Kate Moss was admitted to the $500-a-day Priority Drug Rehab Clinic in London in November 1998 and discharged January 5, 1999. She says she checked in “to assess my life and future” but Kate Moss’ party and drug habits were also well known in the industry. Ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp sent her a $100,000 BMW as a get-well gift on the day of her discharge. Kate Moss immediately took the new car for a spin. Unfortunately she left some meditation candles burning, next to a scarf her mummy gave her, which started a fire. It ignited the room and the building was evacuated but luckily no one was hurt.

Personal life
Kate Moss has a daughter, Lila Grace Moss, born on 29 September 2002, with Dazed & Confused editor Jefferson Hack. She is also godmother to the two sons of The Clash member Paul Simonon and to Iris Law, the daughter of Sadie Frost and Jude Law. She is also close friends with British pop singer Lily Allen. During the 1990s, she had relationships with Mario Sorrenti and Johnny Depp.

Moss has long been linked romantically with former Libertines member Pete Doherty, first meeting him at her 31st birthday party in January 2005. On 11 April 2007, Doherty announced Moss as his fiancée during one of his concerts in London, at which Moss also performed. Doherty planned to marry Moss during the summer of 2007. However, in July 2007 Moss and Doherty split. A removal van arrived to take away Doherty's possessions from Moss's home after they had a series of rows and arguments. Doherty is reported to have said, "It's like living with a fucking stalker." Moss had also changed the locks to the gates allowing access into her house. She was due to model on the catwalk for John Galliano with Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Lily Cole and Gisele Bündchen but was too distraught with her break-up to participate.

Moss currently lives with her daughter Lila in a £9 million townhouse in St John's Wood, North London. Tabloids and gossip magazines frequently report on her status, and since Doherty, Moss has been dating Jamie Hince, guitarist for The Kills. The Sun reported on 26 March 2008, that Moss was due to marry Hince after becoming engaged during a trip to Amsterdam; however, various other British tabloids reported that the Sun article was false. On 22 April 2009, Lillian Berlin of American band Living Things said in an interview that Moss had slept with his brother and band-mate Eve Berlin in June 2008, during the time she was dating Hince. In an appearance on the Howard Stern Show on April 26, 2010, Courtney Love strongly implied that Moss had chased her around the room and bed and had intercourse with her, and that all of Love's lady friends in London had also had relations with Moss.

Moss began dating Jamie Hince, guitarist for The Kills in late 2007 with The Sun reporting on 26 March 2008, that they had became engaged during a trip to Amsterdam, Hince proposing to Moss in bed with a vintage 1920s ring worth more than £10,000. Moss married Hince on 1 July 2011 at St Peter's Church, Southrop in Gloucestershire; she wore a dress by John Galliano.
