KATIE Price spent the night in a police cell after she sent a vile text to ex-husband Kieran Hayler about his fiancée.
The star, 43, could face jail after being accused of violating a court order banning her from communicating with Michelle Penticost, 39, “directly or indirectly”.
The police arrested Price at home at 1 a.m. yesterday and took her to nick Worthing, West Sussex.
Price could face prison for sending an evil text message to ex-husband Kieran Hayler – targeting his fiancée.
The former glamor model, 43, was released from prison last month following a drunk driving incident.
She is accused of violating a court order that prohibits her from communicating with Michelle Penticost “directly or indirectly”.
Michelle contacted Sussex Police on Friday to complain that Katie – the mother of Kieran’s two children – had sent him a degree of abuse aimed at her.
Sources close to the matter said the inscription branded Michelle as “c *** ing we piece of s ***” and “gutter slag.”
Police interview Kieran, 34 years old, and Michelle, 39, at their home before taking Katie to jail overnight.
The mother-of-five spent more than 12 hours at Worthing police station before being released at around 3pm yesterday.
The movie came out many days ago Katie appears on a new Channel 4 show that gives a makeover to the infamous “Mucky Mansion” in West Sussex – and her life.
But she could be behind bars if a court finds she violated her restraining order.
The police can pull her back before the judges if they suspect she has breached its terms and she could be charged with contempt of court.
It is considered a criminal offense, punishable by a fine, community service, or even prison.
The court will look at the original reason the order was made and this could affect the sentence she receives, if found guilty.
Sussex Police said: “At 5.45pm on Friday, police responded to a report that a suspect had breached their restraining order.
“Officers have arrested a woman in her 40s, who has been released for investigation while investigations continue.”
Earlier that day, Katie is said to have begun 100 hours of community service as part of her punishment when driving violation regarding her accident.
But sources say, just hours later, Katie was enraged after seeing one of Michelle’s Instagram posts – which she interprets as a direct attack on her.
The cryptic post read: “If someone treats you badly, just remember that something is wrong with them.
“Ordinary people don’t go to destroy others.”
Katie then texted her. A source close to Michelle’s family said: ‘Katie is clearly lame and her words are despicable.
“She called Michelle ‘c***ing we piece of s***’. As if that wasn’t enough, she even called her ‘fluff.’
“Even though the message was addressed to Kieran, they both felt it was addressed to Michelle. So they contacted the police.
“Michelle is completely devastated, and feels very threatened.
“This message is extremely aggressive. This is another level of continued abuse.
“Given the restraining order being put in place, and the fact that Katie is still serving a suspended sentence, it’s unusual for her to decide to act like this – also without cause.
“As the judge said in sentencing (about the car accident), it seems like she really thinks she’s above the law.”
Katie was married to stripper Kieran from January 2013 to March 2018, although their divorce was not finalized until last July.
They have two kids – Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven.
Kieran began dating Michelle’s mother after meeting at the elementary school their kids both attended.
The couple went public in 2018.
But in June 2019, Katie was slapped with a five-year ban banning her from interacting with Michelle after a nasty swearing at a playground.
‘DIgestion of OTHER Creatures’
At magistrate Horsham’s court, the star admitted calling her “f**c” several times in front of a group of young children.
Michelle said in a victim impact statement that she tries to avoid her ex at school because she feels “threatened”.
The source added: “Michelle was relieved when the order was issued, as she feels she is protected from such abuse again.
“Seeing the ugly insults from Katie this week set things back.
“She was heartbroken and in tears, and needed support. But she feels very tempted to complain, or else she knows it could go on. “
A Kieran spokesman said: “We can confirm that an incident occurred on Friday, after which Michelle was left alone by a series of insults and threats of abuse.”
This is the latest turning point in the turbulent life of reality TV star Katie.
In August, The Sun reported how she was the victim of a violent assault.
A month later, she threw her uninsured BMX X5 into a fence near her home while disqualified and driving under the influence of alcohol.
She was sentenced to 16 weeks of probation for complying with a requirement to attend The Priory — despite shopping while at the facility.
Katie, also previously married to singer Peter Andre and kickboxer Alex Reid, is now engaged to the former Love Island star Carl Woods.
Last week, The Sun reported how Kieran was questioned by police over historic rape allegations after Katie claimed to have an affair with another woman.
He is said to have immediately agreed to the interview and said that he was happy to cooperate and clarify his name.
His spokesman said Kieran was “deeply saddened by the false allegations”.
Katie will return to court this week for an unpaid bill of nearly £7,500 in legal costs.
She is also scheduled to participate in a bankruptcy hearing on February 14.
Promote Katie Price’s Mucky Mansion, which aired on Wednesday night, she said: “I’m leaving the past behind and rebuilding.
“My house resembles my life, it is put together like I am being put together.”
