Katie Price criticised for flaunting £1k puppy after 'not being able to pay court fine'

Some people have questioned her lavish lifestyle

Katie Price has been selling her old belongings to pay off her driving ban fine, but some critics have pointed out that she has been happily showing off her new £1k puppy.

Following her two court appearances this week, Katie shared an Instagram snap of her cuddling the German Shepherd pup.

She wrote about her new, long hair extensions in the pic but her followers were more distracted by the pricey pooch she was holding!

While some branded the photo "gorgeous", some questioned Kate's move considering her current financial predicament.

It's the second pedigree dog she has bought in three months.

One blasted: "Sell your 🐕 could pay for your fine, what a joke."

A second sarcastically added: "Oh to be bankrupt."

Another critic seemed to refer to when the 40-year-old sold her farm animals because she was broke.

They wrote: "Poor dog how long before u get rid of this one."

It comes as Katie told a court yesterday (9 January) that she couldn't pay the £1295 driving ban fine she was handed.

She has been given 14 days to come up with the money and has resorted to selling her underwear and even her old breasts implants to make some quick cash.

The star, who narrowly avoided bankruptcy last month, pleaded guilty for driving while disqualified last year. She was banned from the road in February for speeding.

The star also appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court this Monday (7 January) to plead not guilty to drink-driving, after she crashed her Range Rover after a night out on 10 October.

She will stand trial for the drink-driving offence next month.
