Kate Moss and Pete Doherty are still an item, according to the supermodel's biographer FRED VERMOREL. The pair were presumed to have split after Moss was snapped snorting cocaine during a recording session with Doherty's band Babyshambles. But Vermorel - who is writing Addicted to Love: KATE MOSS - claims they have merely been maintaining a low profile relationship to protect Moss in the press. He says, "I think all that's happened is that they've become scared of being photographed together. They want a bit of space to work things out between them without feeling that they're being crowded. "Their relationship's always been fairly free in any case - he'd been with groupies at the height of their time together and she'd been seen with other men, too. "But that didn't mean that they ever became less passionate about one another."
