FORMER glamor model Katie Price has been told she is in ‘grave danger’ of going to jail after her court appearance this morning.
Price is facing trial at Crown Court after he denied breaching a restraining order against his ex-husband’s fiancée over a post in which she accused the couple of having an affair.
The 43-year-old former glamor model reportedly messaged Kieran Hayler on January 21 this year in which she called her new partner Michelle Penticost a “f***ing c***ing” and a “gutter slag”.
Price, who was known professionally as Jordan, was banned from contacting Penticost either directly or indirectly in June 2019, under a five-year restraining order.
She was fined hundreds of pounds for hurling a crude ‘abuse tirade’ at him during an argument in a schoolyard.
Price, wearing white trainers, a green tracksuit and a black vest, appeared at Crawley Magistrates’ Court this morning.
She was supported by her reality TV star fiancé Carl Woods, 33, who was seated in the public gallery.
The court heard that her message to Hayler may have been triggered by an Instagram post from Penticost, which she said was aimed at Price.
Price’s message read: ‘Tell your goddamn shit girlfriend don’t start with me.
“She has a restraining order so shouldn’t try to upset me because she’s in breach and I’m sure she doesn’t want people to know she was having an affair with you behind my back. That gutter slag .
Price, who lives in Horsham, stood in the dock to confirm her name, address and date of birth, before pleading not guilty to the sole charge, which can be tried in the magistrates’ court or the Crown Court.
Defending Joe Harrington said: “The issues relate to his mental health and the triggers that led to sending that message.”
When asked where she wanted the trial to be heard, Price replied, “Crown Court please.”
District Judge Amanda Kelly said the offense carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and warned Price: “You are in very grave danger of going to jail.”
She said: “This is a very serious allegation in which it is alleged that you used indirectly vile and mean language towards Ms Penticost, a person whom you were prohibited from contacting directly or indirectly by order prohibition.”
The judge granted Price bail ahead of a plea and pre-trial hearing on May 25 at Lewes Crown Court on the condition that she not contact Ms Penticost directly or indirectly except to hand over children.
“It seems to me, Mrs. Price, that all the children caught up in your past and present relationships need their adults to behave like adults,” Judge said. “Stop exposing them to very public bickering.”
