Kate Moss was admitted to the $500-a-day Priority Drug Rehab Clinic in
London in November 1998 and discharged January 5, 1999. She says she
checked in "to assess my life and future" but Kate Moss' party and drug
habits were also well known in the industry. Ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp
sent her a $100,000 BMW as a get-well gift on the day of her discharge.
Kate Moss immediately took the new car for a spin. Unfortunately she
left some meditation candles burning, next to a scarf her mummy gave
her, which started a fire. It ignited the room and the building was
evacuated but luckily no one was hurt.
