Pete Doherty marries Katia in secret ceremony two days after confirming engagement
Pete Doherty is married!
The Libertines singer and his partner Katia de Vidas have tied the knot in a secret ceremony just two days after confirming their engagement.
A representative for the rocker, 42, had confirmed on Tuesday that he had proposed to the film editor.
Fans had become suspicious of their relationship status after seeing her wearing a shiny new ring on Instagram.
And just a couple of days later, Katia’s cousin Julia Mallet confirmed in a social media post that the lovebirds had married.
Sharing a snap her Katia in a wedding dress, she wrote: “When you find out your cousin got married over night!! Congratulations Katia and Pete Doherty!!”
The Mirror has contacted Pete’s representatives for further comment.
Pete has been in the news a lot lately due to his unrecognisable look, that he said was all down to his love of cheese on toast.
Pete, who lives in France with Katia, 47, who he’s in a band with, recently spoke about his dramatic change in appearance, saying it was all down to the fact that he’s living a “mostly clean” lifestyle after quitting drugs.
And while he still enjoys alcohol, he often goes for “a nice glass of water” instead.
The former drug addict, who famously dated supermodel Kate Moss at the height of his fame, has swapped partying for lazy nights in and getting plenty of sleep.
After pictures of Pete looking very different emerged online, he told The Sun: “I like Comté, Comté on toast. My guilty pleasure is sleeping.
“For years and years, I would stay up for five or six days and then I would sleep for 24 hours, so now I love sleep.
“At the moment I’m quite clean. I stopped taking heroin and ketamine.”
Pete added that he likes to experiment with cocktails, mixing up drinks with champagne, rum and orange juice, but joked that he was “coming across like a bit of an alcoholic” as he insisted that’s far from the truth.
The star, who lives in Normandy, also admitted that while he’d love to tuck into a Big Mac every now and again, his nearest McDonald’s is 40 minutes away so he rarely gets the chance.
A source has said that Pete is “the happiest he’s ever been” after settling down in France and putting his wild lifestyle behind him.
