After a period of relative calm in the saga of Kate Moss and her on-again-off-again boyfriend Pete Doherty, the drama is back.
Doherty used Tuesday’s edition of the U.K.’s Daily Mirror to profess his love and desire to be with Moss again.
“I love her with all my heart,” he told the newspaper. “I like the way she walks and talks. I love her bones. I love her brain.” He claims he has no other way of reaching her.
He goes on to say their tempestuous relationship was marred by the fact she is a jealous “nasty old rag” with a violent temper, and claims she once kicked him in the head.
On Wednesday, he elaborated on the reasons for their breakup, telling the Mirror that Moss went “ballistic” when they settled in one night to watch a DVD trailer for a feature-length film about Doherty.
When images of him flirting with groupies appeared on the screen, he says that Moss accused him of cheating and kicked him out of her home “for good.”
Meanwhile, the newly blonde Doherty tells The Sun that dating Moss was like being on the front line. He contradicts earlier claims by saying he left her and doesn’t want her back.
The couple split up last month. On July 4, movers were spotted at Moss’s London home removing furniture and guitars, a piano, paintings and suitcases.
“The last six weeks of our relationship were bad. We had one massive bust-up and it carried on from there,” he said. “I was always dodging bullets … [it] became like the Vietnam war.”
Doherty has battled drug addiction for years and has had numerous run-ins with police for drug offenses. Last month he admitted in court to possessing quantities of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine as well as to two driving infractions.
Moss, 33, and Doherty, 28, have dated off and on for more than two years, and he claimed in memoirs published in June that they would wed this summer if he could stay drug-free.
