Pete Doherty tried committing suicide!

entertainment Updated: Sep 07, 2009 18:56 IST

British rocker Pete Doherty has revealed that he tried committing suicide on the night of his 30th birthday.

The Babyshambles frontman tried to jump from the roof of a hotel in France on March 12 this year, as he got depressed on reaching the landmark age.

"''I had this bash in Paris and it was an absolute disgrace. I just made a bit of an idiot out of myself,” Contactmusic quoted him as having told Elle magazine.

“I don't even know exactly what happened but I ended up trying to throw myself off the top of the hotel. I wasn't happy at all about being 30.

"I went through a bottle of vodka. They presented me with this cake and I pushed it in the chef's face who'd just made it for me. Then the chef and the security guards were chasing me around. I think I escaped unscathed," he added.
