Pete Doherty engaged to Katia de Vidas

Pete Doherty is engaged to his long-term girlfriend Katia de Vidas, after five years together.

The 42-year-old has been engaged to Katia ‘for a while’, a rep for the Libertines star confirmed after quitting drugs and settling down in France

Rumours began circulating about the engagement after film editor and musician Katia was seen wearing a ring on that finger in pictures shared by the band Trampolene, who collaborated with Pete and Katia’s group the Puta Madres last year.

In a series of photos, Trampolene’s frontman Jack Jones sat between the couple, with his dog Luna on his lap.

As Katia petted Luna, a diamond ring could be seen on her left hand.

The couple, who started dating in 2016, have settled down together in Normandy, France, and while he was formerly known for his rock’n’roll lifestyle, Pete has adjusted to the quiet life rather well.

Cheese and naps make up his new lifestyle, as Pete recently 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.

‘I like experimenting, making cocktails with champagne, a bit of rum, orange juice, I’m coming across like a bit of an alcoholic, but I’m not — I like a nice glass of water.’

The Babyshambles star also recently revealed to BBC Scotland that he has been sober for over two years.

The F*** Forever singer said: ‘I’m in recovery I suppose, I’m two and a half years clean of heroin which is a big deal for me and yeah, I’m ticking along, writing music, still writing music.’

Prior to settling down with Katia, Pete was a headline staple due to his raucous partying, drug use and high-profile relationships.

Most famously, the musician dated Kate Moss on and off for two years after meeting at Kate’s 31st birthday party in early 2005.
