The glamour model's symbolic gesture of inking out her husband's name tattoo signals marriage end
In a signal to the world that her marriage is definitively finished, Katie Price has had a tattoo with husband Peter Andre’s name crossed out on her wrist.
Rather than have the original ‘Pete’ tattoo removed, the glamour model stopped by a tattoo parlour in Ibiza and shelled out £85 to have a black cross inked over Andre’s name, which sits just above another tattoo of the estranged couple’s daughter’s name, Princess [Tiáamii].
Price showcased the crude manoeuvre while on board a yacht in the Spanish island, surrounded by a bevy of male models. Sporting a white string bikini to highlight her burgeoning tango tan, Price held court while her male companions – including ‘boyfriend’ Anthony Lowther – looked on.
Speculation grew last week that Price had had the tattoo removed altogether after she was photographed leaving a tattoo parlour wearing a blue plaster on her wrist.
The symbolic gesture will no doubt incense Andre who is currently on a break in Cyprus with the ex-couple’s two children Junior, 4, Princess Tiáamii, 1 and Price’s son, Harvey, 7.
While Katie has Tweeted in the last few days that, ‘He left me nt [sic] me leave him,’ Peter has responded in his weekly New! Magazine column saying: ‘I know everyone is waiting for me to comment on all the stories in the papers regarding me and Kate, but I honestly can’t read any of them because I know it will only cause me pain.’
‘I just don’t want to put myself through it. There are only three people in the world that are my priority at the moment and that’s the kids.’
