Pete Doherty has been sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to cocaine possession.

The Libertines frontman was arrested in January following the death of Robin Whitehead at a party in London. Writing in a blog online Doherty claimed he had not supplied Whitehead with drugs.

'I did not lead her astray at all,' he wrote. 'I loved her. I left her the day before she died pissed off that I wouldn't give her any drugs. Print that you twisted bastards. Print that she asked me for years to inject her, to score for her, to sleep with her on acid, to get into blackmagic sex rituals… never, never, never.'

'Once I banged her up, four years ago, when I found her doing it to herself with a blunt needle and dirty spoon and I made sure she did it safely as she was doing it anyway. That was four years ago. After that I refused to allow her to use crack or heroin or drink to excess which was her main danger.'

Doherty was due to play a show in Glasgow tonight.
