Katie Price feels like “public enemy number one” since splitting from Peter Andre.
The former glamour model is reportedly distraught people are siding with her estranged husband as he prepares to launch divorce proceedings against her today.
A source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Katie feels like public enemy number one. She told one friend, ‘Everyone hates me, the world is against me.’ ”
Pete, 36, is believed to be refusing to meet Katie in person, but is expected to see lawyers today to sign papers which will begin proceedings to end their marriage. He will also launch a bid to retain access to the children they raise, three-year-old son Junior, 23-month-old Princess Tiaamii and stepson Harvey, six.
Another source added: “Peter seems set on ending the marriage and she’s got to be prepared to deal with that and protect her interests.”"
Meanwhile, after a day of horse riding yesterday Katie, 31, met with married dressage coach Andrew Gould alone for three hours at her mansion in Surrey, Southern England. Both parties insist they are just friends.
At the same time, Peter – who says he’s lost a 14lb since the split - was reunited with Harvey for the first time in over a week.
He told Britain’s New! magazine: “I hadn’t seen the kids for over a week and it was hell. I missed them so much it actually made me ache inside. “I spoke to them every day on the phone, but it’s not the same as seeing them in person and giving them hugs and kisses. I couldn’t wait to get hold of them and savour every minute.”
Peter also spent time with Junior and Princess over the weekend.
