Drug Dealer's Hiv Fears For Doherty

British rocker PETE DOHERTY's former drug dealer has begged the troubled singer to have an HIV test, after he was diagnosed with the virus.

OWEN O'DWYER started selling heroin to the ex-LIBERTINE three years ago (03), and he tells British newspaper The Sun the pair regularly injected it together.

After O'Dwyer's recent diagnosis with HIV, the 33-year-old has been told by doctors to contact anyone he may have shared drug paraphernalia with.

Reformed addict O'Dwyer says, "I'm terrified Pete might have HIV.

"I had no idea I had the disease when we were doing drugs - I want him to know this was not intentional.

"We didn't share needles but we kept our needles in the same glass. I'm worried blood on the needles may have mixed."

Doherty, 26, fled an Arizona rehabilitation clinic after an unsuccessful attempt to get clean last month (NOV05). Shortly after returning to Britain, supermodel KATE MOSS ended their stormy 11-month relationship.
