Katie Price has told friends she ‘cannot face another court’ appearance, latest news reports claim.
However, the case will not be dropped.
The mum-of-five was involved in an alleged assault at home earlier this week.
What’s the latest Katie Price news?
According to The Sun, Katie is still feeling extremely vulnerable.
A source told the publication: “She absolutely stands by her account of events of that night given to police, but upon reflection isn’t sure she’s mentally strong enough to go through yet another court appearance.”
The insider also called it a “nightmare situation” for the former glamour model.

Despite her mental struggles, Katie has no plans to drop the case.
A police spokesman told the paper: “We have a duty of care to gather all evidence relating to this case and our inquiries continue.”
ED! has contacted Katie’s representative for comment.
Katie has appeared in court on a number of occasions over the years.
Last year, she was ordered to pay £250,000 to ex-husband Alex Reid after allegedly showing sex tape footage of him.
The star has also been taken to court for driving offences.

Following the incident, Katie opened up on being “punched” during the ordeal to The Sun.
She explained: “I’ve got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital. I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. I’ve told police that I was assaulted, and am in shock that this happened.
“I ran away after being punched – I ran to Harvey’s house nearby and have now done damage to my feet, which I previously injured. I can’t say any more.”
A man in his 30s was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive control.
He has since been released on bail until next month.
Meanwhile, Katie has apparently moved in with friends.
