It was claimed Katie, 40, had earlier attended her ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson's birthday party.

According to The Sun, Metropolitan Police have now confirmed the reality TV star was released under investigation shortly after Kris was pictured at Plumstead Station in South London on Wednesday afternoon.

ED! has contacted representatives for Katie for comment.

Katie is currently seeking treatment in rehab for post-traumatic stress disorder.

She sought help after a difficult year that included mum Amy being diagnosed with a terminal lung condition, her marriage to third husband Kieran breaking down, and a romance with boyfriend Kris ending.

Neither Katie nor Kris has spoken out about today's reports.

Katie went public with their relationship in June, saying Kris "ticked all the boxes", but by August, the romance had fizzled out and Katie was pictured getting cosy with another man on holiday in Majorca.

Kris announced their split via Instagram Stories, telling fans: "This wasn't an easy decision for me to make, however @officialkatieprice and I are no longer together!

"It's just clear we both want different things. Who knows what the future will bring but I wish her all the best!!"
