Sounds like she just wants a break

Katie Price has reportedly said goodbye to her kids for a week of partying in South East Asia with boyfriend Kris Boyson.

The former glamour model, 40, is believed to have left son Harvey in the care of her hairdresser, Louisa Roy.

A source told The Sun that Harvey enjoys staying with Louisa, who is a plus-sized influencer on social media and runs salon business LA Studio.

They told the paper: "Harvey loves it there. He still hasn't been placed into residential care so he's at school everyday and then back to Lou's in the afternoon."

Katie revealed last month that she plans to set up a residential care arrangement for the 16-year-old, because he's been acting up at home and sometimes scares his brothers and sisters.

Mum-of-five Katie's other children were also reportedly left behind as she jetted off for a luxury getaway in Thailand.

Junior, 13, and Princess, 11, are said to be staying with their dad, Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre.

Five-year-old Jett and four-year-old Bunny, meanwhile, are staying with their own dad Kieran Hayler.

Harvey loves it there. He still hasn't been placed into residential care so he's at school everyday and then back to Lou's in the afternoon.

ED! has reached out to Katie's reps for comment.

It follows the announcement that Katie plans to launch a new range of clothing for kids.

Next month, she will unveil a girls' range called Princess & Bunny and a boys' equivalent called Junior & Jett.

But the star came under fire for using her own brood as models, with some saying she should not be using her kids to make money.

Perhaps surprisingly, controversial presenter Piers Morgan isn't among Katie's detractors.

The Good Morning Britain host recently admitted having a "soft spot" for her because of how much she loves and cares for Harvey, who is blind, autistic and has a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi syndrome.

Taking to his column for the Mail On Sunday's Event magazine, Piers described witnessing Katie's mothering skills.

He wrote: "As she tried to give him his medicine, Harvey – who's also a very sweet, intelligent and funny boy – violently smashed his head back into a wall, shouted and aggressively brushed her away.

"Katie laughed it off, but as a parent of four kids, I found it genuinely shocking."

He continued: "And, what's more, she has to cope with this alone because Harvey's father, millionaire former Manchester United star Dwight Yorke, has had nothing to do with him."
