Kate Moss Once Dated An Italian Prince
British supermodel Kate Moss once dated an Italian prince for eight months, reveals the royal.
Moss had a passionate affair with the heir to Italy's now abolished throne - Prince Emmanuele Filiberto Umberto Reza Maria Di Savoia in 2002 and the royal who lives in exile in Switzerland was introduced to the supermodel by singer Marianne Faithful when they visited him in Corsica, reports a celebrity magazine.
"We were together about eight months and she was a fascinating woman, not weird at all. She came on a yacht to my house in Corsica. She was meant to stay three days but stayed three weeks," said Prince Emmanuelle, 37.
Emmanuele says he has fond memories of his time with 35-year-old ramp queen who is currently dating rocker Jamie Hince and has a seven-year-old daughter Lila Grace from a previous relationship. The prince even penned a song to commemorate their affair.
"I even wrote a song for her with Marianne called 'The pleasure song', about ways to love. Then our relationship ended because that's how things go, but I remember her as a very passionate lady. We were young, our roads drifted and we split up," he said.
The prince later went on to marry French actress Clotilde Courau, 40.
He also won the fifth series of "Ballando con le Stelle" - the Italian version of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ last year.
The Italian throne was abolished in 1946, although Prince Emmanuele retains the title of Prince of Venice and Piedmont.
