Katie Price wants the absurd lies to stop!

Katie Price is fed up with ridiculous rumours about her life, including claims that she’s gone to Australia to ‘escape’ ex Peter Andre and is ‘stressed and starving’.

During a recent appearance on Loose Women, she told viewers: ‘I don’t talk to Pete any more.’

Katie is adamant she’s got nothing to fear when her long-running legal case against Pete goes to court next year.

She’s suing him and his management, alleging they deliberately tried to paint her in a negative light after their 2009 split (claims they strongly deny).

It’s thought the case will throw up allegations that she had an affair with her married riding instructor Andrew Gould – vehemently denied by both parties – as well as the famed ‘big’ secret behind her and Pete‘s split.

Katie‘s also been accused of ‘starving herself’ with the stress over the court case, even though the trial date is yet to be confirmed and is likely to be many months away.

Katie‘s pal reveals: ‘She’s not even down to a size 8 yet. Yes, she’s lost a lot of the pregnancy weight but she doesn’t really care about it to be honest.

‘Her priorities have changed. Plus, she’s not got the time to be in the gym, just horse riding when she can fit it in.

‘She’s sick of being attacked all the time over things that are simply inventions.

‘She might seem like a tough woman but it still hurts.’

Katie Price‘s explosive new autobiography Love, Lipstick And Lies is out now.
