On today’s Loose Women Katie Price made a revelation that she in fact used to get paid more than her then husband Peter Andre for joint photoshoots.
As the ladies discussed the BBC gender pay gap that was exposed since some BBC presenters’ wages were revealed yesterday, they talked about their own experiences with getting paid more or less than male counterparts for the same jobs.
Katie said on Loose Women: “One rule I always learnt in this industry is never discuss your fee with anyone because it does cause arguments and stuff.
“I suppose, with me, I’ve learnt what my worth is. I don’t say yes to every job. Sometimes I’m like, ‘Kate, don’t be stubborn, because you might lose it’. And then I’m like, ‘Well, if I lose it, then I’m not worth it. Go for someone else’.
“But, like, even in the past with husbands like with Pete, even if we did an OK! shoot we used to have separate contracts. I used to get more than him. Because I think I know my worth. And if I wasn’t on the cover of it, I knew that the others wouldn’t be worth it on their own.”
Katie and Peter were married for four and a half years and had two children together, Princess, 10 and Junior, 12. Katie went on to have two more children in subsequent marriages and had son Harvey before she met Peter.
She is currently married to Kieran Hayler who famously cheated on her with her best friend, something Katie still brings up in the media from time to time. In her new TV programme Katie Price: My Crazy Life Kieran admitted to finding flirty texts on her phone between her and DJ Tom Zanetti.
Kieran said on Katie’s reality show: “She sent loads of text messages last year to Tom Zanetti describing how much she loved him. How much she wanted to change her name to his name when they got married and had kids. She hasn’t even changed her name to my name being married to me!”
Close friends of Tom Zanetti have alleged that he was ‘boasting’ about his relationship with Katie. Friends told The Sun: “He was boasting about it and telling everyone who wanted to listen about how close they were. No one seemed that interested in what he was saying but he kept going on about it. Apparently they are very close.”
But because of Kieran’s cheating past Katie said she doesn’t feel guilty about her flirty texts with Tom, as she said: “Do I feel bad? No, I don’t really. At the end of the day I didn’t do anything with him unlike Kieran who cheated on me. It was just flirty texts.”
