Peter Andre breaks social media silence after ex-wife Katie Price’s arrest

He promoted his latest show

Peter Andre took to social media to promote the latest show of his tour hours after news broke that his ex-wife Katie Price had been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.

Katie was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning after her pink Range Rover was found with signs of damage while stopped on a street in South East London.

The Mysterious girl singer, who is touring the UK to celebrate 25 years in the music industry, took to Instagram on Thursday to tell fans he was on his way to Wembley Stadium to perform.

It was claimed Katie had earlier attended her ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson’s birthday party.

According to The Sun, Metropolitan Police confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that Katie was released under investigation shortly after Kris was pictured at Plumstead Station in South London.

A Met Police spokesman had previously said: “At approximately 2am British Transport Police officers came across a car showing signs of damage stationary at the roadside in Shooters Hill Road, Woolwich.

“A 40-year-old woman who was inside the car was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. She was taken to a south London police station where she remains.”

ED! has contacted representatives for Katie for comment.

Katie is currently seeking treatment in rehab for post-traumatic stress disorder.

She sought help after a difficult year that included mum Amy being diagnosed with a terminal lung condition, her marriage to third husband Kieran breaking down, and a romance with boyfriend Kris ending.

Last month, Peter opened up about trying to protect his children from news stories and the internet.

During an appearance on Lorraine, the star said he works hard to make sure Junior and Princess avoid seeing headlines about their mum, Katie.

Lorraine asked Peter: “There’s been loads of headlines, there always is, about their mum. How do you protect them from that?”

He replied: “Obviously when it comes to kids and newspapers and the internet, I try my best to avoid them. Because there’s lots of stories about lots of different things.

“It’s just trying to get them to concentrate on other things because I think the internet is a bit of a scary place in general.

“You find good news and you can find bad news all in the same hour.”
