Kate Moss & Jamie Hince are fighting over custody of their dog, Archie


On Sunday, we discussed the ongoing situation with Kate Moss and her seemingly estranged husband Jamie Hince. Hince is in America now, touring with his band, The Kills. When The Kills were playing an LA venue last week, Hince was “caught” by a paparazzo – Hince was looking super-friendly/flirty with model Jessica Stam. Following that revelation – that there could be another woman in the mix – the UK tabloids have been trying to figure out just how bad all of this is for Moss. Here are some assorted stories:

Kate’s holiday. Apparently, Kate originally planned to soak up the sun and alcohol in Ibiza, but she canceled that holiday at the last minute. The Daily Mail’s gossip girl claimed that Moss is so “over” Hince that she’s planning to go on holiday with her ex-lover Jefferson Hack (Hack is Lila’s father). They are apparently already in Italy together.

Kate doesn’t want to look miserable. Sources claim: “Kate is not in a great place at the moment and she couldn’t face a weekend of partying. She felt that all eyes would be on her and if she looked miserable it would get back to Jamie. To say she’s going through a difficult time would be an understatement.”

Kate is hurt. The photos of Hince and Stam hurt Moss. A source said: “She’s always hated it when other women flirted with Jamie so the pictures of him and Jessica really hurt her.”

Fights about babies. The Mail’s gossip girl also claimed that Kate and Jamie’s marriage collapsed because Jamie “told friends” that he realized he and Kate had no business having a child together because of their irresponsible lifestyles.

Moss will sell her fancy London home. Kate has owned a really nice home in Highgate, a “tony” part of London, for four years. It was her marital home with Hince, and she’s reportedly putting it on the market.

There will be a major custody fight. About their dog, Archie. Technically, Hince rescued the dog but sources say “Kate loves Archie. He’s part of her life and she won’t give him up…It’s actually a big problem and neither know how to resolve this, other than ‘joint custody’ so to speak.”

It sounds like a mess. And it sounds like it’s really over, like Jamie Hince is leaving it to Kate as to when she wants to officially announce their split or whatever. Maybe she even thinks that there’s a chance they’ll get back together, which… hey, that might happen. But it feels more like Hince was done and he left and Kate is just dealing with the aftermath. Possibly in the arms of her ex-lover.

    Poor Archie.

      no kidding. I have a friend who got divorced five years back and when they divorced he gave the ex custody of their Pug. He says he still misses the dog, way more than he misses being married 😛

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        My ex got custody of my cat when we divorced 6yrs ago. I didn’t want to give him up (the cat–not the ex) but he had bonded with my ex’s cat and I didn’t have the heart to separate them. I still miss my cat every day. Every couple years I’ll go to my ex mother-in-law’s house (she has the cat now) and my cat still knows me and clings to me and it just breaks my heart. I was his mama (I got him when he was 7wks old) and he still remember even tho he’s 15yrs old now. Ok, I need to stop thinking about it before I break down…

      • What was that says:

        Oh I am so sorry scarlet,that made me well up.
        A very long time ago I had an Old English Sheepdog ,which I left with my ex as he lived there ..and before I knew it he had given him away..to a rescue without even offering me the chance to take him and make a home
        I never really got over the loss of my boy…I never spoke to my ex again
        It is heart breaking to loose your ‘fur baby’..people don’t understand the loss you feel

      • qwerty says:

        I’m fostering atm but if I ever adopt a dog while in a relationship it will be MINE and no one else’s. I’m not doing this “adopting as a couple” sh1t. Wanna go, pack your bags – the dog stays with me.

  2. BengalCat2000 says:

    I love them as a couple. Too bad. The Kills are a fantastic band!

  3. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I’m confused, doesn’t Jefferson Hack have a wife? (admit I haven’t kept up with full Kate by association gossip). I’d be surprised if there was anything romantic going on there. This Jamie guy, he was just a fugly rock star bachelor who should have never got married but went for it because he bagged the biggest model ever, like Mick Jagger he’s got ideas above his station. She can do much better, she needs to steer clear of musicians now – though it’s Kate so anything goes. So long as it’s not Pete Docherty, that was a hot mess. She should get to keep the dog, no question, she has a kid who probably loves it, Hince is a touring musician, it’s not fair on the dog to have an owner who is never around.

    • Johanna says:

      I don’t think Jefferson is married. He was in a long time relationship (and engaged) to model Anouck Lepere, but they broke up. Then he dated another model I think, but have no idea if they are still together. That said I don’t think he and Kate has rebounded, but they seem close. Gossip says he supported her a lot after the cocaine/rehab/Pete Doherty thing too.

  4. Miran says:

    All I wanted in my divorce was the dog.

  5. Alice says:

    If they’re too irresponsible to have a baby they’re too irresponsible to have a dog. He’s a sentient being, not a toy. Archie deserves better.

  6. Naddie says:

    He seems to be a jerk, she doesn’t seem too far from that either. Archie is a poor rich dog.

  7. Boston Green Eyes says:

    I keep seeing Bob Geldof in those pics.

  8. Crumpet says:

    Skinny jeans are not his friend.

  9. whatsyourbeef says:

    Can anyone explain what “Kate has owned a really nice home in Highgate, a “tony” part of London” means? I come from London, near Highgate, and I am absolutely mystified!

  10. LAK says:

    I’m genuinely surprised they had a dog. Didn’t peg them as being responsible enough to have one.

    Kate going back to Jefferson Hack is as likely as Clinton shacking up with Oprah.

  11. NeoCleo says:

    Archie looks like someone took a pit bulls body and transplanted a beagle’s head on it. So cute!

    I can’t blame Kate for wanting to keep her puppy. I would fight tooth and nail for my dog. I can live without many of my material possessions but my dog is everything.
