She’s al­ways been S the queen of con­tro­versy, but Jor­dan was mired in scan­dal last week af­ter be­ing in­ves­ti­gated for re­venge porn – just days af­ter she went to Par­lia­ment with her son Har­vey in a high-pro­file bid to ban on­line trolling.

Pals say the star is dev­as­tated that the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion could dis­tract from her anti-trolling cause, which she launched af­ter her son Har­vey, 15 – who is par­tially blind and suf­fers se­vere autism and Prader-willi syn­drome – was re­peat­edly mocked on­line.

Po­lice were alerted by her ex-hus­band Alex Reid, 42, who claims she showed an ex­plicit video of him to 40 mem­bers of a TV au­di­ence dur­ing an ad break at a record­ing of Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side on 9 Jan­uary. It is be­lieved the clip shows Alex per­form­ing a lewd act on a sex toy while in drag.

In a state­ment, Alex said he was “very up­set”, adding, “I am taking le­gal ac­tion against Katie Price over her ac­tions and I will not be com­ment­ing pub­licly any fur­ther.” A rep for Jor­dan has said she de­nies the ac­cu­sa­tions.

PUB­LIC SLATING

Jor­dan hinted at the ex­is­tence of po­ten­tially em­bar­rass­ing videos last year, say­ing, “Now, with Alex Reid, for ex­am­ple, the amount of sto­ries he’s done on me, but he for­gets what videos and pic­tures I have of him.” But while she ad­mit­ted to show­ing them to friends, she said she’d never make them pub­lic.

It’s not the first time Jor­dan has pub­licly slated Alex, whom she mar­ried in 2010 but sep­a­rated from af­ter 11 months to­gether. In 2012, she shock­ingly told a room full of jour­nal­ists, “I f***ed Alex up the a**e with a vodka bot­tle.”

A source says, “Katie’s usu­ally blasé about even the most se­ri­ous sit­u­a­tions and isn’t fazed by much, but she knows that all this neg­a­tive pub­lic­ity is re­ally bad. She’s scared about

be­ing seen as a hyp­ocrite af­ter launch­ing Har­vey’s pe­ti­tion and she told friends that she’s afraid it could ruin things for Har­vey’s Law and undo all her hard work.”

Over the years, cruel Tweets about Har­vey have in­cluded racial abuse and a lewd mocked up video. De­spite the vile com­ments, the star con­tin­ues to keep her son in the pub­lic eye, taking him on Loose Women and reg­u­larly fea­tur­ing him, along­side her other kids, on so­cial me­dia.

Re­act­ing to news of the porn in­ves­ti­ga­tion last week, trolls con­tin­ued to slam Jor­dan, say­ing, “A God aw­ful hyp­ocrite of the high­est or­der. When will she just dis­ap­pear?” While an­other said, “She goes on about her son’s on­line abuse, then abuses her ex-hus­band’s right to pri­vacy. She is very nasty with dou­ble stan­dards.” a third added, “Would be funny if this law comes in and she’s the first of­fender pros­e­cuted.”

PAN­ICK­ING

The source says, “Katie’s pan­ick­ing about the whole thing. She’s feel­ing hu­mil­i­ated by the back­lash and is scared it could de­stroy her new drive to be taken more se­ri­ously as a cam­paigner.”

In the same week, she faced more abuse af­ter her home was fea­tured on Through The Key­hole – with view­ers taking to Twit­ter to slam her “dirty” Sus­sex man­sion as a “dump” and ac­cuse her of liv­ing “like a pig”. As host Keith Lemon walked around the grounds, there was horse poo on the drive­way, and piles of clothes and laun­dry in one of the rooms.

De­spite in­sist­ing the house was in dis­ar­ray as it was two weeks away from be­ing ren­o­vated, pals say Jor­dan is se­cretly strug­gling to cope with run­ning a busy house­hold of five chil­dren.

She’s also bat­tled a hellish 12 months that saw her mum Amy di­ag­nosed with a ter­mi­nal lung con­di­tion and her se­rial cheat hus­band Kieran Hayler, 30, con­fess to an af­fair with their nanny Nikki Brown – which she de­nied. In De­cem­ber, Jor­dan ad­mit­ted she was in ther­apy and on an­tide­pres­sants.

The source re­veals, “Katie was hurt at the crit­i­cism and thinks it’s cruel that peo­ple have tried to shame her given she’d only just moved in. She’s a busy work­ing mum and it’s been hard to stay on top of ev­ery­thing. With her sched­ule and her mum’s health, Katie’s felt pulled in a mil­lion di­rec­tions and Kieran has been left to han­dle ev­ery­thing. She feels like she can’t cope with much more. Frankly, the state of the house is the last thing on her mind.”

SEN­TI­MEN­TAL

Last April, Jor­dan – who has 100 an­i­mals – raised eye­brows when she ad­mit­ted on Loose Women that she let her youngest, Jett, four, and Bunny, three, “wee and poo” in the garden. She added, “I live on a farm, so my kids will go out with one boot on, or in their pants.”

Af­ter the star was slammed for shar­ing a pic of Bunny cov­ered in mud last year, she hit back, “My kids are dirty, they’re feral, they’re happy and they en­joy life.”

Now friends say the star – also mum to Ju­nior, 12, and Princess, 10, with ex Peter An­dre – is a “hoarder” and can’t bear to part with any­thing sen­ti­men­tal.

The source adds, “Katie ad­mits she’s messy. She’s also a bit of a hoarder and doesn’t like to throw any­thing away, just in case. There’s mess ev­ery­where, but things like that just don’t bother her.”
