Watch out! Fergie’s gone on holiday with Kate Moss: Pair enjoy break in Greece with model’s boyfriend and Hong Kong tycoon’s family
When choosing a holiday companion, it’s best to stick to friends with whom you have a lot in common.
So it’s perhaps not surprising that fun-loving Sarah, Duchess of York, has opted for a summer jaunt with sybaritic supermodel Kate Moss.
The pair are holidaying in Greece along with the model’s 29-year-old toyboy boyfriend Count Ni
kolai von Bismarck and Hong Kong tycoon Sir David Tang and his family.
Both women, of course, share a scandalous past, a penchant for inappropriate suitors and a fondness for the high life.
In 2010, the Duchess was filmed by the News of the World in a cash for access controversy after attempting to sell an introduction to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for £500,000.
She later told Oprah Winfrey that she was ‘in the gutter’ and had been drinking before the newspaper sting.
Moss, 42, was branded ‘Cocaine Kate’ in 2005 after pictures surfaced which a newspaper claimed showed her snorting dr*gs at a music studio.
She lost her £1 million contract with H&M and booked herself into a rehab clinic.
Moss, who has a 13-year-old daughter, Lila Grace, with Dazed & Confused co-founder Jefferson Hack, was dating junkie rocker Pete Doherty at the time.
She is still legally married to estranged husband Jamie Hince, the Kills guitarist, but has since taken up with Nikolai.
Moss and Fergie’s friendship has been largely facilitated by Tang, who has hosted both women at his many lavish parties over the years.
Eyebrows were raised in 2006 when — shortly after photos were published in which Kate appeared to be taking c*caine — Fergie took Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, then just 18 and 16, to see in the New Year alongside Moss at a Thai resort where Tang was holding a bash.
Moss is reportedly launching a new talent agency. So maybe she should sign up Fergie as a client.
WHO’S WHO IN THE MOTLEY CREW
From left to right, meet Kate and Fergie’s shipmates…
Count Nikolai von Bismarck, 29: The great-great-grandson of German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck who is said to drink goat’s blood for fun. Previously linked with Cara Delevingne, Pixie Geldof and Princess Beatrice. A photographer by profession, he met Kate through the fashion industry.
Nikolai, who is called ‘Nick Nock’ by his brothers, has been living at Kate’s house since her split from musician Jamie Hince.
Kate was sporting a large sapphire and diamond ring on her left hand last week as she enjoyed a meal out in North London with Nikolai, prompting rumours that she might be engaged. Moss has long been close friends with Nikolai’s mother Debonnaire, and is believed to have a portrait of the countess in her home.
