rocker Pete Doherty
fought back tears at a London gig on Tuesday, after burying his beloved pet cat just hours before he was due to go on stage.
The star apologized for arriving late to the show at the capital's Brixton Mass venue, telling fans he had been forced to lay the animal to rest at the roadside before heading to the performance. Before his arrival at the gig, the eager rock crowd was told the star was "en route" due to his kittens acting "crazy".
And, once he arrived, the star told fans told fans the tragic reason for his tardiness: "Sorry I'm late. But considering I've had to bury one of my cats at the roadside I've done pretty well to be here."
Doherty was spotted taking his beloved pet cat to a vet near his home in Wiltshire, England last week.
