Can Katie Price's plans to conquer the US help put an end to her bickering with Pete?
The glamour model, whose mood swings have reportedly sent her fed-up hubby over the edge, was pictured last week clinging to a rather uncomfortable-looking Peteas if she was on a mission to prove that her relationship is not at all under threat.
‘It’s no surprise that Jordan wants to show the world she and Pete are OK because she’s been under some heat,’ a source tells Now. ‘Pete’s at the end of his tether. Jordan’s a handful and he’s put up with a lot. She’s finally taken that into account.’
The couple are therefore said to be planning to go Stateside for two reasons: they’ll be in LA for four months from January in a bid to break the tough US market; and are also hoping that the time away will breathe fresh air into their relationship.
‘Jordan’s keen to get out of the UK and start afresh,’ reveals our source. ‘Apart from fame, she sees it as a chance to face any troubles with Pete.’
In the UK, Jordan, 30, has been busy juggling solo projects, including her home range for Matalan and new fragrance Besotted, while Pete, 35, has been in the studio.
The pair – who are parents to Harvey, six, Junior, three, and Princess, one – will move into a £4 million LA mansion to film the next series of their E! reality TV show. They’re already looking for schools for the kids.
‘It’s going to be full-on,’ says our source. ‘At least with public couples like the Beckhams, once they’re behind closed doors the cameras are off. With Pete and Jordan, it’s the opposite. In LA, between filming and public appearances, they’ll barely have alone time.’
