19 – Pete Doherty
Jumping from the 1980s into the next decade, Pete Doherty gained fame in the 1990s as the co-frontman for The Libertines. Hailing from England, Doherty was also part of an indie band known as the Babyshmables but his music wasn’t exactly what led him to the height of fame.
In 2005, Doherty stole the spotlight as tabloids and pop culture media outlets lit up with news that he and supermodel Kate Moss (who we’ll see later on the list) were dating
Despite the fame from his very public relationship with Moss, Doherty couldn’t shake his drug habit which has been easy to document over the years. With a rap sheet a mile long filled with crimes like car theft and possession of marijuana, heroin and crack cocaine, the 36-year-old rocker worked as a drug dealer at one time simply to pay for his drug habit.
Needless to say, he’s spent his fair share of time in jail and rehab with the latest update coming in January 2015 that he had successfully completed a three-month treatment. We hope he sticks with it!
