Yes, really: Jordan's offered her old rival a roof over her head

Katie Price met his parents, declared her undying love with a tattoo and regularly parades Leandro Penna around London.

But don’t expect wedding bells any time soon, because behind closed doors Katie Price and her Argentinian toyboy have had a series of secret monumental bust-ups.


Well, it’s all down to Katie’s long-time foe Kerry Katona.

According to pals, Leo, 26, and Jordan’s romance is under pressure and they’ve been at each other’s throats for a while.

The final straw came last week when Katie, 33, announced she wanted to join forces with Kerry, 30, who’s facing crippling debts after parting from her former manager Claire Powell.

The pair had initially become close friends when they met on I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004, but fell out when Katie called Kerry‘s then-husband Mark 
Croft a ‘controlling bully’.

A source tells Now: ‘Katie‘s wanted to make up with Kerry for a while, so she contacted her after reading all the reports about her having to leave the mansion her former management were leasing for her.

‘Despite everything that’s happened in the past, she didn’t want Kerry to be homeless and fall by the wayside.’
