Just like Peter Andre, Alex is maintaining a dignified silence

Alex Reid has vowed to keep quiet amidst the media storm surrounding his split from Katie Price.

He is particularly concerned that the glamour model’s kids aren’t upset.

‘Given the fact there are children involved who Alex cares deeply about, Alex hopes that people will respect his privacy at this difficult time,’ says the cage fighter’s new lawyer.

‘Despite numerous substantial offers of money, Alex made a decision to
maintain a dignified silence.’

Katie, 32 – mum to Junior, 5, and Princess Tiaamii, 3, with first husband Peter Andre, and son Harvey, 8, with footballer Dwight Yorke – confirmed the end of her 11-month marriage to cage fighter Alex, 35, last week.

She was particularly miffed about ‘posed’ photos of Alex and Junior in a gym which were published as their marriage was disintegrating.

Alex
is fully aware that I have sought to remove my children from the public
eye now they are of an age to understand and be affected by media
coverage of them,’ Katie said in her official statement. 

‘I feel incredibly let down that he did this while asking me for more time to discuss our relationship and just hope that the stories circulating that he sold those pictures are not true.

‘Alex would like to portray himself as honourable and I hope he acts that way.’
