A spokesman for Kate Moss denied reports the supermodel and rocker Pete Doherty had tied the knot during a candlelit Buddhist ceremony in Thailand on New Year’s Day. Stuart Higgins said Moss, 32, was vacationing in Thailand, but hadn’t married Doherty, frontman for Babyshambles.
“There has not been any kind of marriage ceremony in Thailand. She is on holiday,” Higgins said.
British newspapers reported that Moss and Doherty had held the ceremony in the Thai resort of Phuket. Neither the Sun nor the Daily Mirror provided sources for the information. The Mirror quoted an unnamed friend of Moss as saying the ceremony was an expression of the couple’s mutual devotion. Higgins called the reports “entirely false.”
Moss and Doherty were reported by British media to be staying at one of the island’s luxury resorts — the sort where guests have their own private swimming pools — but hoteliers were discreet about the matter.
The Sun said the ceremony wasn’t legally binding in Britain, and named Jan. 18 as the pair’s official wedding day. Both papers ran blurry images of the couple; the back of Moss’ head, her hair pulled back, could be seen, and Doherty, as usual, wore a trilby hat.
