The Mail on Sunday understands that Nikolai and Kate have just returned from a secret week-long break on the romantic private island of Mustique where, to prove to any doubters that she truly is committed to this new romance, she finally removed her wedding ring.It now seems that it was Kate who grew tired of her settled life in the Cotswolds playing housewife for Jamie and it was she rather than her husband, say insiders, who pulled the marriage down upon both their heads.Since Jamie was caught in a tender clinch with buxom lingerie model Jessica Stam in America just a few weeks ago, he has not returned home – and Kate has made numerous dishevelled appearances alone in London, culminating in her emergence from a taxi last month with what appeared to be white powder on her skirt.Many, including her friends, have been tempted to portray Jamie as the man who broke the heart of the nation’s favourite doe-eyed model – the first man who took her down the aisle and the first, they claim, to truly break her heart.The two were allegedly seen openly kissing and canoodling at a restaurant with the paper reporting the pair went public with their relationship after they had secretly met up at hotspot Coya on Tuesday in London's upmarket Mayfair district.A showbiz insider told the paper that the pair were in a cordoned-off area within the members area of the restaurant which gave them plenty of privacy but the pair didn't mind being seen together and were being openly affectionate towards one another.The newspaper's insider maintains that Naomi is smitted with Michael and told friends at the V&A event that she was looking forward to going on a date with the movie star later that night and everyone was desperate to find out who it was with.
They made sure though that they arrived at the restaurant separately to avoid being photographed together.
Count Nikolai is one of the most eligible bachelors in England – and not just because he is the heir to a multi-million pound fortune and the great-great-grandson of Otto von Bismarck, the first chancellor of Germany.
Michael, who was seen going for breakfast with his father the morning after the IFTAS, only recently was reportedly dating his 12 Years A Slave co-star Lupita Nyong'o, while this could be Naomi's first romance since she split with Russian billionaire Vladimir Deronin last year in May after five years together.
Allegedly Michael's romance with Lupita was more a casual thing that blossomed on the set of the movie but with all of the travelling she has been doing of later since she won the Oscar Lupita doesn't have time for a serious relationship at the moment.
When, on Friday night, a healthy and happy-looking Kate Moss was spotted escorting her 28-year-old photographer boyfriend to a cinema near her home in north London, there was relief among her friends – and widespread sympathy, too.These have been troubling times for the world’s most iconic supermodel, who has endured the painful and very public collapse of her marriage to Jamie Hince, a guitarist with little known ‘indie’ band The Kills.
