Katie Price “devastated” by separation from husband, wants Peter Andre back

Trashy British reality couple Katie Price and Peter Andre announced yesterday that they were separating after four years of marriage. Their statement made it sound like a mutual decision and one that could have been in the works for some time. The two were seen out holding hands at a restaurant on Saturday and JayBird even speculated that the two reality stars may have been faking their relationship these past few days and weeks for the media.

It turns out the split may have been much more volatile and sudden than anticipated. Outlets are reporting that Pete became enraged by photos published Monday of a drunk Jordan out at a club on Friday flirting with guys, and that’s when he decided to call it off. Katie has released a statement that makes it sound as if it was all a shock to her and that she wants nothing but to stay with Pete.

Katie and Pete met in 2004 on the reality show “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.” The couple has two children together, Junior, nearly four, and Princess Tiaamii, nearly two. Price also has a special needs son, Harvey, nearly seven. (All of Prices’ children have birthdays coming up in the months of May and June, which makes it even sadder that their parents are splitting up now.)

Katie Price has described her devastation at her split from Peter Andre, insisting it was his decision to divorce.

The glamour model, 30, fled Britain with her children shortly after it emerged that the pair’s three-and-a-half year marriage had come to an abrupt end.

In an emotional statement, she claimed she would always love ‘my Pete’ – and that he had dumped her.

But their split appeared to take a bitter turn as Andre, 36, said he could no longer cope with his ‘out of control’ wife.

‘I’m not jealous of anybody until Katie’s drunk,’ he told The Sun. ‘There’s nobody I feel threatened by when she’s sober.

‘But if she’s been drinking, I know she’s capable of anything. The devil gets inside her and she’s a nightmare.’

The couple, who met on reality television show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, split just hours after pictures of Katie emerged in a national newspaper.

She appeared to be drunk and was flirting with another man in Bristol’s Sycamore Club on Friday night.

A witness said Price acted like a single girl rather than a married woman.

At one point, she picked up a microphone and sang a disastrous rendition of Pete’s hit Mysterious Girl.

The witness said: ‘It was obvious she’d been drinking pretty heavily. She looked out of it.’

It appeared to be the last straw of an increasingly fragile relationship that was fraying at the edges when the pair had a screaming match during filming for their reality TV show – which they allowed to be shown on ITV2 at the weekend.

Last night, the mother-of-three left her marital home in Surrey with children Junior and Princess for an undisclosed location abroad.

Her eldest child Harvey, from a previous relationship with footballer Dwight Yorke, is being looked after by a nanny at home.

In a statement, she spoke of her devastation at the demise of their four-year marriage.

‘Pete is the love of my life and my life.

‘We have children together and I am devastated and disappointed by his decision to separate and divorce me, as I married him for life,’ she said, before adding: ‘I will always love my Pete.’

Her estranged husband arrived back at the mansion they share later last night.

News that the couple, said to be worth £30million, are going their separate ways follows months of speculation about the state of their marriage.

[From The Daily Mail]

Katie and Pete have a prenup so if they do go forward with the divorce their squabbles over money and assets will be limited. It sounds like money was a huge stressor in their relationship. They got in a big fight that was aired on their show last week, with Katie telling Pete “I’m the one making the money Pete, so of course I can have it how I want… Hurts, doesn’t it?” It looks like Katie is the one hurting now that she got dumped. It’s not surprising that this couple crashed and burned, although I bet there will be at least one reconciliation before the end. Their courtship, marriage and now their divorce is all going to play out in front of the media.

    OMG this is so staged. Took staged pictures while drunk, staged two statements with one desperate “i will always love him”, wait a few weeks, “how great we’re back together !”. Sigh.

  3. HEB says:

    How much money could they possibly have? Ok so she whores out some cheap shit, other than that they don’t DO anything so where do they get money to argue over?

  4. geronimo says:

    Yawn. Plastic, fake, attention-seeking pair of media-whoring dullards.

  5. caitlinsmommmy says:

    No fan of these two. But it sounds like Katie is a binge drinker… she’s been photographed MANY times in public w/out her husband, drunk off her a$$. That kind of thing really can take a toll on a marriage. Not like there might not be other issues, including Peter’s gender preference, but I could totally see that kind of repeat, drunk behavior sinking a marriage that is already troubled.

  6. baz says:

    What a lovely couple! Ugh, pass me the sick bag. No not Jordon the bag, but a proper one as supplied on an aircraft.

