Faking it? Katie Price’s rage: ‘Don’t call me a liar’

She's in a wheelchair, but she's not taking the accusations sitting down

If anyone deserves the title “Calamity Jane”, it’s Katie Price. After all, her average week reads like the most dramatic soap opera: OTT break-ups and make-ups, house fires, bankruptcy, rehab, pet tragedies and family illness. So, when she flew to Turkey last month and came back with two broken feet and ankles – telling fans she’d have to learn to walk again and could potentially face up to two years in a wheelchair – some people were dubious.

In fact, some accused her of making up any sort of injury altogether and “attention-seeking”, while others guessed that she’d actually had bunion surgery. And a series of glam photos and videos of her moving around with knee pads and a mobility scooter did nothing to ease suspicion.

One follower said, “It’s truly amazing that she’s able to wiggle her toes about if her feet are broken and in so much pain,” while another weighed in, “I don’t believe it. I do, however, believe that she had her bunions done on both feet.” A third added, “I predict a future headline: ‘Katie defies her doctors and all the odds to be walking again a few weeks after her surgery.’ No way will she last longer than that.”

But Katie didn’t take the allegations, er, sitting down. Instead, the former glamour model – who recently had a six-hour operation to fix her injuries – posted a video in which she blasted any claims that she was lying, and took serious offence at the mention of bunions.

All new mums should also remember that dogs can easily get jealous of new babies."But Peaches hit back.

Poor Katie. She went into the Celebrity Big Brother house to make friends – and it looked like she did.

I mean, God bless her, she can't really sing, can she? But I've said to her that I'll get her in the studio and make it sound good."Unsurprisingly, Katie was NOT impressed with his catty comments. She said: "I did a favour for @kavana_official by appearing in his music video as a favour when he asked by NEVER discussed going a duet with his and this is something that will NEVER happen as infact I'm in the studio recording my own tracks solo [sic]."

Katie Price VS Chris Hughes

We will NEVER forget Katie Price and Love Island star Chris Hughes' 2017 drama. It all began after Katie denied sending Chris any flirty messages after he said he was ignoring her.Things took a turn for the worse when Chris posted text messages she had sent him but it wasn't long before she hinted she has over 50 screenshots of private messages he sent her.Just when we thought things couldn't get any more juicier The Sun then verified that Chris HAD sent the mum-of-five private messages (even though he originally denied ever doing so). Pricey then went one step further and flashed one of those secret messages.Eek!

“People don’t think I have broken my feet and ankles, but why do I have to justify it? Why would I lie and ask for sympathy? That is wrong,” said the 42 year old, who got the injuries after leaping over a wall at a water park in Turkey. “They think I have bunions, but I normally have the most perfect feet. They’re the best thing about me. Everyone knows I don’t lie about things because everything gets proven. Why do I need to get sympathy? Why do I need to pretend to break my feet? That’s aggro and that’s sick.”

Katie also hit back at followers who questioned why she was still on the move – and still getting glammed-up – when she should be resting her feet. “I had knee pads on and I was shuffling around to get in the car,” she said. “Some people said, ‘If she had broken her feet, she wouldn’t be able to do that.’ The fact is: yes, I have and yes, I can. Why? Because I’m not going to sit here moaning, ringing a bell, saying, ‘Can someone help me?’ Life goes on, I’ve broken my feet, deal with it. That’s exactly what I’m doing. I’m not faking it and I don’t need to fake it.”

Meanwhile, in the never-ending telenovela that is Katie Price’s life, the outrage got even shriller last week, after she posted a photo of herself and her six-year-old daughter Bunny caked in make-up. One follower commented, “OMG this is sick,” while another added, “So wrong to put a child in full make-up where anyone can see it! Please let her be a child.” A third simply stated, “Wrong parenting.” But Katie defended the snap, saying Bunny loved wearing make-up.

Tune in next week for the next instalment of Katie’s real-life soap opera.
