She is also known for her controversial private life, high profile relationships, party lifestyle, and drug use.

In 2007, she came 2nd on the Forbes top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $9 million in one year. Moss was born in Addiscombe, Croydon, London to Linda Rosina (Shepherd), a barmaid, and Peter Edward Moss, a travel agent. Kate has a younger brother named Nick and a half-sister named Lottie (Charlotte) and half-brother. Moss' parents divorced when she was 13.
