Family and friends fear for brittle Alex after his rapid marriage into Katie Price’s crazy world...


Just hours after Jordan and Alex Reid tied the knot, the bride had a face like thunder and the groom was fighting off photographers and verbal assaults from his new wife.

The 22-minute Las Vegas wedding that united the pair at the Wynn Hotel last week has already descended into the honeymoon from hell.

furious that Alex had existing plans to visit India for a TV show when she wanted him available to capitalise on their newlywed status – and she’s made no secret of her anger.

While in the Celebrity Big Brother house, Alex was unaware that wedding plans were underway and a hotel suite was being booked by Jordan’s friends for his wedding night.

The couple also had a well- documented fight on their wedding night when Alex, 34, showed too much interest in a lap dancer at a club they visited.  

Alex saw their US trip as the perfect opportunity to catch up with some of his showbiz pals from CBB, but his new wife’s business plans mean they’ve had little chance to relax together as a just-married couple.

While the wedding has been widely viewed as a cynical stunt to make a quick buck for Jordan, Alex is fast emerging as the victim of her colossal ambition.

Now spoke to several sources who are furious with Jordan and worried for his health.

One says: ‘She’s ruthless. She’ll chew Alex up and spit him out. We’re powerless to stop it. He’s genuinely in love and has the fame he always wanted.

‘The next stage will be babies. Alex has had therapy to cope with fame, but how will he survive now? Just a few months ago he was a personal trainer from Aldershot, living in the bedroom he grew up in.’

The only people to know about the wedding were Jordan’s pals Phil Turner and Gary Cockerill. It’s believed they booked the couple’s £6,000-a-night Planet Hollywood suite before Alex even knew about it.

Jordan made sure an ITV2 camera crew were there to film the wedding for her new reality show, starting this week.

Her mum Amy and sister Sophie found out when she was already on the plane. By the time Amy got hold of Jordan to, in her words, ‘ask what the hell was going on’ she was already married and hitting the strip clubs.
