Inside Pete Doherty’s romantic life with stunning girlfriend Katia De Vidas with their dog and two cats in France

PETE Doherty might have been rock's bad boy in the 00s but The Libertines frontman favours a quieter pace these days.

New pictures in The Sun today revealed the singer, 42, has ditched his hedonistic lifestyle for a quiet life in France.

Now The Sun can reveal inside his domestic life with his girlfriend and Puta Madres bandmate Katia De Vidas.

The couple have an idyllic life in Etretat, a tiny rural town popular with Parisian holidaymakers, with their dog and two cats.

Katia documents their adventures on her Instagram page and sharing a picture of their dog she called him her "best furry friend".

The pooch wears a torn bandanna around its neck in the red white and blue of the French flag.

"Her spirit animal is a baby elephant," Katia added.

The couple also share two sweet tabby cats.

Recently the loved-up pair have been enjoying alone time together during the coronavirus pandemic.

In one shot the couple share a kiss at home, and in another Pete smokes a cigar as they take their dog out for a walk in the city.

"Love in Time of Covid 19," Katia wrote alongside a sweet snap of them kissing in a garden with a stunning view over a French valley.

Katia plays keyboard in Puta Madres – Pete's third musical project after The Libertines and Babyshambles.

She also shares photos of them touring together with their band.

Katia also revealed she battled cancer last year as she shared a post to celebrate being cancer free.

"My cancer treatment would have been very different would have I known about it a year later," she wrote.

"Thanks to amazing doctors and the love around me I killed the fucker

In his heyday, guitarist Pete, who used to front The Libertines, was famed for his drug addiction and tempestuous relationships — dating the likes of model Kate Moss, tragic singer Amy Winehouse and Big Brother star Nikki Grahame.

Clearly Katia, his partner for several years, is having a positive impact.

A source close to him said: “While lockdown has been tough for so many people, Pete is honestly the happiest he’s ever been.

“He used to live a fast-paced, hedonistic lifestyle. He was the epitome of rock and roll. But the relaxed pace of life suits him more.

“He and Katia have been spending time in Étretat, a coastal town popular with visiting Parisians.

“He still has a hand in music as that’s his number one passion, of course, but going to France has allowed him to relax.

“Over the last few months he has taken his foot off the pedal and has really been enjoying his downtime.

“They spend lots of time cooking and walking the dog. It’s a very genteel lifestyle in comparison to the way he used to live.”

Doherty has a son, Astile, 17, with singer Lisa Moorish, and daughter Aisling, nine, with South African model Lindi Hingston.

He previously admitted that “part of him” would like to kick his Class A drug habit “just so I can feel things”.

He said: “There are so many people in my life who deserve better. It really is a mental deficiency.

“I’d be a force to be reckoned with (off the drugs). I’d have money and self-respect and clean hands.”
