Katie Price says she wants people to look at her as a good mum for her kids as she faces custody battle
Katie Price has met with her mum for moral support after confessing she is ‘having the biggest crisis of my personal life ever’.
After returning from a week of revelry in Ibiza, where the glamour model was regularly snapped cavorting with a bevy of male models, the 31-year-old has admitted she had behaved badly abroad and her conduct was not fair on estranged hubby, Peter Andre.
Price confessed she had been ‘trying to shove things in his face and make him feel jealous’.
Speaking to the News of the World this weekend, Price faced up to her actions following her split with Andre and promised to change her ways.
‘I’m still so angry with what he’s done and I’m not going to take back what I’ve said about him. But I do understand now that this is hard on him too,’ she said.
‘I want people to look at me as a good mum for my kids but I’ve been having the biggest crisis of my personal life ever, so it’s been hard,’ she admitted to the Sunday newspaper.
The 31-year-old has turned to her mum, Amy Price, for help and support while she attempts to get over her marriage break-up.
Amy was reportedly very unhappy with Katie’s behaviour on the party island, while Peter kept a much lower profile on holiday in Cyprus with the couple’s children.
Katie’s mum revealed her worries about the stark contrast between the estranged couple’s way of dealing with the breakdown, fearing if her daughter’s partying ways continued, she would face an uphill battle to secure custody of their children.
Andre is said to be compiling a catalogue of details as to why he should be granted full custody of the ex-couple’s children, starting with Price’s antics in Ibiza.
Price’s bridesmaid, Michelle Heaton, told The People newspaper that it was unfair that the model’s reputation had suffered so much, saying Andre’s camp had leaked details to ‘twist’ the reality of the situation.
‘Pete had his reason for going and he told her why. Whether it’s a justifiable reason or not, I don’t know. People will have to judge for themselves when it comes out.’
When prompted to comment on her recent holiday fling with model Anthony Lowther, Price insisted the pair had not slept together and that the 28-year-old was a ‘real cool dude and a great friend’.
