‘Kate, I love you,’ writes rocker Doherty to Moss

LONDON (Reuters) - Rock singer Pete Doherty spelled out his
love for supermodel Kate Moss on Thursday, scribbling a message
on the inside of his car windshield after another appearance in
a London court on drug possession charges.

The 26-year-old Babyshambles singer had an on-off
relationship with 32-year-old Moss, but the couple are widely
reported to have split last year.

"I Love Kate 4 Eva," he wrote after running to his
gold-colored Jaguar following the hearing, using a heart shape
to express the world "love."

His case was adjourned until later in March.

Wearing his trademark trilby hat on arrival and a blue
jacket, he leaned from a window of the Thames Magistrates Court
building and began to play the harmonica to the throng of
photographers waiting below.

Only last month, the self-confessed drug addict was at a
different court facing separate narcotics charges. He was
spared a jail term and ordered to attend a rehabilitation
center and undergo monthly check-ups.

Moss was captured on camera last year apparently taking
large quantities of cocaine, and several fashion houses and
retailers severed ties with the mother of one.

She also attended a drug rehabilitation center last year in
the United States, and has since been rebuilding her career.
