“I need to win back my fans”

She’s had a dif­fi­cult S cou­ple of months – with claims hus­band Kieran Hayler had cheated again, her mum’s ter­mi­nal lung dis­ease and a hu­mil­i­at­ing pub­lic spat with Love Is­land star Chris Hughes.

And last week, af­ter pre­vi­ously can­celling a num­ber of shows, Jor­dan sen­sa­tion­ally post­poned her one-woman tour due to “per­sonal cir­cum­stances”.

Fans were out­raged – with one post­ing on so­cial me­dia, “She’s lost so many fans through be­ing self­ish, re­ally un­pro­fes­sional to pull the plug.”

Jor­dan, aka Katie Price, was forced to can­cel re­cent shows in Manch­ester and London af­ter she re­port­edly re­ceived an email warn­ing her that un­less she paid £50,000 in cash, her dis­abled son Har­vey, 15, would be kid­napped and have his face “smashed in”.

Now sources say the ter­ri­fied star is too fear­ful to con­tinue with her tour – and has post­poned it un­til next spring.

LOS­ING FANS

A source says, “Katie is feel­ing re­ally low and she’s para­noid she’s los­ing her brand iden­tity and has let down her fans – but she felt she had no choice.”

Just days af­ter can­celling her tour, fans were left con­fused and out­raged when they saw via so­cial me­dia that the star, 39, had jet­ted off to Turkey. One fan said, “She can’t do her shows be­cause of threats to fam­ily and doesn’t want to leave them, yet can go to Turkey?”.

And pals say Jor­dan – who’s also mum to Ju­nior, 12, Princess, ten, Jett, four, and Bunny, three – in­sists she had to go to Turkey for an emer­gency teeth ap­point­ment and left her chil­dren well-pro­tected, but she’s now wor­ried about the re­cent back­lash she’s been re­ceiv­ing.

The source says, “Katie had a lot of pain in her back mo­lars and had no choice but to get treat­ment. She left the kids with Kieran and has brought in world­class se­cu­rity, some of whom have worked for the roy­als. She feels fans are start­ing to turn on her no mat­ter what she does.”

But the source adds that Jor­dan is de­ter­mined to turn all this neg­a­tive press around.

A pal adds, “Katie is now plan­ning on re­brand­ing her­self. She’s wor­ried she’s be­com­ing a bit of a joke and wants to re­new her fan base by es­tab­lish­ing her­self as a proper TV pre­sen­ter.”
