Pete Doherty Reacts to Ledger's Death

1/23/2008 1:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Troubled rockwreck Pete Doherty was approached in Germany about Heath Ledger's death -- and the only response he could muster (after being told it was probably drug related) was to blankly stare and genuflect. Perhaps he was considering his own wayward path.


Watch as the news hits Pete -- perhaps a little too close to home.

Genuflect means to go down on one knee, TMZ. He was crossing himself, but seemed to still be standing on both feet.

If you watch the video again Pete thinks Heath died because of a TRUCK not drugs. Listen to him right after the reporter or photographer tells him how Heath died, in fairness to Pete the person telling him the news didn't exactly sound like he said the word drugs.

As already mentioned, he's not genuflecting, he's crossing himself, which is what all respectful Catholics do when they hear of a death, especially a unexpected and premature one.

Did they even know each other? I am not a fan of Pete but if he did not know Heath Ledger then why should be upset over his death? I mean, come on now. I saw a few movies he did but I am not going to over react to his death and act like we were best buds.

genuflect also means to show respect

maybe the tmz staff thought it was when he did that catholic cross crap on his chest?

Why ask Peter? Ledger was Aussie and Pete's a Brit. What an odd question to ask him.

Good wishes to Peter for continuing his battle against his addictions. He's looking healthy. Hang in there.

Pete did not genuflect, he blessed himself. In the name of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit - it's a prayer and a blessing for Heath's soul.
