Why are people helping him?! Don't they know they're just feeding the beast? The founder of British clothing company Lastseason.com has set up a welfare fund to help Pete Doherty, which they will present to him when he gets released from prison. Stefano Passantino hopes the proceeds will help Pete turn his life around.
He says, "The bloke's incredibly talented and as a musician he brings a lot of joy to people's lives. I am a big fan who wants to see this gifted bloke given every chance to get back on his feet again. I want to see Pete performing and writing new material for years to come."
Newsflash! That bloke is a drug addict! Have these people learned nothing?! If you give money to a crack addict, he will turn right around and buy more crack with it. It's not like Pete is in rehab right now. He's in prison; probably doing the same amount of heroin he was doing on the outside, if not more.
