Model and reality star Katie Price has confirmed her second marriage after weeks of speculation by the media.
Katie Price, who also goes by the name of Jordan, married cage fighter Alex Reid last February in Las Vegas, months after divorcing singer Peter Andre.
There have been rumors that Katie’s second marriage was in trouble in the tabloids for weeks.
Now Price has written a long statement to the media in Britain, saying they have split and that her marriage to Alex Reid was a “mistake”.
Her statement reads, “Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months. I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly – we all make mistakes and this was one.
“However, Alex changed from the man I fell in love with, and some of his behavior became difficult for me to understand and caused issues. I have tried to help him with these issues but they have put a considerable strain on our relationship. Our difficulties were also not helped by Alex becoming more fascinated by life in the media eye.”
Price also claims Reid is refusing to leave her home, which has been adapted to suit her blind son Harvey’s needs.
She adds, “It is true that I have asked Alex to leave the family home and that he will not do so. I would leave myself but the house is equipped for Harvey’s needs. Alex would like to portray himself as honorable and I hope he acts that way.
“I am deeply upset that my relationship with Alex has failed but I know it is the right thing for my children and I that we separate. My children are my absolute priority in this and they are being shielded from what is happening.”
Alex Reid is said to be asking for $1 million in their divorce settlement.
