As previously reported on Spinner, Whitehead was found dead of a suspected drug overdose at a flat in Homerton, east London in January. The flat was occupied by one-time Doherty collaborator Peter "Wolfman" Wolfe -- the pair scored a 2004 hit with 'For Lovers' -- though he denied the heiress had taken drugs at the flat.
It is understood that Doherty was questioned by police on Friday (March 19) and attended the interview by appointment. Wolfe and the flat's owner, Gill Samworth, were both arrested on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice.
A third person, musician Alan Wass, was arrested last Tuesday (March 16) on suspicion of supplying drugs. All four have been bailed to return in April.
Doherty's 2010 has so far been plagued by trouble. In January, he was fined over £750 ($1200) for bringing heroin into a courtroom while more recently, the hapless singer was banned from driving once again after allowing his manager, Andrew Boyd, to use his car despite being uninsured. Boyd is currently serving a one-year jail sentence after being involved in a hit-and-run incident while driving Doherty's car.
