KATE GIVES HEART TO DRUGGIE
January 27, 2005
' pals are worried over her hot new romance with a rock musician known as England's "most famous drug addict."
Moss, 31, hooked up with ex-Libertines frontman
, 25, at her birthday bash earlier this month. The bad boy Brit rocker, a huge star in the U.K. who reportedly has a $1,500-a-day crack and heroin habit, was kicked out of the Libertines last year after failing to conquer his addiction.
"Kate's friends think this is a really bad idea," a pal of the supermodel told PAGE SIX's
Jared Paul Stern
. "He's a bad influence. They're really worried about her little daughter."
Doherty, whose mentor is
of the Clash, has a new band, Babyshambles. He spent two months in jail for burglarizing a former bandmate and has failed to make it through rehab.
Moss, who had a baby girl,
, with magazine editor
in 2002 (they've since parted ways), tried to overcome her own addictions with a stint at London's Priory clinic in 1998. But her love of partying continues apace. Misadventures like an incident when she broke her toe last September suggest she hadn't curbed her wild ways.
A rep for Moss' agency, IMG, said they do not discuss their models' private lives.
The relationship with Doherty has Moss pals like
in a tizzy. "Pete's not the sort of guy you'd wish for your best friend," Frost told British magazine Closer. "Kate's had a history of partying hard, and the two of them together would be a terrible idea. [She] needs a guy who will anchor her like Jefferson did. Pete is very wild."
In fact, Doherty's manager,
, told the London Guardian he's not sure how long Doherty will stay alive given his self-destructive lifestyle.
Doherty himself is optimistic, however, about his romance with Moss. "I'm kicking drugs for her," he told British TV show "Orange Playlist" in an interview airing Feb. 17.
"I've really found love with Kate. I think it will last," Doherty insisted. "She's good for me because she's got a beautiful soul and I think I can trust her . . . I believe her when she says she loves me and I know I mean it when I say I love her. We got each other's initial tattooed in little hearts." The London Sun reports Moss has already introduced Doherty to her family.
