Battered Alex too belittled to battle on
The couple’s marriage lasted just under a year and Alex tried desperately to make it work.
Alex has been very composed until now as he feels he has nothing to lose,’ a close pal tells Now.
‘He’s realised that, just like Peter, when Katie first met him she was all over him and he could do no wrong.
‘But she’s chipped – well actually, more like hammered – away at his self-esteem and left him feeling like absolute shit. She’d refuse him sex, then belittle him about not getting her pregnant.’
Having endured a series of rows during their marriage, it looks as though Alex, 35, won’t even be able to console himself with a big settlement because he’s likely to walk away with next to nothing.
She’s told him she’s only willing to offer him double the amount they earned as a couple, which included magazine deals and a three-part reality show,’ says an insider, ‘but only if he grants her a quick divorce.’
