Katie Price 'splashes £1000 on another puppy' following bankruptcy scare

Money woes won't stop the animal lover

She narrowly avoided bankruptcy last month but Katie Price has apparently spent four figures on a new German Shepherd puppy as a gift to herself.

The 40-year-old, who also keeps horses, is said to be missing the company of her pets after she had to sell some to make ends meet.

It comes after she bought a dog of the same breed in October and called it Blue.

She was forced to sell off quite a few off her animals last year but thinks the dogs are positive impact on her life.

A source told The Sun: “It’s no secret that Katie is a huge animal lover – and just can’t get enough of German Shepherds.

“Her previous dog was run over and killed by a takeaway driver, and after getting one last year she couldn’t resist another adorable pup.

But Katie's indulgent splurge comes after she had to borrow money from a friend to avoid being declared bankrupt in December.

The mum-of-five, who was once worth £45 million, faced financial woes after not paying a £22k tax bill.

But Katie has declared she is confident she will get through her money problems and come out fighting.

She said on her reality show, My Crazy Life: "I had my court today and guess what I am not going bankrupt. So I am starting a new year, new beginnings, no bankruptcy."

She tweeted: "Honestly another complete utterly untrue story nobody is moving in with me and no wedding plans with anybody next year".
