Katie regrets marrying Alex Reid, calls him ‘fame-obsessed’January 16th, 2011 - 2:31 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 16 (IANS) Former model and reality TV star Katie Price has split from husband Alex Reid whom she labels as “fame-obsessed” and says she regrets marrying him.The mother-of-three is said to have told friends the 11-month marriage is definitely over, adding that Alex had changed from an “ordinary man” into a “fame-hungry sponger”, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Katie, 32, is quoted by the News of the World as saying to a friend: “I thought Alex was an easy-going athlete who had no interest in showbiz, fame or wanting a TV career like Pete (ex-husband Peter Andre). He was just the opposite of all that, just an ordinary bloke.
“I loved the fact he wasn’t in my world. But as soon as he got to my world, he wanted to be in it himself. He wanted to become a TV personality like me, a magazine columnist like me and advertise clothes like me. I hated that.”
Alex, 35, has now moved out of their home while the two apparently prepare to release a statement detailing their separation. A spokesperson for Katie confirmed saying, “Katie has asked Alex to leave the family home so they both have some space and hopes he respects that.”
The newspaper also claimed Katie told friends she “regretted” ever marrying cage-fighter Alex, adding: “I look back and regret that marriage with all my heart. I convinced myself I was in love but looking back I probably wasn’t. It was a mistake. I was infatuated with the idea of him, but I didn’t actually get to know him properly.”
However, Katie’s decision is said to have left Alex, 35, heartbroken and depressed, with friends concerned about his well-being.
