In a des­per­ate bid to free her­self from her fi­nan­cial woes, Jor­dan is turn­ing to past loves to bail her out

Closer (UK) - - News - By Daisy Mclure

She reached out S to her ex Dwight Yorke ear­lier this month in an emo­tional post on In­sta­gram about their dis­abled son Har­vey – say­ing “it’s never too late” to be in his life af­ter years of es­trange­ment.

The post was fol­lowed by re­ports that Jor­dan – real name Katie Price – is de­mand­ing £500,000 in child sup­port from the ex-foot­baller for their 16-year-old son amid her fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties.


The mum-of-five, 40, was given a month-long ex­ten­sion when she avoided bank­ruptcy for the sec­ond time on 30 Oc­to­ber – and friends say she’s re­sorted to con­tact­ing her exes in a des­per­ate bid to save her­self be­fore the dead­line strikes.

A source says, “Katie knows time is run­ning out, so she’s try­ing to think of any way she can drum up the last bits of cash. Har­vey and the chil­dren are her world and it’s frus­trated her for years that Dwight has had such lit­tle con­tact with their son. She’d love them to have a fa­ther/ son re­la­tion­ship, but the post on so­cial me­dia about Dwight was also a bit of a guilt tac­tic to get him to cough up some money. She’s been go­ing through all her for­mer flames one by one and in­sists, if she can get money from each of them by team­ing up on busi­ness projects, she’ll have enough to stave off bank­ruptcy.”

In­sid­ers tell Closer how the re­al­ity star has reached out to a string of exes, in­clud­ing rugby star Danny Cipri­ani and even singer Gareth Gates, who fa­mously lost his vir­gin­ity to her when he was just 17.

And pals say Jor­dan – who is in an on/off re­la­tion­ship with per­sonal trainer Kris Boyson – is con­sid­er­ing a busi­ness ven­ture with her ex and close friend Dane Bow­ers, whom she once made a sex tape with and also de­scribed as “the love of my life” fol­low­ing their split in 2000.


The source says, “Katie’s seen how well Dane’s do­ing with his DJ ca­reer – trav­el­ling all over the world to lux­u­ri­ous lo­ca­tions – and she’s con­vinced she can cash-in on his suc­cess and make the most of their no­to­ri­ety.

“She’s sug­gested she joins him for his sets abroad, which she says will bring big­ger crowds. But Dane said, while he’ll sup­port her how­ever he can, he doesn’t think it would be a good idea.

“She con­tacted Danny and Gareth too in an at­tempt to open some more doors, but her mes­sages have been ig­nored and pals have warned they come across as bla­tant des­per­a­tion.”

The cash-strapped star was pic­tured shop­ping with Kris, 30, re­cently – and pals say he’s un­aware of her lat­est plan and is at­tempt­ing to help her get her roller-coaster life back on track.

The source adds, “Kris has been the one con­stant in her life the past few months and he’s vowed to stand by her as long as she’ll let him – which friends have urged her to cling on to be­fore she risks los­ing ev­ery­thing. But they’re so up and down that she’s keep­ing all her op­tions open.”
