The Babyshambles rocker is not interested in a 50 per cent discount at DFS. He went to an antiques fair in Paris and bought... five crack pipes.
The collectors' items were all from the 1930s, when they were used for lab experiments.
But what former junkie Pete wanted to know from the stallholder was whether the pipes still worked. A source said: "He loved them and said he would take them all ? then asked the guy if the pipes could still be used to smoke with.
"Pete had a stunning girl on his arm who looked the spit of Kate Moss and he was very friendly, polite and funny."
So much so, he even posed for pictures with the antiques dealer and fans.
The French police must have been on their caf? au lait and baguette break.
