Pete Doherty is ENGAGED to girlfriend Katia de Vidas

Pete Doherty is engaged to his longtime girlfriend Katia de Vidas.

A representative for the star confirmed to MailOnline that the singer, 42, popped the question to the film editor, after she was seen sporting a sparkling new ring in an Instagram post.

Katia’s new engagement ring could be seen in images shared by the Welsh band Trampolene, who collaborated with Pete last year.

The snaps showed the band’s frontman Jack Jones alongside Pete and Katia playing with his dog.

One image showed Katia leaning in to kiss the pet, with a new ring taking pride of place on her engagement finger, and the post was captioned: ‘Luna & the Puta Madres xXx.’

A representative for Pete confirmed that he and Katia, who have been together since 2012, have been engaged ‘for a while.’

It comes just days after Pete revealed he’d been clean of heroin for two years in an interview with BBC Scotland.

He said: ‘I’m in recovery I suppose I’m two and a half years clean of heroin which is a big deal for me and yeah I’m ticking along writing music, still writing music.’

Pete and Katia, who have been dating for several years, collaborated with Trampolene in May 2020 for the single Uncle Brian’s Abattoi, which was released during the Covid lockdown. 

In recent years Pete, has overhauled his lifestyle and has been living a much quiter life in France with Katia. 

He shot to fame in the mid-2000s as the frontman for indie band The Libertines, but found nationwide attention when he dated supermodel Kate Moss.

The pair met at her 31st birthday bash in Jauary 2005, and he declared soon after that he’d ‘really found love.’

Their turbulent romance briefly ended when Pete failed to complete a stint in rehab in Arizona, USA, with Kate saying at the time she has ‘various personal issues I need to address.’

He even drew a portrait of himself and Kate using crayons and his own blood in 2005. 

Pete also famously scrawled ‘I love Kate 4 eva’ on the windscreen of his Jaguar after leaving court following a drug-related offence.

He and Kate eventually reunited and attended rehab together, but they were seen in many public rows before they finally split in July 2007 after getting engaged.

Pete then famously branded her a ‘nasty old rag’ in an interview with Metro after they split for good in 2007, which came months after he proposed to her.

Pete has a son, Astile, 18, from his relationship with Lisa Moorish, and it was reported in 2009 that the singer was once-banned from seeing his son because of his drug habit.

But after going to rehab and getting clean, he became a much more hands-on dad.

Lisa told Metro in 2009: ‘Peter has on-and-off problems with his recovery so it was a really difficult decision to make. 

‘But when he came out of rehab last year, and started to get his life in order I thought the time was right. I want Astile to have a dad.’

Pete also has a daughter, Aisling, with model Lindi Hingston, who shared news of her daughter’s arrival a year after she was born.

A week after Linda shared the news, Pete said: ‘The little girl was two months premature. I said I’d try to be there for the birth… Yeah, she’s mine.’

While his most famous relationship was with Kate, Pete also had a fling with the late singer Amy Winehouse before her death in 2011.

Speaking to The Mail On Sunday in 2012, he said: ‘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.’ 

In the past, Pete has pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine.

In 2012, he was thrown out of a luxury rehab clinic in Thailand after claims he was a bad influence on other patients and did not try hard enough to kick his heroin habit.

The once-troubled star has quit heroin and ketamine but revealed he still enjoying whipping up a cocktail.

Peter said earlier this year that he has been doing a lot of sleeping, eating French cheese and drinking water following his move to Normandy. 

He is generally enjoying a much slower pace of life these days and has reportedly taken to the bowls-style sport, pétanque. 

One local told The Sun: ‘Peter is no longer a bad boy. He’s relaxing, settling down and loving the goods things in life.

‘We introduced him to pétanque and he’s fallen in love with the game. He often joins our club nights when we play.’

Mikael Grondin, who runs the bakery, said of Pete – who has slimmed down in recent months – ‘He is always popping in for a bag of Bout de Choux (creamy little cabbage), which is a pastry filled with cream. Maybe that’s why he’s put on weight but, don’t worry, these will be good for him.’

And Pete revealed recently that he especially enjoys cheese on toast and that his ‘guilty pleasure’ is sleeping after he used to stay up for ‘six days.’

In July, following the easing of the UK’s Covid restrictions, Pete showcased his slimmed-down figure as he took to the stage for a performance in Coventry.

In an interview in 2006, Nikki also revealed that Pete was one of her clients during her brief stint as a £500-per-hour escort.

She told MailOnline: ‘He was my first booking. He often used the agency. I went round to a flat in London. It was a complete s*** hole full of other druggies playing guitars and just hanging out.
