British rock star Pete Doherty has reportedly found love with MASSIVE ATTACK singer Dot Allison.

The former Libertines frontman is planning to move into Allison's apartment - after falling for her following a musical collaboration last month (AUG04), when he invited her to sing on his solo tour.

A source says, "Dot really cares for Pete in a big way.

"It's far more than just a music industry fling, it's more like an old-fashioned romance.

"They have been writing love poems to each other as well as phoning and texting."

As for his constant battle with drugs, the source adds, "She has vowed to stand by him and try to help him beat his addictions."
