After a horrible year, Katie Price is said to be turning to ex-husband Peter Andre for a shoulder to cry on.
Katie’s been struggling after her beloved mum was diagnosed with an incurable lung condition, as well as coping with her own marriage troubles after husband Kieran Hayler cheated on her early last year.
And now, according to reports in Closer magazine, she’s turning to the only person she thinks understands how she is feeling – her ex-husband.
Peter lost his brother Andrew to cancer in 2012, and because of that Katie is said to think he understands the trauma of losing a loved one – better than her current husband Kieran does.
She and Peter married in 2005 but called time on their marriage four years later.
They have an up and down relationship but Katie has turned to him now because she is not sure who she can trust.
Katie has trouble trusting any of her inner circle as she fears being used. She’s become so needy, she calls Pete for support and gets upset when he can’t talk because of work or family commitments.
“Pete knows her mum well and knows what it’s like to lose a family member,” a source told Closer.
“Katie is so lonely and feels only Pete can help her. He knows what to say during such a tough time.
“Despite their history, he knows this is a horrific time for her. He does care and wants to try to help her through it.”
Peter has two children with Katie, as well as two with wife Emily MacDonagh, so he has his hands full.
But if rumours are to be believed, Katie could soon be keeping busy herself. She’s still tipped to be heading into the all-female Celebrity Big Brother house, despite denying the claims on social media.
