Katie Price confirms split from husband Alex Reid
Katie Price has ended months of speculation over the state of her marriage to cage fighter Alex Reid by releasing a lengthy statement confirming their relationship is over.
A 600 word statement was released via Katie’s management last night in which the former glamour model referred to her 11-month long marriage to Reid as a “mistake” and something she rushed into.
The couple got together after being introduced at Katie Price’s pal Michelle Heaton’s Birthday party, just weeks after the mother of three split from her first husband Peter Andre. The reality TV star quickly moved her new man into the family home.
After just 9 months of dating, Katie and Alex wed in a quickie Las Vegas ceremony. The couple were due to celebrate their first wedding anniversary on February 2nd.
In the official statement, the 32 year old blames her estranged husband’s desire to promote himself in the public eye for the breakdown of their marriage saying it changed the dynamic of their relationship. The model also alluded to the couple’s failed attempts to conceive a baby via IVF which was reported to have put a strain on the marriage.
The cage fighter was pictured looking visibly upset as he moved out of the Surrey mansion he had shared with Katie, also known as Jordan. Alex was then seen moving back into his parents’ family home.
Writing on her Twitter blog this morning, the reality TV star thanked her fans for their support during this “sad time” but refused to comment any further.
