London, Apr 19 : Life of junkie jailbird Pete Doherty couldn't get more worse than this. On the night of April 18, a plot had been made by heroin suppliers to cripple the singer.
The BabyShambles frontman owed money to the inmates, and so in order to take the revenge the lags had worked out the plot.
Now, citing the situation, the 29-year-old has been put into the segregation unit at tough Wormwood Scrubs prison in West London for his own safety.
Shocked Doherty was told by prison officers of the threats against him by lags who gave him drugs on tick - and is said to have gone "white with fear".
"There are more drugs in here than outside," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
"Pete is being given methadone to help wean him off smack but he is still desperate for it and has got well out of his depth. He has been writing IOU's to the dealers and getting his gear on credit. But he has not paid up and they have realised they have been stitched up.
"There are some very heavy people who have lost money and want to hurt him bad. They won't kill him - but it will be a pan of boiling water job with sugar in it, to scar him good and proper," the source added.
