LONDON – The tabloid that printed images allegedly showing model Kate Moss snorting cocaine has turned over the videotape to police, a senior staffer at the newspaper said Thursday.
Moss lost contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel after the Daily Mirror published the pictures in September. She later apologized to "all the people I have let down" and checked into an Arizona rehabilitation clinic.
Police said at the time that they would investigate the allegations, taking into account the impact on impressionable young people.
No one at the newspaper was willing to comment on the record.
A senior staffer at the newspaper who declined to be identified said that the Mirror had turned the secretly captured video over to police under a judge's orders. It allegedly showed Moss taking drugs with her then-boyfriend Pete Doherty, the troubled singer of British rock band Babyshambles.
Police refused to comment.
Moss has already begun a career comeback, picking up a string of new contracts and holding onto old ones. French Vogue devoted its December issue to Moss, with the cover tag line "Scandalous Beauty."
