The Primrose Hill Set boozed its way to tabloid infamy in the 1990s and early 2000s. This British group of rich, sexy, drugged-up celebs got the moniker from a fashionable, ritzy area of London where many of them lived. But who was in the Primrose Hill Set? Actors like Jude Law and Sadie Frost, his then-wife; supermodel Kate Moss; rockers Liam and Noel Gallagher and Rhys Ifans; actress Davinia Taylor; and their pals. They worked together in movies, slept together, and most notably, partied together.
The naughtiest of Primrose Hill Set stories ranges from swinging and threesomes to cheating and secret children outside of wedlock. Drug-fueled binges, Law's sexual escapades, Moss's drama with Johnny Depp, and plenty of emotional breakdowns became commonplace for these high-profile hotties whose many misdeeds never failed to enthrall readers of gossip rags. The Primrose Hill Set '90s made the rock 'n' roll lifestyle a real-life thing in the era of "Cool Britannia."
Jude Law And Sadie Frost's Toddler Swallowed Half An Ecstasy Tablet
In October 2002, Jude Law and Sadie Frost's daughter Iris nearly died at the tender age of two. While attending a children's party at upscale Soho House - a club that became a bar at night - little Iris came across an ecstasy tablet on the floor. She ate half of it before anyone realized what she was doing, and Frost rushed Iris to the hospital.
"I found myself being criticized in some quarters for taking my child to Soho, for being a bad mother and being part of a wild, hedonistic London set. I don't think there's anything wrong with taking your daughter to a children's party populated by two to eight-year-olds...Jude and I aren't some wild rock 'n' roll couple."
Sadie Frost And Kate Moss Allegedly Had A Cocaine-Fueled Threesome With A Friend
Sadie Frost has long been BFFs with supermodel and '90s icon Kate Moss, but their bond extended past the platonic. At a 2002 party held in the Frost-Law residence, the pals, along with actress and toilet paper heiress Davinia Taylor, allegedly snorted so much cocaine that they decided to engage in sexual activity. Moss, Frost, and Taylor reportedly then had a ménage à trois, although Taylor denied it in a 2008 interview.
Noel Gallagher Snorted Cocaine In The Queen's Bathroom
Rock star brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher of the band Oasis earned infamy for their extensive drug use, which hasn't abated with age. In fact, Noel threw a cocaine-themed birthday party in 2017. His coke habit was particularly well-documented in the '90s and early 2000s, even extending to important political occasions.
In 1997, Noel visited Ten Downing Street to meet then-Prime Minister Tony Blair. He entered into a private bathroom reserved for the exclusive use of Queen Elizabeth II. Instead of using the toilet, he decided to get high and snorted coke in Her Majesty's loo.
Jude Law And Sadie Frost Were Swingers
No one can accuse Law and Frost of having a boring marriage. They apparently swapped partners with other members of the Primrose Hill Set, including fashion designer Pearl Lowe (who had a daughter with Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, now ex-husband of Gwen Stefani) and her then-boyfriend, drummer Danny Goffey. The couples began swinging after a joint vacation in 2001. Goffey and Frost kept up the flirtation even after they came home, while Law sent Lowe sexy messages.
