Jordan insists that her second husband changed

Katie Price longs for her marriage to Alex Reid to be over – and for him to shut up.

The estranged couple, who married in February 2010, have not yet finalised their divorce, though the mum-of-three is now in love with Argentinian hunk Leandro Penna.

‘We could have worked but [Alex] changed,’ says Katie.

‘I would not give up on a marriage without good reason.

‘I had to get out of my marriage to Alex or I would have been damaged. 

‘I couldn’t cope with it anymore, I was emotionally drained.’

Katie, 33, is enjoying a summer holiday in a luxury villa near Marbella with her kids – Harvey, 9, Junior, 6, and Princess, 4 – and 25-year-old Leandro‘s family.

‘I just want to get the divorce finalised and move on,’ she says.

‘I’m genuinely trying to say amicable with Alex but I think he’s being encouraged to talk about me.’
