Blog: Leonie BarrieCocaine chain reaction

Leonie Barrie | 22 September 2005

Just to update yesterday’s blog, after the barrage of publicity surrounding pictures of Kate Moss allegedly snorting cocaine, coupled with lurid stories about her private life, it was probably to be expected that Burberry and Chanel would join H&M and drop the model. And they have. It seems that earlier predictions of a chain-reaction if one company decided to dump her are proving to be accurate. At stake are modelling contracts worth around £4 million a year. And now it seems that the police are planning to launch their own investigation into the scandal – and may well decide to make an example of Moss. As they say, every action has an equal and opposite reaction - and in this case the model’s cocaine habit could prove very expensive indeed.
