Katie Price made a public apology to her estranged husband Peter Andre over cheating claims and also paid an undisclosed amount to him as libel damages, thus settling the slander lawsuit.
Price had also claimed that Andre was not genuine in his feelings for her son Harvey.
Andre was claiming aggravated damages on the basis his ex-wife knowingly lied when she made her comments in Heat magazine, the Daily Mail reported.
In the 2009 interview, the 33-year-old model had alleged that Andre, 38, did not see Harvey as often as he claimed but only about twice a fortnight.
The accusations came after Price was asked about Andre’s latest single Unconditional, said to be about his love for nine-year-old Harvey.
Peter will apparently be putting the money into a trust fund for Harvey.
Andre’s solicitor Mike Brookes said that his client launched the proceedings, as ‘his relationship with his children and his reputation are important to him.’
“Ms Price accepts that the feelings for Harvey which Mr Andre expressed in the song were genuine and he was not being hypocritical,” he said
The Mysterious Girl singer also claimed damages for libel over comments made by Price on The Graham Norton Show in October 2009, in which she accused him of having an affair with his manager Clare Powell.
Although the comments were not broadcast to the general public but they were overheard by the live audience, yet Mr Brookes said she now ‘withdraws her claim unreservedly.’
Price’s solicitor Keith Ashby asserted that she was happy to confirm ‘that Mr Andre has been a good father to Harvey and has demonstrated his love for him on many occasions.’
The couple, who married in 2005 and divorced in October 2009, have two children of their own Junior, six, and three-year-old Princess while Harvey is the son of former fling footballer Dwight Yorke.
