Split from Jordan hit Alex Reid hard

Alex Reid‘s mum has admitted how difficult it was to see her son so heartbroken after his split from wife Katie Price in January.

The cage fighter moved back in with Carol, 70, after the break-up, which saw Katie, 33, accuse Alex, 36, of using her children for publicity.

‘He married her for life and was devastated that it didn’t turn out that way,’ says Carol.

‘It was really hard hearing him cry. I’d hear him just sobbing in his bedroom.’

Alex‘s heart has now been ‘mended’ by Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton, 27, and Carol is not sorry that his marriage to Jordan is over.

‘I don’t hold any grudges but I don’t miss Kate,’ she tells Best magazine.

‘I didn’t form a strong bond.’
