Moss' silence bribe?
16:30 03 April 2006
Kate Moss is reportedly paying on/off lover Pete Doherty to keep his silence about their troubled romance.
The supermodel - who is believed to have rekindled her romance with the cash-strapped Babyshambles rocker - is allegedly so worried he might sell stories about them she gives him piles of cash whenever they meet.
The stunning star is even said to be paying Pete's pals to stop them lifting the lid on their relationship.
A source told Britain's News of the World newspaper: "When she goes to meet him she takes a handbag full of bundled-up banknotes. She says it's to help him get back on his feet.
"Kate is so paranoid about details of her personal life being revealed to the media that she's giving wads of cash to him and his friends to keep everything quiet. She thinks that will prevent him being tempted to sell stories or get his pals to do so."
Meanwhile, Pete is said to have told friends he's planning to tie the knot with Kate this summer.
He reportedly said: "I'm glad it's out in the open. I love Kate and we want to get married in the summer."
