Pete Doherty - Pete Doherty Says Carl Doesn't Trust Him

Pete Doherty claims his Libertines bandmate Carl Barat doesn't trust him anymore.

The future of the 'Time for Heroes' band - who came together for a handful of reunion shows last year - looks bleak as the volatile relationship between the two frontmen is preventing them from having a full scale reunion.

In new documentary film 'There are no Innocent Bystanders', Pete says of his bandmate: "He doesn't trust me and hasn't trusted me for a long time, and as far as I can tell it's too late to do anything about it."

Carl understands Pete - who was sacked from the band in 2004 due to his drug use, with the band briefly continuing without him before splitting the same year - is upset at what happened between them but is adamant his mistrust is unfounded.

He added: "Pete, for understandable reasons is still very hurt about what's gone on. And I believe he doubts my love for the band and for all of it."

When asked if this was true, Carl replied: "No, it's really silly, and I wish he wouldn't. I am hurt by it. It's difficult."

Since the band - which also includes John Hassall and Gary Powell - split in 2004, Pete has formed another group, Babyshambles, and released a solo album, while Carl found success with the band Dirty Pretty Things before releasing a solo LP last year.
