Moss And Doherty Wedding That Never Was

Controversial British top model Kate Moss was Tusday reported to have tied the knot on a Thai beach with pop singer Pete Doherty, notorious for his drug-taking. However, the rumors were quickly denied by her spokesman.

Stuart Higgins said Moss, 32, was vacationing in Thailand, but didn't marry Babyshambles frontman Doherty.

"Contrary to various entirely false media reports today, there has not been any kind of marriage ceremony in Thailand. She is on holiday," Higgins said.

Initially, it was reported that Moss, 32, and the frontman of the group Babyshambles, 27, "married" during a New Year break on the island of Phuket, British tabloids claimed. The couple were photographed celebrating with champagne at a beach villa. Moss was pictured barefoot in a silver dress, while Doherty wore a black suit and his trademark matching trilby hat.

The leading British tabloids reported that Moss and Doherty had held the ceremony in the Thai resort of Phuket. Neither the Sun nor the Daily Mirror provided sources for the alleged information. The Mirror quoted an unnamed friend of Moss as saying the ceremony was an expression of the couple's mutual devotion, reports AP.

Wedding services including Buddhist prayers, the pouring of blessed water and entwining of flower garlands are popular among tourists to the romantic Thai island. However, such ceremonies are not legally binding and participants must still undertake a civil service in their own countries, UK for the celebrity couple.

Junkie Doherty is currently serving a two-year supervision order for various drug offences.

On 15 September 2005, London's Daily Mirror ran front page and inside photos that seemed to show Moss snorting several lines of cocaine at a Babyshambles recording session. Within a short time of publication, Moss lost major modeling contracts with several international companies. Moss made a comeback just months after the cocaine scandal broke. Today Kate Moss makes more money than before the scandal. Her 2006 earnings add up to £30 million.

Kate Moss dumped Doherty temporarily after he checked himself out of Meadows Clinic in Arizona, failing to complete a program for drug rehabilitation. Moss herself underwent successful treatment there in October and had urged Doherty to seek the same treatment himself. Doherty claims that their separation involved other issues, telling the The Sun newspaper that Moss left him because, “I can’t buy her diamonds and my dick is too small.”

Katherine Moss is British and while in high school she was not noted for her academic success. According to Vermorel's book "Addicted to Love: Kate Moss" she gained one C (in Science) and all the rest were Ds, Es, and Fs at GCSE level. However, she did excel at sports. She was discovered at the age of 14 by the founder of Storm Model Agency in 1988, at the JFK Airport in New York City. Corinne Day shot black and white photographs of Kate for “The Face” magazine when she was 15. Moss then went on to become something of an anti-supermodel of the 90s in contrast to the supermodels at the time, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell.

She was the star of a highly publicized campaign for Calvin Klein, including posing nude in ads for its perfume brand, Obsession. Some have even blamed her for popularizing the dangerous "heroin chic" look. Storm Model Agency lists Moss as being 173 cm (5' 8") but it is widely known that she is shorter than that, about 5' 7".
