road! Foolz didn't want to get caught up in that mess, we guess.

The two apparently had dinner with her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, that night, then went back to the Wino's pad for their version of an after-dinner "cocktail" - you know, a speedball of heroin and cocaine. Standard operating procedure.

"She collapsed when they went back to her flat. Pete left because he didn't want any bad publicity," says a source close to the pair. "He didn't know how to deal with it and thought she was dying. She was foaming at the mouth and fitting... Pete had never seen anything like it."

He has seen Kate Moss nude, though, and Pete Doherty is also rumored to have done the nasty with Amy Winehouse. Whether he remembers is another matter.

Yikes. Just pray that Winehouse doesn't get knocked up anytime soon. If you thought an Amy-Blake baby would be all kinds of screwed up, just think about the poor, afflicted offspring of Winehouse and Pete Doherty! Petehouse! God help us all.

That kid would come out of the womb and ask someone if they'd shoot up.

Rambling rocker Pete Doherty baby-shambled his junkie ass back to rehab Thursday after a drama-filled week that involved a violent run-in with a poor celebrity news photographer and yet another drug-related bust.

The babyshambles frontman checked in to Cloud's House rehab center in England after allegedly chasing and assaulting photographer Cath Mead.

Cath Mead claims her hair was pulled and camera smashed in the attack. Man, life in the celebrity news business is getting more dangerous by the day.

Cloud's House has served such illustrious clients as Robbie Williams and Boy George.

Surprisingly, Lindsay Lohan has never visited there.

Doherty, who hasn't seen Kate Moss nude since they broke up, was arrested (again) on suspicion of drug possession. He was released on the condition that he live with a friend in Somerset.

This guy has the best lawyers on earth. How else can you remain free after all these run-ins with the man? Maybe Austin Nichols could place a call to that law firm?

One would think that by now, police would've gotten the whole routine of arresting Pete Doherty down.

Then again, one would also think that the LAPD wouldn't ruin an air-tight case by trying to frame a guilty O.J. Simpson. But that's neither here nor there. Nor this century.

Anyway, Doherty, Kate Moss' ex-boytoy, got off yesterday. At the hands of a judge.

Police somehow couldn't get him in front of a judge within 24 hours of his arrest on suspicion of drug possession, thus denying his right to a speedy trial.

The "singer" had been arrested around 2:30 AM Monday, after performing with his band Babyshambles at a festival. But, according to reports, Judge Susan Williams had to set Doherty free, saying:

"Anyone arrested for a breach of bail must be brought before the court and dealt with in a 24-hour period."

This guy beats the rap more than Coley Laffoon beats... forget it.

Of course, Pete Doherty escaped big trouble several times before, having been threatened with jail less than two weeks ago.

It's unclear how his recent arrest will affect that case, in which he admitted driving illegally with crack, heroin, ketamine and pot.

He's definitely leading Jason Wahler on The Hollywood Gossip's arrest watch, and we expect him to be back behind bars by September 1.

Some pieces of celebrity news would legitimately shock us. If there were Julia Stiles nude pics somewhere, for instance, we'd be stunned.

Other news items are so frequent that they regularly elicit yawns. Such as when singer Pete Doherty was arrested early Monday on suspicion of drug possession.

Police say Doherty was arrested with two others, a man and a woman, after being stopped in a car in Tower Hamlets in east London.

The troubled "singer," who has had an on-off relationship with supermodel Kate Moss (with whom he supposedly made the rumored Kate Moss sex tape) had been performing with his band, Babyshambles, at the V Festival in England on Sunday.

Pete Doherty was taken to an east London police station and remains in custody.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "At 2:30 a.m. officers in Tower Hamlets arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of possessing drugs."

Pete Doherty was warned by a magistrate earlier this month he faced a prison sentence if he failed to demonstrate trying to kick his drug habit.

The singer pleaded guilty in July to possessing crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine. What the hell IS ketamine? Does it matter?

No. But someone's gotta get this guy together with Lindsay Lohan

If a Kate Moss nude photo is worth one thousands words, what do you think the price of a Kate Moss sex tape would be?

If you're ex-boyfriend, and current drug fiend, Pete Doherty, the hope is probably as high as you can count.

Now that this couple has broken up, reports are coming in from British celebrity gossip sources that Moss is terrified about two missing tapes from the video diaries she made with Doherty. Evidently, the pair was constantly acting like Victoria Beckham, never leaving home without a camcorder.

And some of the footage shot would make Olivia Mojica blush!

Will we finally see a Pete Doherty and Kate Moss sex tape?

According to Britan's The Sun, Moss and Doherty captured hours of material related to special occasions, antics on the tour bus and action between the sheets. After the pair's messy break-up, the thin model found six of the eight tapes of the pair's shenanigans and destroyed them.

But two are still missing - and Kate is worried about where they'll turn up, especially as Doherty needs more and more cash to support his drug problem.

"There are still some bits and pieces floating about of Pete with Kate," an insider said, regarding possible Jennifer Toof nude-like sex tapes. "She has got rid of most of it. Six out of eight tapes have been destroyed. But she wanted to bury the lot before he could humiliate her by selling them or putting them on the internet."

In one videos released months ago, Doherty is seen serenading a half-naked Kate Moss in her Cotswolds home. In another, the duo is dressed in red military uniforms and sings together.

The source added: "It was fine when they were together. Kate thought it was romantic â€" all a bit John Lennon and Yoko Ono. But Kate could then obviously decide with Pete what was going to be made public. Now, with the remaining two tapes, she has no say."

The person most psyched to hear this news? Nick Lachey. He figures it'll distract the media from questions regarding his rumored sex tape with a nude Vanessa Minnillo.
