Katie Price was spot­ted film­ing out­side of re­hab – that’s why you go, right?

Fans turn on her as she’s spot­ted film­ing scenes out­side The Pri­ory

Heat (UK) - - Employee Of The Week -

She fi­nally seemed to be deal­ing with her in­ner de­mons. But in the short time Katie Price has spent at re­hab, the for­mer glam­our model has re­peat­edly hit the head­lines for her de­struc­tive be­hav­iour and some­what lax at­ti­tude to her re­cov­ery. To re­cap: dur­ing her 28-day treat­ment at The Pri­ory, she’s been ar­rested for sus­pected drink-driv­ing, seen out par­ty­ing, and skipped her month­long pro­gramme for days at a time – de­spite read­mit­ting her­self as a full-time in-pa­tient. Now, af­ter Katie was pic­tured film­ing scenes for her re­al­ity show My Crazy Life just out­side of the fa­cil­ity, fans are fu­ri­ous, claim­ing that not only is she mak­ing a “mock­ery” of her treat­ment, she’s also show­ing com­plete dis­re­gard for other vul­ner­a­ble pa­tients on the premises.

Last week, the mum of five turned up with a cam­era crew out­side The Pri­ory’s main en­trance, af­ter be­ing “de­nied ac­cess” to film within the grounds. She was soon joined by her mum Amy, 64, who hugged her for the cam­eras (above). But de­spite fans ini­tially sup­port­ing the star, she’s now fac­ing a back­lash for her “shame­less” PR stunts. One com­mented, “She’s mak­ing a mock­ery of those at­tempt­ing to face their de­mons, in what they be­lieve is a place of peace, pri­vacy and dis­cre­tion.” An­other railed, “She’s shame­less and self-serv­ing – there are peo­ple in that build­ing work­ing hard to get healthy, but for her, it’s just a photo op.”

Over the past few months, the 40 year old has re­peat­edly hit rock bot­tom. Af­ter be­ing filmed rap­ping, “I love coke,” she checked her­self into The Pri­ory for PTSD. While there as a day pa­tient, she was ar­rested for sus­pected drink-driv­ing af­ter crash­ing her car fol­low­ing a night out at on/off boyfriend Kris Boyson’s birth­day party – prompt­ing her to check in as an in-pa­tient. But 24 hours later, she left the fa­cil­ity again. At the same time, she’s been plagued by sto­ries that she’s head­ing for bank­ruptcy and fears los­ing cus­tody of her chil­dren. At present, her first hus­band Peter An­dre is look­ing af­ter their chil­dren Ju­nior, 13, and Princess, 11, while five-year-old Jett and Bunny, four, are with their dad Kieran Hayler. Her el­dest son, Har­vey, 16, is mainly liv­ing with her mum. There were also re­ports that she had been hook­ing up with her ex, Alex Ad­der­son, at a ho­tel in cen­tral Lon­don.

As these new im­ages went pub­lic, fans ques­tioned whether the star has any real in­ten­tion of clean­ing up her act. As one com­menter put it, “Now we know for sure that it was all a pub­lic­ity stunt. What one per­son will do for fame and money goes be­yond rea­son.” Let’s hope she gets the help she needs. n

“Can we do an­other take?”
