A supermodel taking drugs isn't a massive surprise to anyone, less so when a supermodel takes drugs at a rave – but a supermodel's rave-based drug-taking behaviour shocking a DJ? That hardly sounds right at all.
But it seems to be the case anyway. Two years after Kate Moss was hounded out of most of her modelling contracts following a picture of her possibly taking some drugs, it's been claimed by a DJ that she's at it again. Elliot Eastwick was the DJ at a recent party to celebrate Davinia Taylor's 30th birthday, and he claims that throughout the party Kate Moss kept screaming things like "I want some gear!" "Get me some gear!" and "Who's got the drugs?" – statements that seem innocuous enough to the average listener, but are all thought to be carefully-coded underworld slang-phrases that can only be understood by other drug-addicts which may or may not detail Kate Moss' desire to take some drugs.
Kate Moss is getting it from all sides at the moment. While the rest of her life should spent in a state of constant bliss because she doesn't have to wake up and see Pete Doherty's puffy, scab-covered old lady's face every morning, it seems like people are lining up to take the shine off Kate Moss' day.
First Kate Moss' eyelashes got reprimanded for being unnaturally telescopic, then all of St John's Wood ganged up to tell the world what a crummy neighbour Kate Moss is – and now a DJ has decided to tell the press about a bunch of drug-taking antics he claims to have seen Kate Moss get up to recently.
Apparently Elliot Eastwick, who was the DJ at bog-roll heiress Davinia Taylor's recent 30th birthday, saw Kate Moss get up to so much shocking drug-based behaviour that he had no choice but to tell whichever newspaper would buy his story for the most money. Highlights of Eastwick's interview include:
"She was a total nightmare. It was obvious she was on drugs. I've seen enough drugged-up people to know."
"Kate pulled some poppers out of her handbag and started snorting them in really heavily. It went straight to her head. You could see her loll as it took effect."
"She grabbed my lower arm, pulled me towards her and yelled, 'Who's got the drugs?' I told her I didn't know and I didn't have any, but she said, 'I want some gear. Get me some gear. You're a DJ, you must have some'. She was tapping on a record sleeve in the motion of someone racking up lines of coke. It was obvious what she was after."
If any of this is true – and at the moment the only evidence around is the word of a DJ we've never heard of – then Kate Moss should really know better. It was just two years ago that her career was almost ended by a grainy photograph of her seeming to snort up drugs, and for new allegations to come out so soon after she's managed to haul her career upright again smacks of either irresponsibility, deep stupidity or both. Because of one alleged moment of madness, Kate Moss risks losing everything – and for good this time.
On the plus side, if this happened it'd mean we wouldn't have to hear Kate Moss mimble "Get the London look" like some sort of pikey fieldmouse every 15 minutes in her useless Rimmel adverts. In fact, we'd probably crawl through her window and plant drugs in all her clothes if we knew it'd mean she'd stop making those bloody things.
