Katie Price’s terminally ill mum Amy reportedly pleaded with her daughter to enter rehab to sort her life out.
It was recently revealed that mum-of-five Katie, 40, will spend four weeks being treated at the Priory for post-traumatic stress disorder.
According to The Sun, a source claimed Amy – who has a terminal lung condition, said it was her “dying wish” for Katie to get help for her personal issues.
The insider said: “Amy and Katie are very close and Katie’s always asking her if there’s something she wants to do before she gets too unwell.
“Amy basically said it was her dying wish for Katie to sort her life out and get help.
“There’s no way she could refuse. The decision was made between Katie, her management and her family that she would go to The Priory.”
ED! has contacted a representative for Katie for comment.
Katie’s mum Amy confirmed her daughter would be entering rehab over the weekend.
Amy told The Sun that although Katie can be her “own worst enemy”, she’s also been judged for years and subjected to “endless attacks” over everything she does.
Amy said: “She is constantly judged on her kids, her home, work, financial situation, the way she looks, how she dresses and what she does.
“No person can take this kind of pressure and not succumb to it.”
Katie’s had a difficult year with her beloved mum Amy being diagnosed with a terminal lung condition, her marriage to third husband Kieran Hayler breaking down, and a romance with boyfriend Kris Boyson recently ending.
She’s also faced headlines about her financial situation, the state of her mansion and allegations of wild partying, including a video clip filmed during a hen do in Majorca showing her appearing to rap “I love coke”.
Amy was diagnosed with idopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a type of lung disease which gradually makes it difficult to breathe, last year.
Life expectancy following diagnosis is usually less than five years but treatment can slow progression.
Back in July, Katie appeared on Loose Women and spoke about her mum’s health.
She said: “She has deteriorated, I can hear it in her breathing. She’s recovering well [from an operation she had to undergo].
“Do you know what, we’re all upbeat. We’re upbeat with my mum.”
