Former LIBERTINES star Pete Doherty's passport has been confiscated by a London store, after he failed to pay for a pair of curtains.
The singer - who is touring with side band Babyshambles after being forced out of The Libertines because of his drug addictions - tried to buy the curtains for his tourbus, at east London shop ROCKIT on Wednesday.
When he found himself short of cash by $36 (GBP20) staff agreed to accept his passport as a temporary deposit - but the rocker never returned.
A store source says, "At the end of the day, the till was still short. So ANNA, who works here, put in GBP20 of her own money and took the passport."19/11/2004 14:07
