Kate and Pete to tie the knot?

2006-12-24 07:26

London - Supermodel Kate Moss and troubled rocker Pete Doherty could marry this week in London, The Mail on Sunday newspaper has said.

The fashion icon and the musician battling a drug addiction are expected to tie the knot in a civil ceremony in west London.

Singer Doherty, 27, has invited his fellow Babyshambles bandmates to witness the ceremony at the Fulham Register Office, said the weekly.

"Both Kate and Pete have invited close friends and family to meet them there on Friday," an unnamed source told the newspaper.

"There's been a bit of a tussle over the guest list, which is small because Kate's concerned that some of Pete's hangers-on are bad news, but he's determined to have his mates there."

And a wider group of friends and family have been invited to the Spanish party island of Ibiza for a lavish wedding celebration on January 18, the newspaper said.

"Kate and Pete will travel out to the island a couple of days ahead of the party, in time for her 33rd birthday on January 16. Everyone else has been told to get there on the 18th and lots have already booked their flights," a source close to both told the newspaper.

Spending New Year's with friends

The Mail on Sunday also said that Moss was to attend an extravagant New Year's Eve party on the Thai island of Phuket along with her friend Sarah, Duchess of York.

Sarah was to take her daughters Princesses Beatrice, 18, and Eugenie, 16, granddaughters of Queen Elizabeth II, to the party, the newspaper said.

Moss, one of the world's highest-paid models, has recently resurrected her career after drug-taking revelations last year when a newspaper published pictures of her allegedly taking cocaine.

Notorious rock bad boy Doherty checked out of a drug rehabilitation clinic in September. He is perhaps best known internationally for stumbling his way through a duet with Elton John at the giant Live 8 concert in London last year.

Earlier this month, Doherty was fined $1 523 dollars and banned from driving for four months for possessing illegal drugs, including crack cocaine and heroin.

In October, his uncle Phil Michels claimed that Moss was pregnant by his nephew.
