Friends and mom of the model Linda were against such a union, but Kate fell in love.
The relationship was stormy. Kate Moss tried to cure Doherty of drug addiction, and he actively resisted, periodically raising his hand to the model. Kate continued to treat him, gradually yielding to the persuasion of her beloved to try dangerous entertainment again.
Kate Moss returned to drugs and lost many contracts. Feeling guilty, Pete agreed to rehab, but after undergoing treatment, he returned to old habits.
Kate decided to leave. Pete explained their frustration in his own way: "It's because I could not shower diamonds on her, and my penis is too small." It took a little while, and rumors spread that Pete and Moss were back together.
In April 2007, Doherty announced that he and Kate were engaged. The couple decided to follow a special diet to prepare for the baby's birth, but as soon as Kate left Pete, he returned to his old habits again. In July 2007, the couple broke up completely: this time, Kate was sobered by Pete's betrayal. Immediately after the breakup, she kicked her lover out of the house, and in one of his interviews he called Kate "an old wallet." But nevertheless, he confessed his love and begged her to return. Moss didn’t come back, but she turned down the interest she was supposed to receive from songs she co-recorded with Pete.
