Katie Price releases divorce statement

Katie Price has released a further statement on her divorce from Kieran Hayler.

Katie said that she is “appalled” by her husband Kieran Hayler’s alleged affair with her best friend in a statement confirming her intention to divorce him.

The glamour model and businesswoman, who is six months pregnant with Hayler’s second child, defended her decision to announce the end of her third marriage on Twitter this afternoon, describing the messages as “a sign of my heart breaking”.

In a statement released on her website Price said: “I appreciate most people will have seen my tweets on the subject of my marriage to Kieran.

“I make no apologies for them though it will be appreciated that, sending them immediately after Kieran confirmed to me what he had been doing for the last seven months, those tweets were a sign of my heart breaking. That he was doing it with a close friend of nearly 20 years is hard to understand.

“This statement however is from my head, not my heart. I am appalled that someone I loved, trusted and believed in has behaved in this way. If he had so little respect for our relationship I would have hoped he would have thought about our child or the one that we have on the way.

“That he did not means he will no longer be part of my life. I will do all I can to ensure he maintains a relationship with his children should he want that. I am so grateful for the love of my children and family at this time.”

Katie and Kieran married in the Caribbean in January 2013, just one month after they were reported to have begun dating. They became parents to son Jett Riviera in August.
