Kate Moss's friends and family are devastated after learning she has run back into the arms of Pete Doherty. The supermodel has been secretly staying with the drug-addicted singer at Claridge's.
The Daily Mail has learned that the pair have been living it up in a £1,500-a-night suite at the Mayfair hotel for the past five days.
On one night, friends had to be ejected by hotel security when their revelry became too rowdy and the number of guests allowed per room was exceeded.
Doherty, 28, was last night pictured returning to the hotel after walking free from court on a technicality following a police blunder.
He had faced jail for breaching bail conditions. But because officers didn't bring him to court within 24 hours of his arrest, magistrates were forced to let him go.
There was no sign of Miss Moss coming or going from the hotel yesterday but sources said the pair had been meticulous about leaving and arriving separately.
Miss Moss has been arriving and leaving under the cover of darkness in recent days since returning from a holiday with friends in Spain.
The 33-year-old model's family and management are desperately concerned that she may be now dragged deeper into Doherty's murky world of heroin and crack cocaine.
A friend of Miss Moss told the Mail last night: "Linda, Kate's mum, thought the time away from him would break the spell he has over her. She had been on a strict break. They had not even exchanged a word in weeks.
"She has been completely ignoring him. But what is worrying the family most is that Kate feels that the break from Pete has only made her love stronger. Linda is absolutely devastated."
The friend went on: "During her holiday in Spain, Pete was calling her on the mobile incessantly. He could not get through and the line kept going dead.
"She eventually called him one evening and since that conversation they have been continually on the phone. Kate has been like a moth to the flame.
"When she got back to Britain, they met up at the hotel. He cried and she cried. She said to him she had been avoiding him because she had promised everyone from her managers to her mother that she would.
"She told him, 'It's not me. It's just what they all made me do'."
During a late-night heart-to-heart at Claridge's, Miss Moss told Doherty she was "miserable without him and desperately happy with him".
And what her family family fear the most is how she told him that if the intensity of the media scrutiny did not stop, she would be more than happy to live "on a desert island with him".
Speaking of Doherty's recent interview with a tabloid newspaper about their relationship - for which he is believed to have been paid some £40,000 - the friend added: "Linda thought that once Pete spoke to the papers about their relationship, there was no way back.
"But Pete has been telling Kate he was tricked by the paper and did not know what he was doing. Kate is clearly smitten - she can't get the guy out of her system.
"Now she is talking about making a grand commitment to him - she wants the wedding over here that was put on hold, and she also wants his children."
The bail breach charge followed the singer's arrest for suspected drug possession. It came less than two weeks after a judge told him he must kick his drug habit or go to jail.
