Doherty Jumps Into Stranger's Car To Escape 'Demons'

Troubled rocker PETE DOHERTY mistakenly jumped into a paparazzo's car to escape his "demons", according to reports. The Babyshambles star - who has a history of drug abuse and has been arrested and jailed for possession of illegal substances - approached photographer Sam Kelly for a ride in his motor near girlfriend Kate Moss' north London home. He allegedly told Kelly, "The demons are coming! The demons are coming to get me," before jumping into the car. Doherty's bizarre antics also involved telling the snapper he was going to be "bigger than Sir Paul MCCartney", before he borrowed his mobile phone to dial an unused number. Kelly says, "His eyes were rolling in his head and it looked like he was dribbling. He asked me for a lift and kept saying, 'I'm late' although he never said what for. I could see the sweat pouring off him and he just started mumbling to himself. He was talking about how he doesn't like people wearing Kate's clothes and how he and Kate want to have kids together. And he said he is going to be a bigger music legend than Sir Paul MCCartney. "He asked to use my mobile to make a couple of calls. He was talking away on the phone, but I couldn't tell if there was anyone on the other end. When I checked the phone later the number he had dialled wasn't recognised. Pete carried on mumbling until I slowed for a corner, then he just jumped out and ran off. He was in a real state."
