The Libertines and Babyshambles frontman, who has had a well-publicised battle with crack cocaine and heroin, travelled to Chiang Mai in Thailand in a bid to finally shake his addictions.

Pete sought expert treatment at The Cabin, which has a high success rate of recovery but costs patients £7,200 a month.

But Xfm.com have reported that staff at the facility have given him a “therapeutic discharge” and asked him to leave the centre early.

Allegedly the singer was being a “disruptive influence” on other patients, although Programme Director Alastair Mordey has since said that the parting with Pete was "amicable".

The rocker had cancelled a string of summer festivals and gigs to attend the remote jungle clinic in a last ditch attempt to get himself clean, following the death of his good friend Amy Winehouse last year.
