Katie Price Hits Back At 'Sick People' Criticising Eldest Son Harvey's Weight And Speech Problems

Katie Price has responded to the "sick people" who have criticised her son Harvey for being overweight and having speech problems.

Price, who is mum to five children - Harvey, 12, Junior, 10, Princess, eight, Jett, two, and Bunny, one, - took to Instagram to hit back at the people sending her criticism by uploading two photos of forms - one from Great Ormond Street Hospital - listing the conditions Harvey has officially been diagnosed as having.

"People keep picking on Harvey and about his weight and speech give him a break jeez," she wrote on Instagram.

"So you know this is Diagnoses [sic] so if you sick people still want to pick on him then you need mental help yourselves."


On the second photo [below] Price added: "And here is the rest of Harvey's diagnoses so leave my son alone."

Overall, the two photos listed 15 "diagnoses", including autism, ADHD, Prada-Willi syndrome and OCD.

Price's fans were quick to respond in support of the former glamour model, telling her to ignore the trolls.

One person wrote: "You should not have to justify to anyone about Harvey, they're narrow-minded."

Another commented: "If people wish to be ignorant and pick on a young boy then shame on them!"


Price has previously spoken about her 12-year-old son having Prader–Willi syndrome (PWS).

The rare disorder is characterised by learning difficulties, growth abnormalities and obsessive eating, and is presented as a group of disabilities that "occur together".

Price spoke about the difficulties of raising a child with PWS on ITV's This Morning earlier this month.

She said: "Sometimes [Harvey] wants to pick up Bunny and give her a kiss and he wants us to say 'isn't that sweet'.

"Really I am thinking, 'Oh my God, is he going to launch her?' Because you don't know what he is going to do. You have to watch him with everything."
