Doherty Taken To Clinic By Mum

LATEST: Troubled LIBERTINES star PETE DOHERTY was forced back into rehab to battle his drug addiction by his worried mother.

The crack cocaine user - who recently underwent treatment at THE PRIORY hospital in London - fled to France last week (ends28MAY04), heightening reports his spell in rehab had failed to curb his wild ways.

But upon hearing of Doherty's exile to the gallic country, his mum travelled from her home in Germany to be with her son, and after an emotional reunion, she whisked him into a nearby hospital.

A message on Doherty's official website BABYSHAMBLES.COM reads, " We have spoken to his mother who wants you to know that you shouldn't worry. She has taken him to a clinic in France and is safe and well."

And pals of the British singer hope his willingness to enter rehab again indicates he's desperate to beat his addiction.

A source says, "It's the best sign yet that Pete wants to get better. He's with his mum and he's in safe hands. Now we just have to wait until he sorts himself out."
