Pete Doherty: I still love Kate Moss - and I f**ked it up
Kate has reportedly cut off all contact between them since they split up earlier this month - changing phone numbers and hiding out at friend’s houses - so Pete resorted to trying to contact the supermodel through the Daily Mirror newspaper, which she reads.
He told the newspaper: “Kate has broken my heart. There’s been this lockdown and I can’t get hold of her. This is the only way I can get through.”
“I need her to know that she’s out of her f***ing mind. Kate, if you love me then realise I don’t want any other girl. Do I still love her? Don’t ask me that question. Why do you think I’m here today talking to you? I’m here to tell her that I love her.”
“It was love at first meet. When I met her she said she’d get a P tattoo, and I’d get a K. Soon afterwards she said ‘I’m not fickle, I’ll marry you’. I f***ed that up, didn’t I?”
He added that Kate wasn’t perfect - she has “an awful temper” and is jealous of his female fans & friends - but “I love her with all my heart. I wasn’t going to go after a poxy model, let alone some girl I’ve known as a friend for years. Kate is both jealous and suspicious, the same as every woman. But being accused all the time of going with other women takes its toll.”
“She can sit on our music producer’s knee in the rehearsal room to wind me up. But as soon as I talk to anyone, it’s an affair.
“Kate is so stubborn. She’ll probably sit this one out. Rather than listen to reason and say ‘No, actually you didn’t sleep with that girl, that’s ridiculous’, she decides to have a big old row.”
“When she finished it in a blazing row, I decided never ever ever am I going to go through that again. I promised myself so many times about it. But I always go back.”
Pete did add there was an irony to Kate reading the Mirror - which published photos of her taking drugs and dubbed her “Cocaine Kate” in September 2005, as well as being generally being a paparazzi-friendly tabloid: “F***ing hell man, why does she read the Daily Mirror, anyway? She moans all the time about the f***ing paparazzi then first thing in the morning she’s got to buy your paper.”
