Katie Price wants Dwight Yorke to have relationship with Harvey

She claims it has been years since Harvey last saw his dad

Mum-of-five Katie Price plans to confront her footballing ex Dwight Yorke over being a part of their son Harvey’s life.

The former glamour model, 41, revealed on social media she intends to turn up at Yorke’s house unannounced to confront him on camera.

She claimed it has been years since the former Manchester United ace last met up with 17-year-old Harvey in her latest YouTube channel vid.

Dwight, 47, and Katie split in 2001 before Harvey - who has autism, Prader-Willi syndrome and is partially blind - was born.

"How long as it been?” Katie is seen asking a pal in the footage.

"Harvey was four when he last saw him."

I would love Dwight to come into contact with Harvey.

Katie continued: "I would love Dwight to come into contact with Harvey. How can you not want to know Harv?"

She previously claimed the Tobagonian sports star was "unable to accept" Harvey’s conditions and questioned whether Katie was "overfeeding" him.

The mum-of-five wrote in her 2016 memoir Reborn: "I’d explained Harvey’s condition to Dwight many times, but he refused to understand it and kept going on about him being fat.

"It’s sad that he is unable to accept Harvey for who he is and seems unable or unwilling to work within his limitations.

"On that occasion, I think Dwight wanted to blame someone for the fact that his son is disabled."

Last November Katie pleaded with Harvey’s estranged dad to make contact.

"It's never too late - the door is always open," she wrote on Instagram.

Earlier this summer Harvey went into residential care after his mum admitted struggling to care for him by herself.

"I don't want him to go, but the doctors and my mum say it is the best thing for him," she had previously said.

Katie later revealed Harvey is 'loving' living away - and "hated" returning home for the weekend.
