Kate Moss 'Checks into Rehab'

Sep 29, 2005 | 7:45am EDT

Disgraced supermodel Kate Moss had reportedly checked into an Arizona rehabilitation clinic, two weeks after the beauty was photographed allegedly snorting cocaine.

British newspaper the Daily Mirror published photographs earlier this month of the model allegedly snorting the narcotic in a London recording studio and has subsequently lost a string of high-profile modeling contracts with H&M, H Stern, Chanel and Burberry.

British newspapers The Times and The Sun report today Moss has flown to the $4,000-a-night Meadows Clinic in Wickenberg, Arizona, which has treated fellow celebrities Elle Macpherson, Matthew Perry, Whitney Houston and Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean.

A friend of the model tells The Sun, "Kate knows she has to take action. And there is no better place than The Meadows."

Moss reportedly checked into the clinic on the advice of Macpherson, who received treatment for depression at Meadows in 2003.

The model will spent 30 days at the clinic and will be forbidden contact from friends, family and on/off boyfriend Pete Doherty.

Meanwhile, a controversial documentary featuring footage of the shamed supermodel allegedly snorting cocaine will be broadcast on British TV next month.

UK satellite channel Sky One say the show - called Kate Moss: Fashion Victim? - will capitalize on intense public interest in the beauty after a British newspaper published photographs of the 31-year-old apparently taking drugs.

A spokesman for Sky says, "The documentary aims to paint an honest picture of the landscape that formed the backdrop to the saga and, in a worldwide exclusive, features video footage of the widely reported incident involving Moss and her self-confessed heroin addict boyfriend Doherty.

"It will provide a balanced debate over the role of the media and the fashion industry and ask whether Moss could continue her career."
