KATIE Price’s friends worry about who will take care of her son, Harvey if she ends up behind bars.
The troubled 43-year-old will face five years in prison after she allegedly sent a “gutter s**g” text to ex Kieran Hayler about his fiancée .
Her eldest son, 19, – who has disabilities including Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and blindness – currently lives in a residential home but has an incredibly strong relationship with his mother .
The news of her latest arrest has shaken those closest and dearest to her and now they fear the consequences for their children.
A source said: ‘Katie and Harvey are so close and it would break his heart if she wasn’t around.
“He will really struggle to understand why she can’t visit him.
“It’s hard when they haven’t seen each other for weeks, let alone five years.
“Harvey needs his mom and we’re all worried about who’s going to be there for him.”
Harvey’s father is Dwight Yorke, who plays no role in his life.
Katie previously admitted she hoped Harvey died before that because he would find it very difficult without her.
She shared, “The reason I say that is because he wouldn’t be able to cope without me.
“He’s going to be heartbroken because I know everything about him – how he likes to be tickled, the way I end his sentences, I play mom and dad.
“And you can’t beat your mother’s cuddles, no one can cuddle her at school,
I don’t think anyone else could care for him as much as I do and he wouldn’t understand why I wasn’t there. I don’t want him dead, don’t get me wrong, but other mothers will understand who was in my situation.
“It’s because I care about Harvey. Of course, he has siblings who will make sure he’s okay. Just because I have so much relationship with him, it would be counterintuitive. His heart is broken.”
Katie was detained by the police for 12 hours after being arrested at her unlucky mansion on Friday night.
She allegedly sent an abusive text to Kieran aimed at fiancee Michelle Penticost – potentially in violation of a court-imposed restraining order.
Sources close to The Sun told The Sun that the text allegedly branding Michelle as “c***ing w*** e piece of s***” and “gutter s**g”.
The former glamor model could face a maximum sentence of five years in prison if convicted and found guilty.
Katie was given a 16-week suspended prison sentence for drink driving after she overturned her BMW in a horrific crash in September.
