Pete Doherty's latest bust has landed him back in the big house.

The British musician, who's certainly no stranger to substance abuse or the inside of a cell, has received a six-month jail sentence after pleading guilty to cocaine possession.

The charge stemmed from his arrest in March of last year after the Babyshambles frontman was suspected of providing drugs to Robyn Whitehead, a 27-year-old heiress-turned-filmmaker who was working on a documentary about Doherty when she was found dead from a suspected overdose.

The singer, who was reportedly working on a comeback album with his old band The Libertines, was forced to cancel a scheduled concert in Scotland this evening after receiving his sentence.
