Pete Doherty Remembered, by Laura McLaughlin

pete-doherty-pants.JPGPETE Doherty has, reportedly, been making friends with Laura McLaughlin.

She tells the News of the World: “The baby is Peter’s. There is no doubt about that. I was a virgin when I met Peter and when we had sex.”

Does Ms McLaughlin believe her parents might think better of her if they learn via the pages of the tabloid press that the first time their daughter had sex it was with a known drug user and celebrity?

Stephen and Helen McLaughlin – “they run a multi-million pound roofing business in Scotland” – offer no comment.

Says Laura of Doherty: “He knows about the baby. I told him I was pregnant the moment I found out shortly after Christmas. We are only in contact by phone.”

If only she had only contacted Doherty by phone. Indeed, a phone with a condom pulled over it might be more hygienic. And then she should consider earmuffs, holding the phone at arm’s length and a scouring brush . But things got more intimate for the girl billed as god-daughter to Sir Alex Ferguson, the puce-faced manager of Manchester United.

Says Lola: “He was a very laid-back lover and very gentle with me. He wasn’t into anything kinky or strenuous and that suited me down to the ground seeing as it was my first time having sex.”

And then the condom split. Pregnant, she told Doherty. Says Lola: “His apathy has been traumatic for me. I wanted the baby to be as big a deal to him as it was to me. But it wasn’t. One minute he is excited and telling me, ‘How good-looking is our baby going to be?’ the next minute he’s saying, ‘You deal with it’.”

One minute she likes him being laid back, the next it’s an issue.

A spokesman for Doherty says: “Pete says he doesn’t know who this girl is.”

Which, to the best of Doherty’s recollection, might well be true…
