Breaking up is always hard but being in the public eye makes it even harder.
Decades after leaving fiance Johnny Depp, Kate Moss opens up to Vanity Fair about their monumental relationship and the “nightmare” of their breakup, which left her in tears for several years to follow.
“There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said,” Moss explains in the magazine’s December 2012 issue. “Like if I said, ‘What do I do?,’ he’d tell me. And that’s what I missed when I left.”
Moss, who dated Depp from 1994-1998 and was reportedly engaged to the actor for a few months, reveals that she felt completely alone after the breakup.
“I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!”
Moss delves into the relationship in greater detail in her new book, Kate: The Kate Moss Book, where she explains how Depp helped her cope with her instant superstardom.
“I was lucky to be with Johnny at that stage. He taught me a lot about fame. He told me ‘never complain, never explain.’ That’s why I don’t use Twitter and things like that. I don’t want people to know what is true all the time and that’s what keeps the mystery.”
