Leandro blasts Kate Price: ‘Text that X Factor guy again and I’m off!’
Tuesday 23 October 2012
After battling to save their shaky engagement for weeks, insiders say Jordan has been embroiled in a bust-up with her fiancé Leandro Penna after she was caught texting another man.
Last week, it was claimed Jordan, 34 – also known as Katie Price – had been texting 18-year-old X Factor finalist Dan Ferrari-Lane from boyband District3 flirty messages while staying in the contestants’ hotel in London, on a visit to see her close pal Rylan Clark.
One of the messages reportedly said: “I must say, your [sic] looking good this morning xx,” while, in another, it’s alleged she said she had no plans to tell anyone she was texting him.
But while she’s claiming it was just fun, apparently Leandro hit the roof when he heard about the messages. Pals say: “He started shouting in Spanish, swearing at her, then he said: ‘If you text him again, it’s over!’ He told her he doesn’t think he can trust her any more.”
But insiders say Jordan denied anything had happened, saying: “I’m not a cradle snatcher!”
Earlier this month, Jordan – who is mum to Harvey, 10, with footballer Dwight Yorke, and Junior, seven, and Princess, five, with her first husband Peter Andre – first met Dan at London’s Corinthia Hotel, where the X Factor contestants were staying. They then bumped into each other again after separate appearances on ITV1’s Daybreak.
Then, last week, Jordan, who was back at the Corinthia, apparently invited Dan to watch a film with her and pal Rylan, 23. A source says: “Dan was flattered and a bit star-struck.”
Now insiders claim Jordan continued to message Dan after her blazing row with Leandro, 26, and has told pals her romance with Leandro – who she’s been with since February 2011 – “bores” her.
A source claims: “Katie wants to be out socialising again. She likes getting attention from men. Despite the trouble it caused with Leo, she’s still texting Dan and telling pals it’s just a bit of “harmless fun.”
A spokesman for Jordan says: “Katie met various X Factor contestants last week and texted them to wish them good luck.”
It’s not the first time that Jordan has been linked to a young singer. In 2002, Pop Idol star Gareth Gates, then 17, admitted he’d had a three-month affair with Jordan.
But in an effort to patch things up with Leandro, insiders reveal she’s taking him to Alton Towers theme park in Staffordshire. A source says: “She’s hoping a day out at Alton Towers will calm the waters. It’s a bit odd as one day she’s saying she’s bored of him, the next day she wants to keep him happy.”
Meanwhile, sources say Jordan – who is said to have spent £100K on surgery, including lipo and five boob jobs and is recently thought to have had dermal fillers around her mouth – is panicking about her looks.
A source says: “Katie’s saying she’s paranoid she’s done irreparable damage to her face as she can’t move half of it, but she won’t stop having work done. She seems addicted to surgery.”
