A man has been arrested and charged after attempting to blackmail Katie Price with stolen sexual photographs featuring the model and one of her ex lovers.
Katie took to Twitter to confirm that an arrest had been made and also took the opportunity to state that she 'wasn't worried' about any old explicit snaps going public.
Somebody has been arrested and charged about blackmailing to use these stolen pictures so a step closer to who stole them— Katie Price (@MissKatiePrice) September 18, 2013
For the record im NOT worried about any sex pictures and it's NOT affecting my relationship, I'm sure ...... would be worried— Katie Price (@MissKatiePrice) September 18, 2013
Her representative said: “Katie has been helping police after a third party was blackmailed.
"An individual has now been arrested and charged, so she won’t comment further.”
Police confirmed that Desmond Fraser, 20, from Birkenhead, Wirral, has been charged with blackmail. He is to appear at Basingstoke magistrates court on 1 October.
Earlier this week, a source told Closer: “Katie’s a mum and doesn’t want a thing like the sex tape ordeal happening again.”
