Update: 16 July 2014
Reality TV star and glamorous businesswoman, Katie Price seems to be making a habit of keeping herself in the spotlight and news either inadvertently or deliberately! Her love life in itself, holds such a fascination for not only the vulgar curious, but also regular folks that it has served to keep many a tabloid in business! In the latest instalment of ‘Katie-Price’s-Love-Travails’ the mother of four and expectant mother-of-one seems to be undergoing a change of heart vis-à-vis her plans of divorcing her current and third husband and father of son, Jett Riviera and unborn child, Kieran Hayler, according to an interview she gave with internet radio station Fubar. She expressed the hope that he would emerge a better man from the cheating scandal and added that he was getting help for his problems and that she would stick by him through this time, even though she wouldn’t forgive him.
The whole sordid mess started in May of 2014, when just a few days after announcing the happy news that she was pregnant again for the fifth time, she took to the social media to state that she was going to divorce her husband, Kieran because he had cheated on her with her friend, Jane Pountney. She again took to twitter with a vengeance and trashed Kieran and Jane Pountney after Kieran, a builder and sometimes stripper, publicly accepted the fact that he had had a torrid sexual affair with Jane. Obviously trying to make amends for all the mess he had made, later in the month, he too, took to twitter to wish Katie a happy birthday and reiterated his love for her. In June 2013, Katie continued with virulence towards her once old pal of nearly twenty years, and shared a ridiculous snap of Jane’s on her widely followed twitter page.
In the meantime conflicting reports of Jane Pountney’s husband, Derrick filing for divorce as well as news of rapprochement between the two, appeared in tabloids. Twice divorced, British model, Katie Price married her third husband, Kieran Hayler in 2013. Her previous two marital attempts have been with singer Peter Andre and with reality TV star and cage fighter, Alex Reid.
Her first marriage with Peter Andre was from 2005 to 2009. She met him when they were shooting the TV show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! In May, 2009, the couple announced that they were separating and apparently it was Peter Andre’s decision to do so. While Katie Price said in an interview that Peter’s unfounded jealousy about Katie’s relationship with dressage trainer Andrew Gould, was partly to blame, Peter Andre refuted this allegation and hinted at some other big secret behind their split; a secret which has since then not appeared in the public arena. There was also the rumour that the reason for their split could be also attributed to that time when she was spotted in a Bristol night club despite a mutual agreement to not venture out solo, it probably became a deal breaker for Peter Andre. In 2013, Katie Price spilled some personal matters in public and stated that Peter’s obsession with fame and money and his attitude towards their marriage, as a kind of ‘career’ while hers being that it was love that kept her in it, had become major issues for her. She also revealed her heartbreak when he callously cut off ties with her on phone. She has said that sharing custody of their two children, son Junior Savva Andreas Andre and daughter, Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre caused her physical pain.
Her second marriage was to MMA fighter and former Hollyoaks actor Alex Reid in 2010 was a quickie one, in Las Vegas. She had dated Alex for less than a year before deciding to tie the knot with him. She met Alex, when he was a struggling actor, just shortly after she broken up with her first husband. He came into the spotlight because of their relationship and he even went on the win the TV reality show Celebrity Big Brother. They broke up for a very short while and the public even got to see him getting dumped by Katie on live TV, but reunited after a ‘heartbroken’ Katie decided to resume their relationship. In 2012, they split again, this time for real and a year later; Katie Price divorced Alex Reid, citing ‘unreasonable behaviour’ on his part. In a statement Katie confessed to be having had many difficulties with Alex, partly owing to the fact that they had got married so quickly and also because of Alex changing from the man he was at the beginning of the relationship. His ‘desire to promote himself’ aided in their getting distant from each other. She also didn’t take it too kindly when Alex allegedly ‘used’ her kid and got photographed with him against her express wishes of not exposing her children to the unkind gaze of the media, even though Alex denied this particular claim. Katie has very recently exposed his ‘vile sexual depravities’ in her autobiography, ‘Love, Lipstick and Lies’, that had left her feeling frightened and vulnerable.
Among the many romantic relationships of Katie Price, names of a myriad range of backgrounds pop up, including those of celebrities and sportsmen, including footballers Teddy Sheringham with whom she went out for only a few dates, Dwight Yorke with whom she reportedly said that they had a series of ‘drunken shags’ and not a real relationship, singer Gareth Gates, then just seventeen years old, and Gladiators star Ace, Warren Furman with whom she lived in till his jealousy got in the way of their relationship. Katie had her first child, son Harvey with football player, Dwight Yorke. She also dated Danny Cipriani for a while and split with him when she found him cheating on her; she even went through a traumatic abortion after she found out that boyfriend, Dane Bowers of the boy band, Another Level, had been cheating on her. In 2012, she was briefly engaged to Argentine model, Leandro Penna, but broke their engagement stating that it a mutual decision.
