Jordan split 'inevitable'

Katie Price was expected to call time on her marriage to Alex Reid on Tuesday, but there’s still been no announcement. 

Speculation over the fragile state of their relationship has been rife for months.

The couple did their best to scotch rumours by selling pictures of them sharing a meal on holiday over the New Year to a newspaper, but last week Katie, 32, confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in showbiz: they’re headed for splitsville.

Taking to her Twitter page, she said: To answer my fans’ questions…our marriage is in crisis.

‘Always look on bright side.’

Either Alex, 35, has given up playing Mr Nice Guy or Katie just pushed him one step too far with her Twitter comment: he was left fuming.

He believes that she’s using their inevitable split to garner public sympathy.

Alex isn’t that stupid,’ says a friend.

He knows she came out looking bad after her split with Peter Andre, which is why he thinks she’s doing all she can to not be seen as the bad guy this time round.’

So why are you waiting, Jord? Alex already knows your game.

He doesn’t think she’ll ever be totally happy as she’s not over Peter,’ adds his pal.

Jordan’s someone who can’t handle not being in control and when Pete walked out on her, she couldn’t cope with it.

‘It took Alex a while to realise, but he knows he can’t give her what she needs, which he thinks is Peter.

‘He tried everything to make things work between them but it was obviously doomed from the start.’

Oh Alex – relegated to rebound status, eh?
