Just when we thought Kate Moss had finally found love and settled down after a string of failed relationships, the 41-year-old model is reportedly back on the market following her split from hubby Jamie Hince. While there has been no official announcement on their break-up at the time of going to print, Jamie has already been spotted getting cosy with one of Kate’s model colleagues!
Kate and Jamie, 44, who haven’t been photographed together in months, are said to have had an “explosive” fight that led to the split. A close source told The Sun that their marriage of four years is over, having been in trouble for months: “They are properly over as a married couple. It’s gone past the point of no return.” The insider explained: “Jamie’s just waiting for Kate to move forward with divorce proceedings. Neither is in any hurry but they both suspect there won’t be a reconciliation. They accept they’ll probably have to make some sort of statement but don’t want to feel forced into anything,” the source added. Friends claim one of the main reasons behind the split is Kate’s jealousy over Jamie’s friendships with other people.
Judging by new pictures taken this week, she’s certainly got reason to be jealous. Just days after rumours of the separation started circulating, Jamie was snapped getting cosy with Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Stam in Los Angeles. Jessica – who, at 29 years-old is 12 years Kate’s junior – passionately hugged Jamie while stroking his cheeks outside a bar in West Hollywood earlier this week following his concert with The Kills at the El Rey Theatre. Making matters even worse, Jessica has known Kate for years and has previously worked alongside her in various modelling campaigns.
Understandably, Kate is devastated and has turned to ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack for support. Despite their split in 2003, Kate and Jefferson, who is the father of daughter Lila Grace, have remained close. “Jefferson has been Kate’s rock through all of this,” said an insider. “He has been comforting her and helping her through her problems with Jamie.” Jefferson even accompanied Kate and Lila Grace to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls last month. “Jamie was supposed to go [on the trip] but Jefferson came instead,” claimed
Shortly after Jamie was snapped getting cosy with Jessica, Kate fled the UK and asked Jefferson to accompany her. The supermodel was seen leaving her London home alongside Jefferson and daughter Lila Grace to catch a private plane to an unknown location. It’s been rumoured that she’s been hiding in Thailand, which she previously visited on a wellness break, or in the Caribbean.
Jamie, on the other hand, is still on tour with The Kills and was snapped looking dishevelled at Los Angeles’ LAX airport while having an argument on the phone. Interestingly, he was still wearing his wedding ring. However, according to The Mirror newspaper, Jamie wants a quick divorce and insists he doesn’t have any plans to go after her estimated $26 million fortune. Sources told the paper that Jamie simply wants to keep his collection of vintage vino and considers it to be “an investment” alongside his precious collection of precious antique books.
He’d better hope Kate hasn’t already smashed the bottles and set the books alight, then.
