Kate Moss and boyfriend Jamie Hince have fled to Ibiza after her home became infested with fleas
Kate Moss has fled her house after it became infested with fleas.
The supermodel and her boyfriend, The Kills frontman Jamie Hince, have headed to Ibiza while the London property is fumigated after her two Persian cats caught the blood-sucking parasites.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Jamie and Kate are covered in red spots and Kate won't touch him until it clears up. She's used to hangers on but this is ridiculous."
This is not the first problem Kate has had with her house.
She has previously had to replace the trendy rush mat floors with plush carpet because they were giving Jamie sore feet and she has recently been having problems with her local council after neighbours complained about a stench from her drains and a crumbling garden wall.
One local resident said: "I think the wall is an accident waiting to happen. Young children walk past it every day on the way to school and it looks as if it could topple over at any time.
"There is a huge crack right through the middle of it and Kate needs to do something about it."
A council spokesperson confirmed they have been examining the 34-year-old's house, saying: "The wall was inspected by our building control team and there is a problem.
"We have written to the owner to tell them they need to deal with the problem."
