Former model Katie Price has reportedly called in her lawyers to discuss divorce from cage-fighter husband Alex Reid.
"Kate is being quite clever and is keeping Alex hanging on while she works out what to do," dailystar.co.uk quoted a friend as saying.
"That means he has stayed in the house and she knows exactly what he's up to. She has been holding him to ransom as he tries to patch things up.
"Kate has told pals that Alex can never do a kiss-and-tell because she knows all the dirty secrets from his past," the friend added.
The 32-year-old beauty had recently confirmed their marriage is going through a rough patch and they have gone on a holiday to an island in the Indian Ocean to work through their problems.
