God, this is so dreadful, it's like his tenth rehab in eighteen months. It's an intense philosophical problem this drug stuff with Doherty, and she throws him out and takes him back with some perversely romantic regularity that I secretly admire.
It seems so integral to his existence getting high, really twined around him in some hateful way....She's lending a lot of power to him by checking in with him, plus they won't have to sneak off on the grounds and get it on like they were caught doing at some other posh rehab center last summer...and you know it's fucking cold in London.
Let us now pause to admire the name of the center they are both in: The Cabio Nightingale. I said here on the Staircase earlier that they always pick rehab centers with names like cheap perfumes....
"Doherty, 27, has been battling serious drug addiction for years and was understood to be receiving in-patient treatment at the Capio.
Kate, 33. left the hospital yesterday but was expected back to join Doherty in therapy sessions.
Yesterday one of Kate’s assistants was seen delivering to the hospital what appeared to be groceries and computer gear.
The odd couple have weathered a stormy on-off relationship for more than two years, with Kate constantly struggling to contain Doherty’s wild behaviour.
She ordered him home from a romantic trip to Thailand last Christmas after he was accused of sparking a drug-fuelled row with a taxi driver.
Several stints in both British and US rehab clinics have so-far failed to curb Doherty’s craving for hard drugs.
Pals have warned him — and Kate — that he will kill himself with an overdose if the downward spiral continues."
