Katie Price has reportedly split from her fiancé, car salesman Carl Woods, just 11 months after their engagement.
The couple – who were planning to marry this year and had been trying to have a baby – called it quits after “difficult months and ongoing court cases,” according to sources close to the couple.
“Katie and Carl have decided to split up,” said one. “It’s been a difficult few months and their ongoing court cases have only added stress to the situation.
“It really seems to be over for now and they’re both very sad about it. But of course nobody would be surprised if they got back together.”
The split comes just days after Carl appeared in court accused of using threatening, abusive or abusive words or behavior during an argument with Katie.
He arrived at Colchester Magistrates’ Court holding hands with Katie, but later shared a cryptic post saying, “This is what loyalty looks like,” alongside a picture of himself and his dog.
If found guilty, he faces a maximum of six months in prison.
Katie was also recently accused of molesting Michelle Penticost, her ex-husband Kieran Hayler’s fiancee

There were concerns about their relationship after all pictures of Katie disappeared from Carl’s Instagram account.
She later appeared on Instagram without her huge diamond ring.
This is despite the fact that the seemingly smitten couple had been enjoying a romantic getaway to Southeast Asia.
There were rumors that Katie was pregnant when Carl was seen tenderly rubbing her tummy as they relaxed by the swimming pool at their complex.
Katie is already a mother to Harvey, 19, with former footballer Dwight Yorke, Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre, and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, with third husband Kieran Hayler.
Following her recent stint in rehab, Katie revealed plans to increase her brood and said she wants a big family with the Essex car salesman.
She explained in a statement to fans: “I’ve found the strength to turn my life around.
“With my weekly therapy and focusing on my future with Carl Woods and getting married.
“And having babies and making a commitment to being a woman in power again.”
Speaking early last year, she said all she wanted for 2021 was a husband and baby with Carl, who appeared on ITV’s Love Island in 2016.
“I’m not getting any younger … I look younger as I age, but you know what I mean,” she said.
“It all happened very quickly, but I know Carl is the right man for me. He’s the one and I couldn’t be happier – look at me!”
It follows reports that her ex-husband, Kieran Hayler, has warned their two children that she faces jail time for molestation.
Katie was recently accused of molesting Kieran’s fiancee Michelle Penticost and will appear in court when she returns home from Thailand.
Katie was arrested in January on suspicion of breaching her restraining order after allegedly texting Michelle.
The star is barred from contacting Kieran’s partner by a five-year restraining order after she verbally abused her in a schoolyard.
