‘I EARNED MORE THAN PETE’
It’s not just Kieran that Katie took a swipe at last week, with the former glamour model claiming she’s ‘more Pricey’ than her exhusband, Peter Andre.
In the wake of the BBC’s gender pay-gap scandal, Katie told her fellow panel members on Loose Women that she was worth more than the Mysterious Girl singer and was even paid more when they were doing the same job.
The 39-year-old said, ‘One rule I learned in this industry is, never discuss your fee with anyone, because it does cause arguments. ‘Even in the past, even if we did a shoot, we used to have separate contacts.
‘I used to get more [money] than him, as I know my worth. I knew if I wasn’t on the cover, the others wouldn’t be worth it on their own.’
And Katie, who’s amassed a fortune of around £40 million, doesn’t see a reason why a woman should be earning less than her male counterpart.
‘I think women are just as powerful as men – I don’t get it, myself,’ she added, ‘If women want to earn more than men, they should grow a pair of balls.’
Because I’m worth it – Pricey versus Pete
