The tabloid that printed images allegedly showing Kate Moss snorting cocaine
has turned over the videotape to police, a senior staffer at the newspaper said
Kate Moss is seen
in a recent ad for Virgin Mobile. The irreverent spot is seen as part of a
comeback after a drug scandal that threatened her modeling career.
Moss lost contracts with H&M,
Burberry and Chanel after the Daily Mirror published the pictures in September.
The 31-year-old supermodel later apologized to ¡°all the people I have let down¡±
and checked into an Arizona rehabilitation clinic.
Police said at the time they would investigate the allegations, taking into
account the impact on impressionable young people.
No one at the Daily Mirror was willing to comment on the record, but a senior
staffer who refused to be identified said the newspaper had turned over the
secretly captured video to police under a judge¡¯s orders. It allegedly showed
Moss taking drugs with her then-boyfriend Pete Doherty, the troubled singer of
British rock band Babyshambles.
Police refused to comment.
Moss has begun a career comeback. She shot an advertising campaign for
designer Roberto Cavalli, and she was to appear in a television ad for cell
phone-brand Virgin Mobile.
French Vogue devoted its December issue to Moss, with the cover tag line,
The Vogue issue was Moss¡¯ third major magazine cover since the cocaine
scandal broke. She appeared on the November issue of W and the December edition
of Vanity Fair, which asked in a headline, ¡°Can she come back?¡±
