Last week, not only was Kate Moss' house burgled and her $120,000 Banksy stolen, but then 14 naked photos of Moss failed to sell at a Christie's auction on Friday.

Welp, turns out things had to get worse before they get better for the supermodel—this weekend, Moss' London home was completely flooded with sewage this weekend. Sewage! Reports the Mirror:

A source close to Kate said: "Trouble started following heavy rains over the last bank holiday and culminated in her basement flooding and the pump system clogging up.

"Kate is absolutely gutted. Not only is her house a complete disaster zone, with mud, gunge and sewage everywhere, she recently had some walls repainted in Farrow & Ball paint at great expense. These are ruined. She has been told she is looking at a bill of around £100,000 to replace her outside deck, plus kitchen units, furniture and flooring."

Sources in the UK estimate that the backed-up pump system and resulting damage have caused Moss over $150,000 in damage to her home. "It has been reported that her kitchen, lounge and outside decking area have been ruined by up to 18 inches of putrid water," writes the Daily Mail Moss is said to be staying with friends while the mess is cleaned up and her home restored to working order.
