What is up with Pete Doherty and his models girlfriends?
First was Kate Moss, then Irinia Lazareanu and now it seems like Pete
Doherty has got himself another model. The singer has been linked with 19-year-old
model Portia Freeman. A pal of Doherty says, “Pete is seeing Portia and he
really likes her. They get to see each other at weekends when Pete isn’t
touring with his band Babyshambles.
“She went back to Pete’s after watching him play a gig in December. It’s early
days and they are enjoying each other’s company.”
According to the pal, it is hoped Freeman - who bears a resemblance to
Doherty’s ex-Kate Moss - will help Doherty finally kick drugs.
“Portia is probably the best thing to happen to Pete. She is a very
clean-living girl and not at all into drugs,” they say.
“He is trying to stick with his rehab programme and trying to stay clean. He is
having regular counselling sessions and has been advised not to jump headfirst
into any relationship. He wants to take things slowly.”
According to Doherty’s manager Andy Boyd the couple is unlikely to be dating
“Obviously I don’t know about everything Pete does. I’m not saying that he and
Portia don’t know each other - I just don’t think they are in a relationship.”
