Pete Doherty Gets Paid By Phone Hackers

Written by John Ritchie on February 9, 2012

Pete Doherty will be paid an undisclosed amount in damages from News Of The World after they admitted to hacking his phone last year, nme reports.

The former Libertines frontman was just one of 15 settlements News Of The World agreed to this week. Among the 15 settlements there were football players and government officials who all had their phones hacked during the hacking scandal in 2011.

Pop singer Charlotte Church has not agreed to a settlement and will continue to press ahead with a legal case.

Doherty has recently been playing intimate solo shows in London.
