KATIE PRICE, the glamour model and reality television star, is set to announce that she is to divorce from cage-fighter husband Alex Reid, according to reports. The UK's Sun newspaper suggests that Price, formerly known as JORDAN, will confirm the marriage split as early as this afternoon (11th January 2011).
Recent speculation had suggested that the couple's relationship has been in trouble for several weeks, and a written statement confirming the split is already thought to have been handed to publicists. A source said, "The announcement is a formality. The truth is the marriage has been dead for months. They just never got on once the spotlight disappeared and they were left with the dull reality of their relationship. They just rushed into it hoping for the best and it has all gone pear-shaped. Alex is more depressed about it than she is. She was his meal ticket, and he knows it". The couple married in Las Vegas in 2010 having met just six months previous and went on to document their relationship in a successful ITV reality show.
After rumours arose last week concerning a possible divorce, 32-year-old Price took to her Twitter page and told followers, "To answer my fans questions news of the world did a accurate story sunday about our marriage in crises ..always look on bright side xx"
