Alex clings to hope that marriage can survive
But Alex thought their love was forever.
He’s reported to be refusing to sign legal documents to confirm the couple’s break-up and thinks there’s a chance they can sort out their differences.
‘Alex spent thousands on Katie at Christmas with some really thoughtful gifts,’ says a source.
‘She paid for their holiday, some gym clothes and some horrible shirts which he hates.’
Miserable Alex, 35, is now sleeping in a spare room at 32-year-old Katie‘s mansion in Woldingham, Surrey.
‘He still thinks, given time, he could remind her why they fell in love in the first place,’ the insider tells The Sun.
‘He’s a broken man – he can’t believe it hasn’t worked out.
‘Katie told Alex to look after himself because she’s not going to pay another penny from her fortune to support him. That was the big signal to him that she’d left him high and dry.’
