Kate Moss has been banned from attending the Coachella Music and Arts Festival by Jamie Hince.

The Kills musician - who is currently touring America with his bandmate and ex-girlfriend Alison Mosshart - wants his supermodel lover to stay away from the event when the band perform on April 16 because he doesn't want her taking attention away from his group.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jamie and Alison see Coachella as a great launch pad in the US - as long as all the coverage isn't about Jamie and Kate."

To make it up to Kate, Jamie - who has been in a relationship with the catwalk star since 2007 - has reportedly promised her a West Coast mini-break before the next stop on the tour.

The model is used to Jamie's rock 'n' roll lifestyle, and has joined him on the road and on stage in the past, which has led to clashes between her and Alison.

The 37-year-old blonde beauty was reportedly banned from one Kills' tour in 2008 by the singer.

When Kate dated Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty she regularly joined him on stage and sang on the band's track 'La Belle Et Le Bete'.
