The rumor mill is swirling amid reports that Kate Moss had an alcohol-fueled meltdown on board a flight from Turkey to England over the weekend. The supermodel was reportedly on her way home from a week-long trip to luxury resort in Bodrum, Turkey, where she frequently visits to “detox” and feel more “centered.” But her return to the sauce after a week off may have landed her in trouble.

On Sunday, Moss, 41, was escorted off an easyJet flight by police for her “disruptive” behavior. Sources say she was drinking vodka from her carry on luggage after she was denied an in-flight beverage, and called the pilot a “basic bitch.”

Some are claiming she was drunk when she boarded the plane. Others say she was involved in a “sweary” altercation with a fellow passenger. The meltdown may have been provoked by passengers snapping photos of her during the flight, a rumored “pet peeve.”

Moss’ heavy substance use and multiple stints in rehab have been headline fodder for decades. In the mid-'90s, she developed a reputation as a heavy drug user, though she claims in her 2012 memoir that she actually never did drugs. “I wasn't any of those things that they were painting me to be,” she wrote.

In 2005, she was photographed allegedly snorting cocaine at a party, leading to her being dubbed “Cocaine Kate” and threatening to derail her career.

But sources close to the supermodel say, though the drug rumors were overblown, her drinking is the real problem.“People have been going on about cocaine for years after the Cocaine Kate scandal, but really, with Kate, it’s always all been about alcohol,” a source told The Daily Mail.

Another said she’s in denial: “As far as Kate is concerned she doesn’t have a problem, and she never has had a problem. She has always been a drinker, always.”

As far as the most recent scandal, a source says Moss is “not embarrassed by what happened, although she is annoyed by the attention.”

It seems the supermodel may not be flying easyJet again, as the airline is reportedly planning to ban her for life.
