Katie Price - aka Jordan - and Leandro Penna have showbiz day out
Katie and Argentinian model Leandro, 25 – who flew to the UK after they hooked up in LA last month – took Junior, 5, and his sister Princess, 3, to an X Factor meet and greet session at London’s O2 Arena yesterday.
‘Of course it’s upsetting seeing Junior draped around her latest flame but it’s not really a surprise,’ claims a close friend of Pete, 38.
‘Going to an X Factor event isn’t the sort of thing a celebrity like Kate can do without being spotted.
‘This is a blatant publicity stunt. She did the same thing with Alex Reid a couple of years back.’
Katie‘s new Living reality show kicks off this week and many believe the trip was all for the cameras – despite the glamour girl recently criticising both Pete and her estranged husband Alex, 35, for exploiting her kids for publicity.
‘Have good day me and kids gonna have fab day they are excited to where I’m taking them too x,’ Katie, 32, Tweeted.
But despite the Twitpics of them holding hands and snogging, the glamour girl insists she’s just having a bit of much-needed fun with the Argentinian hunk after her separation from husband Alex Reid in January.
‘I am having lots and lot of fun with Leandro and it is great after what has been frankly a really grim last few months,’ Jordan, 32, tells the Daily Star.
‘It is very light-hearted, nothing intense.
‘But we are enjoying being with each other a lot.’
The glamour model took the Argentinan model to a karaoke bar on Wednesday and the pair partied until 4am.
‘You only live once people should do what feels right to them selves,’ Katie Tweeted last night.
‘Nobody is perfect and I’m far from perfect but I can’t hide who I am.’
Meanwhile her ex Alex, 35 – from whom she’s filed for divorce – is keeping a low profile as his father recovers from open heart surgery.
