Mullord, who allegedly leaked video footage of Doherty's on-off girlfriend KATE MOSS snorting cocaine, appears in the video for new single DOWN IN ALBION - but his face has been partially hidden.
Mullord is convinced Doherty's record label ROUGH TRADE is behind the outrage - as the drug-addled frontman would never stoop so low.
He says, "It is annoying. It is so petty.
"Pete didn't see the final cut until it was too late. That is what I have been told anyway.
"Pete says it is a pain in the a**se but it's too late."
Video maker ROGER POMPHREY insists the label is at fault, adding, "Pete isn't a vindictive person and I don't think he would have ordered it."
