Another week, another supermodel cocaine scandal!
No, not gown-shredding Kate Moss. Cheekbone-endowed British model Jodie Kidd has stepped in to fill her shoes. The tab News of the World has video footage of the aristocratic blonde allegedly arranging a cocaine deal for one of their undercover reporters, a man the model believed was interested in financing her brother Jack’s polo ventures.
In the footage, Kidd brags about her drug dealer connections, all the while dishing about her famous friends, including Princes William and Harry and Posh and Becks.
After the revelations, it looks like Kidd might have to resort to hanging with the twelve dealer friends she boasts of having on speed dial, as the comments she made during the operation may lose her a few friends. While one might imagine she could turn to Moss for help, the supermodel is unlikely to be amused by Kidd’s chalk talk: “Kate was very cool but she got a bit affected. They get very affected by stardom. It goes to their head.” As for Naomi Campbell, Kidd told the hack, “She’s a fucking nightmare.” For Victoria Beckham, she had these words: “She’s certainly not a model…. Can you imagine her? If you have a look in magazines now it’s her new perfume and there’s a picture of her. Urrgh.”
As a result of the mess, Kidd has had to drop out of a charity fashion show this week.
