Pete Doherty getting cosy with Sting’s daughter

If I were a parent, I could think of few things I would find more terrifying than the prospect of Pete Doherty ever getting near any of my children. Or my pets. Or my houseplants. Really, the thought of Pete anywhere near anything living is just too much for me to handle.

Singer Sting has reportedly hit the roof over news that his 17-year-old daughter Coco has been hanging out with Pete. A lot. Some of it has been in the studio (Coco is working on her debut CD), but the two spent a good deal of time together in a tent at the Glastonbury music festival last weekend – much to Sting’s chagrin.

The Police frontman reportedly went through the roof when it emerged 17-year-old Coco was within spitting distance of the celebrated junkie. A fellow Glastonbury festival-goer spotted the Babyshambles singer, 29, lying down in Coco’s tent at the music festival.

Pete and Coco Sumner’s friendship is blossoming after they met at a Soho jazz bar in London, and Pete has been helping her develop her songwriting and guitar skills. But the news that they were together at Glastonbury, where Pete played a solo set, seems to have been a step too far for Sting.

The onlooker said: ‘I was standing next to Coco’s tent after Pete had played his set, and one of her friends went to check on her. She unzipped the door, and Pete was lying outstretched in her tent. He looked very comfortable and was smoking something – the tent was full of smoke but it was impossible to tell what it was. He seemed pretty out of it, though.

‘Coco’s father isn’t too happy about her hanging around Pete because of his reputation, and hit the roof when he heard he had stayed in her tent.’

The source added: ‘Coco has definitely inherited her dad’s vocal skills and Pete has been raving about her talent. It’s pretty clear he has the hots for her too, which will only worry her dad more.’ While 56-year-old Sting, real name Gordon, and mum Trudy Styler, 53, will be pleased she is getting musical input from someone-as talented as Pete, we bet they hope that’s the only input he’s having. Otherwise Pete might quickly learn what Sting was singing about in The Police’s 1983 hit King Of Pain.

I’m glad Sting freaked out. Any parent that would be okay with their 17-year-old hanging out with Pete Doherty shouldn’t be allowed to have kids. Just looking at the guy, I’m afraid bugs would jump off of him. And really, that’s the kindest thing I can say. I really don’t think he should be allowed to come closer than 10 feet to anyone. I cannot even imagine how many communicable diseases that man is carrying.

I know Doherty supposedly has oodles of talent, but if I were Coco’s parents, that wouldn’t even come close to canceling out all the bad he can potentially do. I’d suggest they make Coco shower three times a day, just to be safe. I’ve heard soap is like kryptonite to Pete Doherty.

    with or without the living(?) dead interjection it’s still freaky (and illegal? i’m not up on US laws)

  3. Ron says:

    Wow. I expected Sting offspring to be kinda hot. Poor Coco.

  4. janepitt says:

    I know it’s harsh but all of his kids are kinda fug.

  5. He’s probably moving on to younger women now. Kate Moss is getting long in the tooth.

    Don’t make Papa Sting tantrically kick your druggy a$$, Pete.

  7. saintdevil says:


    I think this used up & washed out creature looks older than Kate.


  8. sue mac says:

    Love Pete…feel kinda bad about his drug use.One picture of this lost soul with his kitties……break your heart.

  9. Kate is a druggie, too. Not just Pete.

  10. Kevin says:

    Why would Sting have hot kids? Ever seen Trudy?

  11. bc says:

    you spelled “cozy” wrong

  12. Bina says:

    You forget that most celebrities look as good as they do with the help of a plastic surgeon. The kids inherit the pre-surgery features. Just look at Rumer Willis!

  13. hello says:

    Pictures of him with cats/mice/ animals of any sort make me furious because they remind me of the reports of his cat giving birth to kittens that were addicted to pot or heroin smoke. It makes me hate him and hope that he suffers a far more painful death than OD-ing.

    Wow. Harsh. I sound like I’m in PETA. I have no sympathy for him though.

    So fucking what?

    who gives a shit?

    Whats the big deal?

  15. Skank Basher says:

    She looks dirty and unkempt, like Amy Winehouse…Coco needs to wash her hair and fix her raccoon eyes! A “smokey” eye is fashionable, not a smeary eye. 🙄

  16. Jasmine Sahara says:

    Am so glad I never had a boyfriend like Pete Doherty. I feel sorry for Kate having an ex that goes out with anything that moves, he is so desperate it’s scarey!! Women be aware pete doherty’s on the move!!!

  17. Wonderful web page. I in addition have one and I admire various other web page managers.
