It is from Pete Doherty’s book “A Likely Lad” that we come to know more about Pete and Kate’s love affair. At the same time, he has also mentioned why he decided to opt for a break-up. “I’d been pretty debauched before I met Kate, but this was a whole new thing,” Pete says.
As per the sources, their romance began when Pete played for the star’s 31st birthday at her Cotswolds mansion in 2005. The party ended up lasting the whole weekend. In fact, Pete had brought with him a shoebox full of drugs. At that time, he found himself rubbing shoulders with a host of “random celebrities.” Some of Kate’s guests, including her ex, were not pleased to see him there.
He also further writes that half of the party was trying to score crack of him, and the other half was trying to chase him out, saying, “What are you doing here?” However, Pete was quite amused at the entire situation. He was feeling great at that big country house with “a pool and fancy carpets and great artwork.” It was then that he fell head over heels in love with supermodel Kate Moss.
How did The Romance Advance Between The Two?
Kate was also having a similar kind of attraction toward Pete at that time. She was like, if they have something for each other, Pete can as well move in, and they can stay together. In fact, within a week, things advanced quite at a swift speed, and they even got matching tattoos.
Moreover, soon after that, they met each other’s parents, with Pete’s dad asking the supermodel, “What do you do?” That was indeed hilarious! However, from the very beginning, Pete’s addiction to Class A drugs was a major barrier that caused problems in their relationship.
In fact, incidents like when his friend accused Pete of charges of robbery and blackmail after a bust-up with a former friend in 2005, Kate was horrified. However, his friend later on dropped the charges. Moreover, Pete also admits to selling stories to newspapers to settle drug debts and raise funds for bail.
Moreover, he further writes that it was like a running battle for the next two and a half years. Pete’s addiction had indeed tainted his image as a musician and gave rise to uncertainty in his relationship with Moss.
The Couple Loved Each Other A Lot: But They Were Incompatible
Pete’s addiction was becoming difficult for Kate Moss to handle. Even though she loved him a lot, she decided to take a step. According to Pete, he got a naltrexone implant on Kate’s insistence. This was to reduce the effects of heroin. However, it was difficult for him to manage. So he continued taking drugs.
In fact, when Kate would be out for her modeling jobs, Pete would be in her mansion and enjoy her luxurious house. This was becoming too much to handle for Moss. Various other occasions made them opt for a break-up.
One incident that decided the fate of their relationship was during a holiday in Thailand Pete went missing and ended up arrested for taking drugs. Kate and another of his friend bailed him out. Becoming furious due to countless incidents, in a final showdown, Kate wrecked Pete’s favorite guitar and burned his beloved teddy bear. This was too much for Pete to handle, and they opted for a break-up.
Kate’s destroying his favorite guitar and burning his Teddy bear was enough for Pete to decide they can’t stay together anymore. In his book, Pete Doherty honestly writes about the mistakes he made in his life. Now that he is in his late 40s, he realizes he was responsible for their break-up.
