Irish music mogul Louis Walsh has launched a scathing verbal attack on troubled British musician Pete Doherty and supermodel Kate Moss.
The Westlife and Girls Aloud manager insists Doherty's only talent is generating publicity and taking drugs.
And he is highly scornful of the relationship Doherty and Moss share, saying the couple are not as high-profile or legendary as they think they are.
Walsh says, "I think he's got a little bit of talent but he only gets this publicity because he's a drug addict and goes out with a model.
"This thing with Kate Moss is not exactly (MICK) JAGGER and Marianne Faithful, is it? They're a poor man's versions of that, maybe.
"He doesn't sell out big venues, he doesn't even sell out small venues because he doesn't bother turning up."
