  • Jodie Kidd could lose up to £500,000 in modelling contracts over cocaine claims

    Jodie Kidd could lose up to £500,000 in the wake of claims she procured drugs for undercover reporters.

    Joide, 28, allegedly met the reporters believing them to potential business investors in a polo club she is trying to set up.

    The News of the World claimed she obtained three grammes of cocaine for £150 for them.

    Asked whether the cocaine was good quality, Kidd allegedly said: ‘I’d do it. I’m not going to so s***. It’s not the best, but it’s what we can do at half past 12 at night.’

    And yesterday, three major firms she promoted this year – Marks & Spencer, Hi-Tech sports shoe and LG Electronics – were quick to point out they operated a strict ‘anti-drugs’ view.

    If just this trio were to sever Jodie’s contracts, it would cost her at least £375,000 in fees.

    M&S used the 6ft 1in model to promote its financial services. Chief executive Stuart Rose insists the company wouldn’t tolerate drug use. He told the Daily Mail: ‘I don’t know the facts are – but I condemn all drug users.’

    The model and her agents have so far refused to comment on the allegations.
