Moss Taking Steps to Resolve Drug Issues
September 22, 2005

She's been a fashion force for more than a decade, creating a runway empire worth an estimated $7 million a year, but a cocaine scandal has caused Kate Moss’ empire to take a nosedive.

Fellow supermodel Elle Macpherson spoke out in London Thursday morning, talking about the Daily Mirror photos that forced Moss to admit her cocaine use.

"I'm sure it's a very difficult moment for her right now," Macpherson said. "I think she's in a very uncomfortable position, but when you lead a public life, your personal life gets scrutinized."

People magazine's Anne Marie Cruz said Moss’ career, which ironically was fueled by her status as the poster girl for the controversial "Heroin Chic" look of the late ‘90s, may now be in jeopardy.

And Wednesday night, things got worse when Moss’ boyfriend, former Libertines front man Pete Doherty, took out his frustration on the media.

"Ruining lives, ruining lives, do you enjoy doing that? Do you?" Doherty said before spitting on a photographer.

Moss has already begun the difficult task of rebuilding her life, releasing a statement saying, "I take full responsibility for my actions. I also accept that there are various personal issues that I need to address and have started taking the difficult, yet necessary, steps to resolve them."
