Kate Moss apparently found it a “massive deal” to meet her ex-Johnny Depp again.
The pair crossed paths to appear in the music promo for Sir Paul McCartney’s new single Queenie Eye. After meeting in 1994, Kate and Johnny dated until 1998 and were one of the biggest couples in showbiz. The British model was left heartbroken when they split, but finally felt able to see Johnny again recently.
“It was a massive deal for Kate to cross paths with Johnny again after all these years. She’s spent a lifetime trying to avoid him, but felt the time was right,” a source told British magazine Grazia.
Paul admitted it was a huge coup to get the pair to make a cameo in his video.
“I am very lucky they agreed to do it,” the music star said last week.
Kate is now happily married to The Kills musician Jamie Hince, while Johnny is dating actress Amber Heard following his split from Vanessa Paradis. The 39-year-old catwalk star apparently thought long and hard before agreeing to the video.
“Johnny broke Kate’s heart to smithereens and it took years for her to get over him. Kate is obviously with Jamie now, and Johnny is in a relationship himself, but she is understandably nervous about how it’s going to be received,” the insider revealed. “She knows how the interest surrounding their relationship has never really died down, even though they split over 15 years ago.”
Last year, Kate opened up about her relationship with Johnny. She confessed the break-up had left her devastated.
“There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, ‘What do I do?’ he’d tell me. And that’s what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust,” she said. “Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!”
Shortly after their split in the late ‘90s, Johnny shared his strong feelings for the model.
“Kate is somebody I care about deeply… she’s a great, lovely, sweet, pure girl… I love her on a very deep, profound level,” he revealed.
