The plan of appealing to Kate Moss through the Mirror might have been a good one, Pete Doherty. But there was a problem.
What caught Moss' eye wasn't the lovely things you said about her, but, erm, the bit where you called her a 'nasty old rag'. Women are funny like that, Pete - they don't like being called rags in their newspaper of choice. They also, of course, hate to be publicly labeled a Daily Mirror reader:
"Kate lost all control - flew into a rage. Pete had given Kate lyrics for a song written in blood when they were together. She had it framed.
"Yesterday she smashed the picture, ripped the lyrics up and threw them in the bin. She was so upset that she mentioned something so personal as singing Moon River on an phone message.
"She is disgusted at his claims that she read the tabloid concerned - the very one which turned her over so publicly for cocaine.
"She is furious that it all makes her look so pathetic when she is the one that has cleaned herself up and dumped him. He has been sending her notes and presents via various people but she has never opened them because she recognises the writing.
"Kate's rage has now subsided into tears and she is slightly panicking that he is going to do something more aggressive in his pathetic attempt to get her back."
The Mail, though, isn't convinced that Pete was even trying to win Moss back - they ascribe a slightly darker role to his actions. Sorry, Kate Moss' friend suggests it:
"Kate is now being advised to buy his silence before it all gets even more out of hand. She is so angry saying 'How dare he?' She has been ranting, screaming down the phone to family and friends that him talking about their relationship is the one thing he promised he would never do.
"She is going mad with anger - there no other way to describe it. He kept diaries and took pictures of them both.
"There is a lot that could potentially come out. Her aides - like her manager Sarah Dukas - have taken a sharp intake of breath, thinking the whole thing they have built up could come tumbling down."
Although if this "friend" was really that bothered about Moss having her skimpy knickers scrubbed in public, we're not sure going to the papers and saying "Pete Doherty has got tonnes of stuff that would make the public's eyes pop out their heads" is so wise - it sounds more like you're trying to help Doherty negotiate a deal with the tabloids rather than protect Kate's interests.
