Katie Price says she still doesn’t know why her marriage to Peter Andre broke down

Katie Price has continued to insist she still she doesn’t know the real reason why her marriage to Peter Andre broke down.

The former glamour model, 42, split from Pete, 48, in 2009 after four years of marriage. 

And Katie looked back at her first marriage in Dame Esther Rantzen and Adrian Mills’ That’s After Life podcast.

Esther asked her: ‘You were making a reality show with Peter Andre and I think you and Pete actually split. Right, you want to know why I think that was?’

Katie, who shares son Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with Pete, said:  ‘Yeah, I’d love to know. I want to know. I never did anything wrong.’

According to The Sun, Esther then told the television personality that the reality show Katie & Peter, which ran for nine series on ITV2, was ‘quite damaging’.

Esther said- particularly referring to their last series Katie & Peter: Stateside: ‘It got into your relationship and it made you look so dominant and it made him look so gentle. 

‘And you know how it is with television – the viewers always like the underdog – and it began to look as if Pete was in love with you and trying to do what you wanted and nothing was quite right for you.’

Katie said she ‘totally agreed’ with Esther, 80, and said their relationship had become toxic ‘especially towards the end’.

She added: ‘But the way I look at is, it happened, you can’t change the past. But it’s been a horrific journey since then.

‘I’m still here, I didn’t actually push the button to commit suicide, that’s why I went to get help and I will never, ever let anyone or anything around me ever get me in that state again.’

Mail Online has contacted Pete’s representatives for comment.

Just nine months after her divorce from Pete, Katie went on to marry MMA fighter Alex Reid in Las Vegas.

Pete, meanwhile, found love with Emily MacDonagh, 31. The couple tied the knot in 2015 and went on to have two children together; Amelia, seven, and Theo, four.   

Katie is now loved-up with Carl Woods, 32, and has made no secret of her hopes to fall pregnant now she has found love with the one-time Love Island star. 

The reality star recently declared she was ‘so happy to be free’ as her union with Kieran Hayler was finally legally dissolved.

She revealed her ill-fated marriage to Kieran had finally come to an official end, as they signed divorce papers three years after their split.

The star told The Sun that she and Kieran became officially divorced just days ago, paving the way for her to make Carl husband number four.

She told the publication: ‘Finally, we’ve signed the divorce papers. I’m so happy that I’m free from that marriage. The only good thing that came out of it was my children.

‘I can now continue my life with all the badness behind me. All I can do is wish him luck. I can’t wait to continue my life with Carl.’

The Real Husbands of Katie Price

In the decades since she first rose to fame, Katie Price has enjoyed – and quite likely endured – a decidedly busy love life that has seen her walk down the aisle three times before heading to divorce court in equal measure. Here’s a look at the trio with whom she exchanged ‘I dos’… and ‘I don’ts’:

 

PETER ANDRE (2005 – 2009)

The nation got to watch love blossom between the pair when they starred alongside one another on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here back in 2004. The flying sparks soon became nuptials, with blushing bride Katie and her erstwhile pop hunk beau tying the knot at Highclere Castle (the grand Berkshire estate of Downton Abbey fame) in September 2005. Katie, who was already mother to son Harvey (born in 2002 following a romance with former footballer Dwight Yorke), soon started a family with her new husband. The couple welcomed son Junior in 2005, while daughter Princess followed in 2007. Creation between the pair also came artistically, with the release of reality programmes, a failed talk show and a foray into the music world. However, after four years of securing their position as the Ken and Barbie of reality TV and glossy magazine deals, the pair announced in 2019 that they were going their separate ways.

 

 

ALEX REID (2010 – 2012) 

Katie soon switched her romantic allegiance from a onetime ab-bearing pop heartthrob to musclebound MMA fighter Alex Reid. The two met at Michelle Heaton’s 30th birthday party at London’s Cafe de Paris. But shortly after they got together, Katie dumped Alex on live TV, only for him to win her back and the pair go from strength to strength. Weeks after proudly cheering her man on to a win on the 2010 edition of Celebrity Big Brother (also featuring none other than her ex-boyfriend Dane Bowers), Katie jetted off to Las Vegas to tie the knot with her new partner in February 2010 after just seven months of dating – and nine months after divorcing Peter. Following their Sin City sojourn, the pair returned to their native UK, where they had a formal ceremony – which was filmed for a TV series. However, after just 11 months of marriage, the pair announced they were splitting and their divorce was finalised in March 2012. While Katie declared at the time that she married Alex ‘too soon’, she would later go on to reveal that a major factor in their split was his cross-dressing alter-ego Roxanne.

 

 

KIERAN HAYLER (2013 – 2021)

Showing herself to be a true woman of the times, Katie embarked on a romance with former stripper Kieran after the two met on the now-defunct Blackberry Messenger service in 2012. And just two months after altering the paths of their lives via those thumb-tapped fateful opening messages, the twosome would go on to exchange nuptials in the Caribbean. Kieran proposed to a thrilled Katie on Christmas Day 2012, and just three weeks later, the pair would be pronounced husband and wife in the idyllic shores of the Bahamas on January 16, 2013. They had their marriage blessed in Weston-super Mare, and in the months that followed, it appeared that Katie had finally found her happily ever after. They welcomed son Jett in August 2013, and daughter Bunny in August 2014. But Katie’s world came crashing down in 2014, when she discovered that Kieran had cheated on her with her close friend of 20 years, Jane Pountney, and was enjoying a fling with another of her pals, Chrissy Thomas. After publicly lashing out at all parties involved (and naming her pet pigs after her friends-turned-foes), Katie appeared determined to make things work when she renewed her vows with Kieran in 2015. But alas, it would not turn out to be third time lucky for Katie, as the pair split in 2018 amid even more cheating allegations. Their ‘amicable’ divorce was finalised in early 2021.
