Doherty: Amy and I were lovers

Los Angeles - Pete Doherty claims he had a secret romance with Amy Winehouse.

The troubled rocker - who has struggled with drug addiction - revealed he and Amy were lovers before her death in July 2011 at the age of just 27 but he admitted things ended badly between them.

He said: ''This is difficult for me to admit, but yes, it's true - Amy and I were lovers.

"I loved her then and, well, I still do today.

"But towards the end, as only lovers can, she became quite mean and cruel to me.

"She didn't suffer fools ... and believe me, she had a mean right hook.''

Pete's relationship with Kate Moss also ended badly but the supermodel - who is now married to Jamie Hince - recently reached out to him to see how he is.

Pete added: ''I got a call from Kate a couple of weeks ago, which came as a surprise as we haven't exchanged a word since it ended. And believe me, it ended nastily.

''But she was friendly and just asked me what I was up to.

"She wanted to know why I hadn't written any songs recently and whether I was still taking drugs.

"She said she was staying clean and that she was very happily married.

''It came as a huge relief to hear from her and I felt a weight lift off my shoulders.

"It was a really important call because it put a few unresolved issues to bed for me.

"She told me that despite everything that had happened between us, she was still rooting for me and that was nice.

"It means a lot to me to know that.''

      Agreed. What amazing timing too. Funeral guest? Condolences to the family? No - interview deals for a christmas bonus.
