Katie Price has always been incredibly open about the trials and tribulations of her love life.
Most recently, she has been discussing all the details behind her third divorce, following Kieran Hayler’s affair with their nanny, Nikki Brown.
The Loose Women panelist has spoken about Kieran’s sex addiction and how he slept with the nanny in every room of her house except the couple’s bedroom.
It is possible that this is Katie’s coping mechanism, gaining encouragement from her fans who have rallied around her to offer their support.
One wrote on Twitter: “Be strong Katie you tried your hardest no crime in admitting it’s over”. Another said: “Hang on in there sweetheart. Bad luck again, but you can overcome this one as well. Much love to you and the kids. Mwah. xxx”.
However, Peter Andre, Katie’s first husband, wants her to be more private about the breakdown of her marriage.
Peter, who is father to Junior, 12, and Princess, 10, has reportedly reached out to Katie and asked her to tone down what she reveals for the sake of their children.
A source told Closer Magazine: “Pete’s begged Katie to stop with the public slanging matches. He wants her to sort this mess out with Kieran behind closed doors.”
Katie and Peter were married for five years but divorced in 2009. Peter always had a very close relationship with Katie’s eldest son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke, and he worries about how Harvey will cope without Kieran around.
The source said: “With Kieran being a house husband for so long, the kids are used to having him around all the time.
“Pete worries about how Harvey would feel if Kieran wasn’t around, and fears how Princess and Junior would cope with the upheaval. He knows how close they are to Kieran.” Katie has promised she won’t stop the children from seeing Kieran if they want to, but it will undoubtedly be a difficult situation to navigate. Especially since Katie has expressed so much hurt and anger regarding Kieran’s actions.
Peter has since remarried to Emily MacDonagh and the couple have two children.
While Peter has reportedly said to Katie that he is happy to have the children over more while she handles her divorce, he wants her to act maturely throughout the process.
