Footballer dishes the dirt on his relationship with glamour model Katie Price
We knew it wasn’t going to be full of glowing praise, but Dwight Yorke’s autobiography savages his former lover and mother of his son, Katie Price.
In a memoir stuffed full of juicy secrets, Dwight speaks for the first time about his relationship with the glamour model known as Jordan.
The couple have a son together, Harvey, 7, who is blind.
When Katie told Dwight she was pregnant, the footballer says they discussed not having the baby due to their turbulent relationship.
‘My reaction was immediate; there was no way we could have this baby,’ he says.
‘I told her “Our relationship is too unstable. I don’t think it’s right”.’
Dwight then says the first year after Harvey‘s birth was ‘the most distressing thing I’d ever had to deal with’.
He describes Katie‘s partying and apparent lack of commitment to her son.
‘I challenged her about this lifestyle. She’d desperately wanted our baby, but this was her idea of motherhood?’ he writes in Born to Score, serialised in the News of the World.
The couple split up during that year, but Dwight says he wanted to ‘throttle’ singer Peter Andre when Katie fell for him after their meeting on I’m a Celebrity.
When he used to go to the couple’s home to see Harvey, Dwight says they would put on outrageous displays of public affection and described the decor as ‘a shrine to their own vanity‘.
‘I found it creepy. I couldn’t walk down a hallway without… the pair of them draped over each other.’
Katie and Peter officially divorced earlier this month and are currently locked in a PR battle to win public support for their respective careers.
