Four years on from their divorce, Alex Reid and Katie Price are still battling it out in the headlines. And it’s all down to the third party in their 11-month marriage – Alex’s drag alter ego, Roxanne.

Alex had previously claimed that Katie outed his cross-dressing in a shameless attempt to make money.

Now his mounting debt – over £400,000 in loans and legal fees – has the former cage fighter back in the ring to recover his pride, as well as some cash.


The 40 year old has admitted he’s “petrified” but hasn’t “got a pot to p*ss in” – thanks in most part to the money he lavished on luxury holidays and handbags for Katie.

Alex told the Mirror: “I think Katie has tried to destroy me to be honest. I think she just got bored with me and saw me as a way of keeping her media profile up by being controversial.”


The former glamour model has shared some gory details about their sex life we still haven’t recovered from, and recently declared on Loose Women: “If he does end up being a transgender, it wouldn’t surprise me.”

Alex hit back saying: “I want to put the record straight. I am heterosexual, though I don’t deny I’ve experimented. But I am not having a sex change.

"Roxanne was fun and such a small part of my life. It has all been blown out of proportion to make me look like somebody I am not and it has hurt a lot – emotionally and financially.”


Alex makes his mixed martial arts comeback on 16 July at London’s O2 Arena.
