Singer Marianne Faithfull has alleged that her ex-boyfriend was responsible for Jim Morrison's death.

In an interview with Mojo , Faithfull claimed that her then-boyfriend, heroin dealer Jean de Breiteuil, delivered drugs to the Doors frontman's apartment in Paris in 1971.

Speaking about her decision to stay behind at their hotel, Faithfull said: "I could intuitively feel trouble. I thought, 'I'll take a few Tuinal and I won't be there'. And he went to see Jim Morrison and killed him.

"I mean I'm sure it was an accident. Poor bastard. The smack was too strong? Yeah. And he died. And I didn't know anything about this.

"Anyway, everybody connected to the death of this poor guy is dead now. Except me."

Faithfull will release new album Give My Love to London on September 29.
