Pete Doherty engaged, but not to Kate Moss



Tbdirinalazareanu100507 We haven’t written about Pete Doherty for some time, mostly because we don’t listen to the Babyshambles (who does?) and we’re tired of him getting away with being tweaked all the time and never getting jail time.

But now that Women’s Wear Daily says he’s engaged to a model, well, we’ll hold the phone for that — especially since it’s not to Kate Moss! Reports are saying Irina Lazareanu (above), a Romania-born Canadian who once was a backup singer for Pete is the lucky girl, telling the fashion trade, “I very recently got engaged.”

Ironic, since it was Moss who apparently discovered Irina, who was the face of her Top Shop collection, People says. A source tells People that Irina “had a huge rock on her finger and when I asked her about it, she said she was engaged.”

Now, it’s entirely possible we’ll find out she’s engaged to someone else, but we’re in the gossip business, not the truth business (and it’s a nice distraction from druggie news).
