British model Katie Price and her ex-husband Peter Andre are expected to have a dramatic showdown in court when they take the stand in the slander and libel case. Read more on this story below.
Katie Price and her former husband singer Peter Andre have been tabloid favorites after falling in love on a reality show called “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here” back in 2004. But now Katie and Peter will be forced to air their dirty laundry in court this week.
Andre and Price married in 2005 but went through a nasty divorce four years later, finalized in September 2009.
Just a month later, Katie claimed Peter was dating his manager Claire Powell while on a talk show and Powell sued for damages.
Peter filed a lawsuit against his former wife for slander and libel, requesting a judge to issue an injunction to prevent Price from issuing “similar words defamatory of the claimant”.
The singer is seeking damages and both Katie and Peter are expected to testify at London’s High Court when the case is heard.
Both Price, 32, and Andre, 37, are said to have witnesses and family members who will be taking the stand.
Price’s new husband, cagefighter Alex Reid, 35, is not expected to testify in court but will likely be there to support Katie.
The court battle begins on Thursday and will reportedly last a week.
A source says: “Katie thinks the case is a waste of time. But Peter’s sick and tired of having to worry over what she’s going to say about him next. Adding, “There’ll be a lot of revelations about the end of their marriage.”
Katie Price and Peter Andre have two children together, Junior, five, and three-year-old Princess Tiaamii.
