TALK ABOUT THE CITY: Is Party Queen Kate Moss – known as The Tank for her legendary party feats – back to her wild ways?
She was known as ‘The Tank’ for her ability to drink morning, noon, and night for decades – but Kate Moss suddenly interrupted her party frolics three years ago after the tragic death of her girlfriend Annabelle Neilson, of a heart attack at just 49 years old.
But just when we all thought she’d retreated to a life of quiet nights with boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck, I now hear that she’s taken a different path.
Whispers come to me that after a vacation in Ibiza last month, friends of the model said their former party queen “is back” and has a “new life”.
Kate Moss, pictured in Ibiza, retired from her party lifestyle three years ago after the tragic death of her girlfriend Annabelle Neilson from a heart attack at just 49.

“Mossy is back and everyone is talking about it,” says a source who knows her. The boyfriend said that after the lockdown ended, Kate had dated makeup queen Charlotte Tilbury, designer Stella McCartney and model Jordan Barrett over the summer.
“In Ibiza, that was all everyone was talking about,” the source said. “And a few famous people who know her mentioned it at a Chiltern Firehouse lunch last week.
“She has sometimes been seen acting quite wild. She still knows how to turn on the dance floors when she feels like it, just like in the good old days.
In July, Kate, 47, attended the launch of the autobiography of her close friend DJ Fat Tony, sober for 14 years. At the party, he said: “Kate has been sober for over two years. Me and my sober comrades now have a better time than we ever did when we were drinking and drugging.
Kate has given interviews saying she enjoys “hitting the bag at 11pm and watching Netflix,” adding that she tries to cut down on her smoking and instead copes with stress while doing yoga, which l ‘helped’ focus on the here and now ‘.
Yet about a month after attending the launch of the so-called “Quit-lit” book defending sobriety, Kate attended Jordan’s wedding to fellow model Fernando Casablancas at a noisy venue in Ibiza as a ring bearer … and apparently decided to let her hair down.
Photos from the island show her dancing with a topless Jordan at a wild party, crashing to the floor next to him and half-naked as she puts on makeup in the bathroom, while ‘he watches.

Other photos from a reportedly rowdy lunch on the same holiday show Kate looking tired and disheveled as she swings over a balcony to blow a fagot.
There was no sign of her 34-year-old boyfriend during the trip, and a friend believes they were having a rough time in their six-year relationship around this time – although there have no suggestion that they broke up.
Maybe Nikolai would prefer his girlfriend to settle back into those quiet nights watching Netflix …
