Pete Doherty formally charged with drug possession.

Pete Doherty, the bad boy of British rock notorious for his on-off affair with supermodel Kate Moss, has been charged with possession of cocaine and heroin.

London's Metropolitan Police said the 26-year-old Babyshambles frontman, who was arrested November 30, was formally charged Monday under the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act for possession of so-called Class A hard drugs.

He is to appear at Ealing magistrates court in west London on Wednesday, amid rumours that he invited fans at a live gig Monday night in Camden, north London to turn up and join him in court.

"If there is an incident, then we will deal with it accordingly," a police spokeswoman said.

Moss has yet to return to Britain from the United States after fuzzy images of her apparently taking cocaine at a Babyshambles recording session in September were published in a London newspaper.

She lost several lucrative modeling contracts, checked into a rehab clinic stateside, and reportedly dumped Doherty for a younger man. Police have said they would like to question her if she ever comes back home.

Babyshambles were slated to perform in Sheffield, northern England, later Tuesday and the central English city of Stoke-on-Trent on Wednesday in support of their new album "Down in Albion".

Rolling Stone magazine has called the album "a beguiling, infuriating mess".
