The Only Way Is Essex star Chloe Sims has spoken out about her concerns for friend Katie Price.
She’s revealed that Katie, formerly known as Jordan, currently looks “vulnerable and thin” after the recent turmoil she’s been through.
It’s no secret the mother-of-five has had a rough year, with relationship break-ups, a fractious relationship with the respective fathers of her children, an arrest on suspicion of drink driving and money troubles – she has nearly being declared bankrupt twice.
She’s also been devastated by her mother’s terminal illness diagnosis.
Now, 36-year-old Chloe has opened up about her worries for Katie, saying she “looks thin” but thinks she’s fat.
Speaking to Closer, the reality TV star and Beauty Bar owner said that the last time she’d seen Katie she had seemed “vulnerable”.
She told the magazine: “When you speak to her, she always puts herself down. She’s very thin, but she’ll say how fat she looks.”
Chloe, a single mum herself, went on to say she’d love to help support the 40-year-old after her year from hell.
The Celebrity Ghost Hunt said: “I think it would be a shame if things don’t get better for her. She needs to surround herself with people she can trust.
“When I was first famous, I got so excited, I’d go out and get drunk, and get photographed doing stupid [bleep] and fall out of cabs.
“Then it hit me that the internet was not going away and I didn’t want my daughter to see that. That’s never a good look for anyone as a mum.”
Earlier this year, Katie was filmed rambling and beside drug paraphernalia while on a holiday in Spain without her kids.
She returned to the UK and checked herself into The Priory suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder which ’caused drug binges’.
Christmas has been a particularly difficult time for Katie, who spent part of Christmas Day with her kids Bunny and Jett after allegedly refusing to hand them back to their dad Kieran.
The Mirror reports that she then had a change of heart and allowed ex-husband Kieran to have daughter Bunny and son Jett, along with Kieran’s girlfriend Michelle Penticost and her son.
Katie had hoped to have all five of her kids together with her on Christmas Day.
Over the festive period, ED! reported that Katie longs to end her bitter rift with ex-husband Peter Andre.
On Sunday December 16, Peter responded to criticism that he wouldn’t let Katie see their children Princess and Andre, tweeting: “I never normally respond to anything. But of course the children will be with their mum for Christmas. This was always the case. And so they should. She is their mum.”
Meanwhile, Katie hasn’t shared any social media updates about her festive fun since Christmas Eve, when she posted an Instagram picture of herself cuddling Bunny in bed.
