Why did Katie Price and Peter Andre split up, who has custody of their children and do they still talk?
KATIE Price and Peter Andre went on to marry and have two children after meeting on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004.
But more than a decade after they first laid eyes on each other the pair remarried other people and rarely speak about one another in public. Here is the lowdown on their relationship…
Why did Katie Price and Peter Andre split up?
Peter was Katie's first husband after they met on I'm A Celebrity in 2004.
The couple were married from 2005 to 2009 and had two children – Junior and Princess Tiaamii.
In the days that followed their split in May 2009, it was claimed they'd had a huge bust up after she was caught on a secret night out with her hunky riding instructor Andrew Gould.
Hoping to keep her partying with Andrew a secret amid claims of Pete's "jealousy", she was forced to come clean when she was pictured on the front page of the newspaper with him.
However, they both denied any suggestion they'd been unfaithful but in 2012 she revealed Pete had ended their three-and-a-half-year marriage because he thought otherwise.
"I never wanted the split. It’s unfortunate that he thought I was having an affair," she told Radio 4's Woman's Hour, insisting he had no proof.
Why does Peter Andre have custody of their children?
In June 2018, Katie confirmed Junior and Princess were living with their dad Peter after the singer banned her from seeing them due to her wild behaviour.
Katie also left Peter fuming after he discovered she'd left his children alone with boyfriend Kris Boyson.
At the time, a representative for Katie confirmed the kids were living in the Andre family home, telling the Mirror: "What is important [is] that the focus is on what is best for the children during tough times as Peter has acknowledged.
"Katie is a remarkable mother, Peter is a wonderful father, together they are doing what is best for their children."
In August 2018, it was revealed their stay had been extended while Katie sorted out her divorce from Kieran Hayler.
An insider said: “Katie’s life is a bit of a mess at the moment and she needs to focus on getting back on top of her finances to create a stable home life for the children.
“Katie has been informed that Princess and Junior will be staying with Pete and his family for the rest of the holidays while she sorts everything out."
The two children did spend Christmas Day with their mother but are still residing with their father.
Do Katie Price and Peter Andre still talk?
Things have been tense between the couple to say the least, with lots of sniping at each other in the press.
However, things look like they may be on the up, as in February 2019 Katie praised Peter for "always being a great dad" to their children Junior and Princess.
She paid the singer a rare compliment as she wished him a happy birthday on Instagram.
Sharing a snap of their two children hugging Peter, she wrote: "Happy birthday to @peterandre
"Thank you for always being a great dad to Princess and Junior."
On April 16, 2019, Katie launched into an attack of her ex Peter saying he "does her head in" by "trying to bring her down."
She told Closer magazine: "Honestly Pete’s doing my head in. I can’t stand him and all the legal letters he sends me, he’s tried so hard to bring me down.
“He’s so different from what he was. He brings me so much stress but there is nothing that he or any of my exes can do to bring me down or get to me.
"All these people have wronged me, I didn’t make them do it, I didn’t ask for it.”
On Thursday, August 1, 2019 The Sun exclusively revealed Peter had asked his ex to take a drug test after she admitted to taking cocaine “weekly for about half a year” on the Victoria Derbyshire Show in February.
A source close to the former glamour model, said the Mysterious Girl singer asked his former spouse to take hair strand drug tests, which she refused to do.
The insider insisted Katie had “put her foot down” and told her team she has “done enough” tests – and won’t be doing any more.
“She’s sick of it – she feels she’s done enough of them and has nothing to prove now,” the source added.