  7. geronimo says:

    HEB – They’re worth in the region of £30m, primarily down to Katie. She’s created a whole industry from basically nothing but a surgically enhanced pair of t*ts and very shrewd business nous. They’ve sold themselves to the media 24/7 since they hooked up so although it’s primarily down to her – ie. the media has no interest in him on his own – they’ve made a huge amount of money. Sad but true.

  8. youwhat? says:

    Here’s a heads up to those who believe “The Price” to be a shrewd and savvy self-made woman: SHE AINT. It’s all due to her management and PR team. She just got lucky because she landed the right people right from the start. Everything about this woman is fake, including her ‘marriage’ and she herself has never ‘achieved’ anything because she’s always had someone else to do it for her, lol I
    wouldn’t even be surprised if she hired someone to do her blowjobs…although nah..I think she enjoys those too much. Trashy skanky ho-bag who would be on a street corner if it wasn’t for being in the right place at the right time.

    Last time there was a post about them, I asked why they were always fighting as I am unfamiliar with their show.

    Katie needs to get her act together! She does not appreciate her husband as an equal partner in that relationship. It’s interesting to hear about their relationship dynamic, because I think in Hollywood its usually the reverse, with the husband stepping out to party and not appreciating his wife.

    I don’t know them well, but from the sounds of this article I could see them getting back together. This has all the makings of an on-again off-again emotionally dependent/abusive relationship.

    Katie, is a down to earth woman. Although she may be bitchy, we all argue with our paterners, and it just shows she is real. I’m sure if you had a camera around you 24/7 you would see a few arguments in your household too. Katie does love Pete, that is obvious, however they both need to learn to trust each other if they do sort things out. Girls will be girls, and flirt, that shouldn’t be a problem. On the show the other week we saw Katie being uneasy about Pete going out, this is her insecurity from past relationships showing. She has been through a lot, and it is hard to trust after that, especially knowing your husband is a good looking guy who has shagged many women. Also, Pete, i can understand his jealousy, with his wife being a glamour model, and known for her breasts. “Everything about this woman is fake, including her ‘marriage’ and she herself has never ‘achieved’ anything because she’s always had someone else to do it for her, lol I
    wouldn’t even be surprised if she hired someone to do her blowjobs…although nah..I think she enjoys those too much.” – i feel this is a unfair comment as Katie is not a stupid woman she has done things for herself and managed to get far, and so what if she enjoys giving blow jobs? doesn’t make her a slag…which she is not!! She has a good figure and if you got it you might aswell faulnt it ay. She is not fake, just because she has fake breasts and hair ect; this is how she feels comfortable with herself. She is very real and upfront about herself, and she knows this is a good way to make money. Good on her! If you could do that, wouldn’t you?

  11. Pandora says:

    Seems that Katie has always been a bit “out of control” – right back from when she was pregnant with poor little Harvey and still being pictured (right up to her due date) out partying, drinking and staggering all over the place! You reap what you sow.

  12. Lisa says:

    I agree with Chloe. She’s a lot less fake than celebrities who pretend their life is 100% peachy, haha

  13. MSat says:

    Why did she leave Harvey at home? That poor kid always gets the shaft. Can you imagine having that whorish, orange boozehound as your mother?

  14. czarina says:

    MSat–that was my first thought, too! She took Harvey’s brother and sister and left him with a nanny??? So, poor Harvey loses his mother and his siblings?
    Okay, it’s unfair to be too judgmental here…it could be that Katie is finding a place to live first, then moving Harvey and his nanny. It just amazes me that a mother could leave with only SOME of her kids!!

  15. Shay says:

    I call shenanigans. Seems like they’re doing it to get attention.

  16. geronimo says:

    Yep. Agree on the shenanigans. Looking increasingly like that. Tired sad old careers needing a jump start.

  17. Leggy says:

    For heavens sake… do you lot really believe all this tosh about a split up!! No way is Peter Andre leaving Katie Price, because he hasnt spent all her money yet!!!

    As for the pre nuptual agreement theyre supposed to have… well I hope it covers all the properties in Cyprus, Australia, The Gulf and a few other places that Pete’s been buying up on his travels and letting his family run em.. if the first tv series is to be believed.

    Still if it is true and the pre nup stands at least Peter has still got his singing career to fall back on… mind you I dunno what buskers earn on the tube now, but would guess most of em make more than him because most of them can sing.

    At least the long standing joke about Katie having 2 huge tits is true. One of ’em is Pete and the other one is her manager.
