Katie took to her Twitter page last week, just days after confirming she was six months pregnant with her fifth child, to reveal that she was divorcing the builder and occasional stripper, claiming he’d been embroiled in what she described as a “full blown sexual affair” with her close friend of almost 20 years.
Chantelle, who has a child with Katie’s second husband Alex Reid, has now sympathised with the former glamour model in an interview.
Chantelle went on to say that she admired the fact that Katie broke the news on her Twitter page, sharing details of her husband’s affair with one of her best friends.
Meanwhile, anyone hoping to hear Katie’s side of the story in full could be in for a long wait, as she’s admitted that at the moment things are “too raw” to talk about.
Writing in Now magazine, in place of the column she usually writes, Katie said: “I want to thank readers for all your messages of support. It’s been overwhelming.
“The past week has been so difficult and at this time it’s all too raw to talk about. I need some time and space.”
