The former bandmates went their separate ways in 2004 following a stint in jail for Doherty after he was convicted of burgling Barat’s house. Since the Libertines split, Barat has formed the band Dirty Pretty Things and Doherty has gone on to front Babyshambles and become notorious for his drug-fuelled antics and for his doomed relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. The West End musical would be the first time the pair has worked together in four years, though sources say it does not signal any plans to reform the band.
Last year, Doherty reportedly expressed interest in penning a stage musical about star-crossed lovers in an effort to woo back his one-time fiancée Kate Moss (See The Goss, 7 Aug 2007).
