Kate Moss’ daughter Lila celebrated her 19th birthday at a spectacular Disney themed party last week, with my exclusive photos showing her channeling the ghost of Tinker Bell.
But there was one notable omission in the many party snaps I’ve seen: her “stepfather,” Count Nikolai von Bismarck, who is said to be incredibly close to the teenager.
Kate’s boyfriend was also not present when Lila took to the catwalk during London Fashion Week on Tuesday. While Mom looked on proudly in the front row, her 34-year-old partner was absent.
Kate, 46, was joined instead by Vogue editor Edward Enninful and Jordan Barrett, a 24-year-old male model who has been Kate’s constant companion in recent months and appears to have replaced Nikolai as the supermodel’s number one wingman.

Kate was a ring bearer at Jordan’s wedding to fellow male model Fernando Casablancas in Ibiza last month – where she resumed her party-loving ways after years of cheating.
Nikolai, who is determinedly sober and credited with encouraging Kate’s recent penchant for Netflix and early nights, was apparently nowhere to be seen.
As I revealed last week, friends wondered if Kate might be tempted again to get into her wilder ways now that the lockdown is over.
A friend has suggested that Nikolai disappear from the scene, at least temporarily.

Meanwhile, Kate was in high spirits at her only daughter’s birthday party, leading up to the big day this Wednesday, thrown into an elegant mansion that looked like Kate’s own Highgate home.
She smiled admiringly as she presented Lila with an ornate, pastel-blue, three-tier cake, which was carried into the room by a man dressed as Winnie-the-Pooh’s friend Tigger.
The teen’s outfit choice was appropriate, as she has been nicknamed “Tinkers.” And since Count Nikolai turns out to be a lost boy…
Jack Whitehall talks about how eager he is to step out of the shadow of his talent agent, father Michael – after a BBC talk show and five travel series for Netflix combined.
But I wonder how excited he is about his other “partner,” influencer Roxy Horner, 30.

The pair arrived separately at an Elena Gual art show last week and barely touched each other as they posed for snaps. While that partnership may be up for debate, Jack, 33, has no doubts about his relationship with his father, 81.
“My ambition is to finally emerge from the long and dark shadow of Michael Whitehall,” he joked. “It drives me crazy when strangers in the street yell, ‘Where’s your father?’ Even in America!’
My lips are sealed, but…
Which married MP had recently been demoted and was not apart from the fact that they were having an affair – and that their husband found out about it?
The gossip in Westminster is that Boris didn’t want another ‘Hancock situation’…
Damien Hirst dipped a cow in formaldehyde and called it art, making millions. Now the mad artist has immortalized his ballerina girlfriend Sophie Cannell in a silver cast – posing on all fours. Her bold demeanor is undoubtedly eye-catching, but I really hope her family members avert their gaze.

The image of her throwing her head back has an expression that suggests she’s in a state of, er, “euphoria.”
After dating countless girlfriends since breaking up with her long-term partner Maia, Damien, 56, seems to have settled on Sophie, 27, whom he met two years ago while she toiled as a waitress at Chiltern Firehouse.
He has since showered her with expensive gifts, including a diamond-encrusted Rolex and regular trips around the world on his private jet.
