The strain is beginning to show on her face
From famously failed romances to surgery disasters, Katie Price has had more than her fair share of troubled times during her 22-year showbiz career.
And in recent pictures, the strain was beginning to show.
She looked puffy-faced and swollen as she celebrated her 40th birthday in Belgium with her new toyboy, personal trainer Kris Boyson – worlds away from the way she looked when she first rose to fame as a fresh-faced glamour model in the 90s.
And we can reveal that despite rumours she’s planning even more surgery to fix her ‘f***ed up’ face, friends fear she’s already ruined her looks for good.
‘Kate’s once-natural beauty has all but dried up – she looks scrawny and somewhat past it,’ an insider tells us.
‘The fillers have left her face bumpy, her skin keeps breaking out, her eyelashes are no longer her own – she has none – and her eyes are squinted from where the correctional surgery went wrong.’
We spoke to leading cosmetic surgeon and Chief Medical Officer of Dr MediSpa, Dr Munir Somji, who told us, ‘She’s gone too far. It seems no amount of surgery will satisfy her.’
But it’s little wonder Katie – who recently split from her third husband Kieran Hayler, 31 – wasn’t pleased on her big day, as she was later seen picking up the bill, while Kris, 29, wandered off – something our insider tells us the television personality is ignoring in a bid to stay young.
‘No surgery will fix Kate’s face. The only thing keeping her young is dating toy boys,’ our source claims.
‘Kate feels that dating a younger man reinstates her youthful appeal, so she overlooks the fact that they are using her for their own gain.’

And while Katie and Kris might look like the real deal in public, holding hands and packing on the PDAs, our insider tells us the feeling isn’t mutual on Kris’ side.
According to an onlooker, Kris– who first appeared in Holly Willoughby’s dating show Meet the Parents – seemed withdrawn when the duo went out for dinner on Katie’s birthday.
‘He was constantly taking the p*** out of her,’ the insider says. ‘But she was so drunk, she didn’t realise.’
Last month, Katie left fans horrified as she partied at Essex hotspot Sheesh, Chigwell, gyrating on TOWIE’s James ‘Arg’ Argent in a see-through dress and eating from the palm of Love Island star Rykard Jenkins’ hand.
‘What a disgrace this woman is. Grow up and get some self-respect. These men are laughing at her,’ a fan slammed.
It’s this behaviour our insider tells us that’s pushing Kris away.
The source says, ‘He hates her singing and her swearing. He doesn’t think it’s very ladylike. He finds old women gross – he hates the fake and gypsy look.
‘Kris just sees Kate as the perfect platform, as he wants his own gym, notoriety and brand. He’ll use her and send her packing!’
So with Kieran appearing to move on, just last week having his tattoo ‘K’ removed from his ring finger, as he focuses on the kids, and Kris already losing interest, could Pricey be left on her own this time round?
