The tale of Kate Moss and her drug filled Faberge egg reminds me of the Saturday Night Live sketch that had the catch phrase, “You can put your weed in it.” What a brilliant idea to travel the world with something so extravagant, while using it as a drug stash receptacle.
She used the Â£65,000 gem-encrusted case to carry cocaine, ecstasy and the date-rape drug Rohypnol.
A pal told how Kate popped ecstasy and Rohypnol to help her “come down” from coke-fuelled highs. Kate, 32, showed off the egg, normally used as a posh decoration, during a South African trip in 1998.
She had a cocaine “party” with model booker Gavin Maselle, a member of her inner sanctum, in a hotel room in Cape Town. And gay Gavin, 36, said: “She produced Rohypnol and Es out of this FabergÃ© egg.”
Speaking on Day Two of The Sun‘s sensational Kate revelations, Gavin added: “She took two Rohypnol pills. We then lay in her bed chatting, then she passed out.”
The blue egg came out again after a coke session with other models. It held 2gms of cocaine and ecstasy tablets. Gavin said: “She travelled the world with that egg.” Kate flew to Cuba the next day with it full of ecstasy and Rohypnol.
Remember this is pre-9/11, so you could practically bring anything on a plane. Now why on earth would Kate be carrying Rohypnol (the date rape drug) around with her, in a Faberge egg no less? Well, she had to battle the depression that follows that cocaine high somehow.
