EMILY PRESCOTT: Kate Moss just can’t escape the lure of London as she snaps up a new Mayfair bolthole after move to the country, amid rumours she has split from boyfriend Count Nikolai von Bismarck
She sold her North London home last year and upped sticks to the country as part of her attempt to become a wellness guru – but it seems the lure of the capital is just too strong for supermodel Kate Moss.
I can reveal Kate, 49, has bought a pied-a-terre in swanky Mayfair, where the average property has a £9.2 million price tag.
I’m surprised to see Kate back in the city so soon and hope the purchase of a London bolthole has nothing to do with rumours that she has split from long-term boyfriend Count Nikolai von Bismarck, 35.
Nikolai has been seen at multiple events, such as Glastonbury, without Kate and was photographed with American model Camille Rowe a few weeks ago.
Kate and Nikolai have lived at her ten-bedroom Cotswold mansion since 2022, after she sold her home in Highgate, North London.

Her time in the capital was famously raucous. Council officials were called to investigate noise complaints during riotous celeb parties, and locals filed complaints about Kate’s ‘tacky’ renovations.
A local Green Party councillor even got involved at one stage, raising environmental concerns about a proposed steam room in the house, next door to George Michael’s old home. Hopefully Kate will be a little better behaved at her new abode in Mayfair, where her neighbours include members of Qatar’s royal family. Indeed, Mayfair is so popular with wealthy Qataris that the area has been christened Little Doha.
In addition to kitting out her new pad, Kate has her hands full at the moment with her wellness brand Cosmoss. Chatting to the Financial Times, she revealed plans to pioneer ‘the Cosmoss world’.
Global domination may or may not be on the horizon, but Mayfair isn’t a bad place to start. Kate was approached for comment last night.
