Carl Barat has spoken out to quash rumours he's set to reunite with his former The Libertines bandmate Pete Doherty, insisting they recently met up only for a "hug and a coffee".
The cult British band split in 2004 but reunited last year (10) to play two festival sets in the U.K., but Barat later insisted their comeback would not be continued.
Earlier this month (Aug11), he posted a picture of a meeting with Babyshambles frontman Doherty on Twitter.com, sparking rumours they are planning another round of reunion shows - but Barat has now ended the speculation by insisting there is no future for the band.
He tells rock magazine NME, "It wasn't a Libertines thing, just an overdue hug and a coffee, rebuilding old bridges. I'm off to do two films and an opera from now to June, he's doing another Babyshambles record and finishing his film. We've an amazing friendship ahead of us."
