Pete Doherty was seen eating chips when he should have been on stage.
The Libertines cancelled two of their shows after the 36-year-old singer went AWOL before one of their concerts but a source has now claimed that the star was delivered room service to his hotel near Coventry on Thursday (10.09.15) evening when he should have been performing at the Electric Ballroom in, Camden, London.
They told The Sun newspaper: ''Pete was apparently in very good spirits. He was naked and laughing and joking.
''He claimed he simply chose not to play and was said to have found the whole situation hilarious. Fans are going to be raging when they find out he was just ordering room service when he should have been on stage.''
Rumours initially suggested Pete - who is a recovering drug addict - had locked himself in a pub toilet but the band quickly released a statement to confirm he was ''safe''.
Taking to Facebook, they wrote: ''We can assure everyone that Peter is safe. Clearly this is a very private matter in many respects, but we also feel it necessary to let people know he is ok.''
Pete Doherty and the Libertines resumed their live dates at the Lollapalooza Festival in Berlin, Germany on Saturday (12.09.15).
