Kate Moss Checks Out of Rehab
Kate Moss has checked out of the Meadows Clinic in Phoenix, Ariz., where she was receiving treatment for cocaine use, her modeling agency announced Thursday.
The 31-year-old British supermodel left the $4,000-a-night facility earlier this week and was spending time with friends in the U.S., said the statement from her London-based Storm agency.
The firm went on to say that Moss would be reunited with her 3-year-old daughter Lila in the next few days and that Moss would undertake modeling assignments in Los Angeles, Paris and New York within the next month.
"Kate is in excellent spirits and looking forward to getting back to work. She would like to thank everyone for their messages of support as they have played a major part in helping her," a Storm spokesman was quoted as saying, reports the Associated Press.
According to The Times of London, the month-long Meadows program cut Moss off from friends and family members during her recovery treatment program.
Moss lost lucrative contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel last month after photos of her allegedly snorting cocaine in a London music studio were published in Britain's Daily Mirror tabloid. One company that stood by Moss though was Italian tire company Pirelli, which featured Moss in their 2006 calendar. "What Kate does in her private life is her own concern," said a company rep.
Moss, who spent a month in rehab in 1998, never admitted to drug use. Nonetheless, shortly after the revealing photos surfaced, she issued a carefully worded apology reading in part: "I take full responsibility for my actions. I also accept that there are various personal issues I need to address and have started taking the difficult but necessary steps to address them."
