‘Unstable’ Pete Doherty ‘trashed’ £80,000 painting given to Kate Moss ‘in fit of rage’

Pete Doherty put his foot through an £80,000 painting in a “rage”.

Artist Kevin Sharkey, who earns around £4million a year from his abstract works, said he had given it to the singer’s then-girlfiend Kate Moss. The Irishman, who counts Bob Geldof, Courtney Love, and Matt Lucas among his clients, said of the landscape: “That f***er Pete Doherty, put his foot through it in a fit of rage one night.”

He added: “No idea why. He was a pretty unstable guy at the time.” Libertines rocker Doherty was dating the supermodel at the time, between 2005-2007. Kevin, 62, said: “In the last 12 months I’ve earned about €4.5million, up from €3million the year before.

“I have a collection of four paintings I’ll be selling to a single buyer in New York for €250,000 each. My earnings have been consistent over the years, and I’ve sold almost 11,000 paintings. I got €255 for the first one I sold, and €78,500 for one about six months ago.”
